Alternative Logics. Do Sciences Need Them? by Paul A. Weingartner

By Paul A. Weingartner

Initially proposed as competitors of classical common sense, substitute logics became more and more very important in sciences resembling quantum physics, machine technological know-how, and synthetic intelligence. The contributions accrued right here deal with the query even if using good judgment within the sciences, in particular in glossy physics, calls for a deviation from classical mathematical common sense. The articles within the first a part of the publication set the scene by means of describing the context and the predicament while utilising good judgment in technology. partially II the authors supply numerous logics that deviate in numerous methods. The twelve papers partly III examine intimately particular features comparable to quantum common sense, quantum computation, computer-science concerns, praxic common sense, and quantum likelihood. The monograph presents a succinct photograph of modern examine in replacement logics as they've been built for functions within the sciences.
