Frankl, My Dear : 5

Re: Dick Lipton & Ken Regan • (1) • (2) Putting all thought of the Frankl Conjecture out of our minds for the moment, let’s return to the proposition in Example 1 and work through its differential analysis from scratch. Example … Continue reading

Semiotic Theory Of Information : 6

2014 Oct 14 Through the 1970s I gradually recovered from my early traumas with Fortran, and with the aid of more symbol-friendly programming languages like Lisp and Pascal began to play around again with implementing simple forms of graphical calculi … Continue reading

Semiotic Theory Of Information : 4

2014 Oct 08 “Let us now return to the information.”  To coin a phrase.  This time around we come to Peirce’s notion of information in a critical and recurring passage that Frederik Stjernfelt takes as the next stepping stone from … Continue reading
