Animated Logical Graphs : 10

Re: Peirce List Discussion • Charles Pyle Let’s consider Peirce’s logical graphs at the alpha level, the abstract forms of which can be interpreted for propositional logic.  I say “can be interpreted” advisedly because the system of logical graphs itself … Continue reading

Re: Ken Regan • The Shapes of Computations The insight that it takes to find a succinct axiom set for a theoretical domain falls under the heading of abductive or retroductive reasoning, a knack as yet refractory to computational attack, … Continue reading

Re: Ken Regan • The Shapes of Computations The most striking example of a “Primitive Insight Proof” (PIP❢) known to me is the Dawes–Utting proof of the Double Negation Theorem from the CSP–GSB axioms for propositional logic. There is a … Continue reading

Re: Ken Regan • The Shapes of Computations There are several issues of computation shape and proof style that raise their heads already at the logical ground level of boolean functions and propositional calculus.  From what I’ve seen, there are … Continue reading

Survey of Theme One Program • 1

This is a Survey of previous blog and wiki posts on the Theme One Program that I worked on all through the 1980s. The aim of the project was to develop fundamental algorithms and data structures to support an integrated … Continue reading
