Quanta, logic and spacetime by S. A. Selesnick

By S. A. Selesnick

During this improved variation of Quanta, common sense and Spacetime, the logical base is drastically broadened and quantum-computational facets of the strategy are delivered to the fore. the 1st elements of this variation might certainly be considered as supplying a self-contained and logic-based origin for — and an advent to — the company often called quantum computing.

The remainder of the paintings takes at the activity (as within the first version) of computing from first ideas convinced dynamical expressions which end up to match favorably with the Lagrangian densities of the (massless) common version, together with gravity. The common sense of this procedure is now topic to larger formal rigor than used to be attainable within the first variation, and the principal thesis — that quantum physics at a primary point may perhaps itself be discovered as a species of quantum computation — is strongly underscored.
