Quantum Computation and Logic: How Quantum Computers Have Inspired Logical Investigations

Quantum Computation and Logic: How Quantum Computers Have Inspired Logical Investigations by Maria Luisa Dalla Chiara
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 192 Pages | ISBN : 303004470X | 17.88 MB

This book provides a general survey of the main concepts, questions and results that have been developed in the recent interactions between quantum information, quantum computation and logic. Divided into 10 chapters, the books starts with an introduction of the main concepts of the quantum-theoretic formalism used in quantum information. It then gives a synthetic presentation of the main “mathematical characters” of the quantum computational game: qubits, quregisters, mixtures of quregisters, quantum logical gates.

Inference in Argumentation: A Topics-Based Approach to Argument Schemes

Inference in Argumentation: A Topics-Based Approach to Argument Schemes by Eddo Rigotti
English | PDF | 2019 | 349 Pages | ISBN : 3030045668 | 6.43 MB

This book investigates the role of inference in argumentation, considering how arguments support standpoints on the basis of different loci. The authors propose and illustrate a model for the analysis of the standpoint-argument connection, called Argumentum Model of Topics (AMT). A prominent feature of the AMT is that it distinguishes, within each and every single argumentation, between an inferential-procedural component, on which the reasoning process is based; and a material-contextual component, which anchors the argument in the interlocutors’ cultural and factual common ground. The AMT explains how these components differ and how they are intertwined within each single argument.
