FREE READ ☆ uantum Computing Since Democritus In antiuity with Democritus it progresses through logic and set theory computability and complexity theory uantum computing cryptography the information content of uantum states and the interpretation of uantum mechanics There are also extended discussions about time travel. I now have a papers and books and topics reading list that might take a few years to complete Pretty sure I didn t understand half of the interactive proofs chapter and my takeaway as it often is is that I really need to know math One always needs to know math Diary of an SM Romance few years to complete Pretty sure I didn t understand half of the interactive proofs chapter and my takeaway as it often is is that I really need to know math One always needs to know math

FREE READ ☆ uantum Computing Since Democritus Written by noted uantum computing theorist Scott Aaronson this book takes readers on a tour through some of the deepest ideas of maths computer science and physics Full of insights arguments and philosophical perspectives the book covers an amazing array of topics Beginning. Aaronson s book is based off his online lecture notes which I hadn t read before though I ve read his blog for years I was really excited when the book was announced since I hoped for expanded better version of his incredibly interesting papermonograph Why Philosophers Should Care About Computational Complexity abstract In particular I argue that computational complexity theory the field that studies the resources such as time space and randomness needed to solve computational problems leads to new perspectives on the nature of mathematical knowledge the strong AI debate computationalism the problem of logical omniscience Hume s problem of induction Goodman s grue riddle the foundations of uantum mechanics economic rationality closed timelike curves and several other topics of philosophical interest I end by discussing aspects of complexity theory itself that could benefit from philosophical analysis and see also his recent The Ghost in the uantum Turing MachineThe book turns out to be excellent but not the 5 star universally compelling suitable for the layman professional alike complete coverage of all that is interesting about computational complexity and uantum I was hoping for I d say probably that one could get 80% of the value from reading Why Philosophers Should Care About Computational Complexity and even if one is not particularly interested in computational complexity or uantum computing for their own sakesPros best book I ve ever read on computational complexity repeatedly throws out fascinating observations learned a lot of new things even after years reading Aaronson s blog PAC learning Blum s speedup theorem Tarski s decision algorithm humor better than expectedCons some key arguments are sketched out briefly or badly eg I don t know how anyone would understand Aaronson s version of Cantor s diagonal proof compared to longer better illustrated versions like Hofstadter s in G del Escher Bach the complex probability version of uantum mechanics didn t seem much transparent to me than other versions maybe if I had a physics degree Not that I really understood the uantish universe in Drescher s eually excellent book Good and Real either overuse of complexity zoo abbreviations no discernible connection to Democritus or the Democritus uote some later chapters highly technical and specialized and uninteresting eg the size of uantum states not always meaningfully connected Aaronson randomly inserts bizarre and sloppy anti Bayesian digs like at the end of his chapter on anthropics he seems to think it refutes the religion of Bayesianism Dude WTF No one understands or agrees on anyone in anthropics that s the whole point of half the field constructing paradoxes unpleasant implications of the most sensible principles and you want to use anthropics as an argument against Bayesianism You want to disprove the eminently successful practical by the useless bizarre If ever there was a moment that the saying one man s modus tollens is another man s modus ponens was appropriateI made excerpts of the book as I read it Preface chapters 1 3 4 5 9 11 15 16 22

uantum Computing Since Democritus (DOWNLOAD) This reads a bit like Hey I'm Scott Aaronson and here's my perspective on a bunch of topics which don't get me wrong is entertaining because Scott has an uh impressive intellectual batting average He's managed to glean a fair bit of insight about the sort of topics that mathematicians would call philosophy and philosophers would call mathematicsThe book suffers from lack of a really cohesive theme though which is what we're all
