Dear Folks, I am sending this again, just the quantum part, with typos removed. Best, Lou Quantum Theory in a Nutshell 1. A state of a quantum system is a vector |psi> of unit length in a complex vector space H. H is a Hilbert space, but it can be finite dimensional. Dual vectors are

Dear FIS Colleagues, For my taste the ongoing conversation is running too fast. We have passed, via Louis, Plamen, and other colleagues, along essential themes on the relationship between life and formal approaches, perhaps too cavalierly. I am still stuck with the problem of explanation in

Dear Lou and Colleagues, yes, I agree: an artistic approach can be very fruitful. This is like what Stuart Kauffman says about speaking with metaphors. At some point our mathematical descriptive tools do not have sufficient expressional power to grasp more global general insights and we reach out

Louis, a very simple question: in your model of self-replication, when you enter the environment, could it mean something else than just providing the raw stuff for reproduction? It would be great if related to successive cycles one could include emergent topological (say
