Towards Collinear Evolution Equations in Electroweak Theory  [PDF]
M. Ciafaloni,P. Ciafaloni,D. Comelli
Physics , 2001, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.88.102001
Abstract: We consider electroweak radiative corrections to hard inclusive processes at the TeV scale, and we investigate how collinear logarithms factorize in a spontaneously broken gauge theory, similarly to the DGLAP analysis in QCD. Due to the uncancelled double logs noticed previously, we find a factorization pattern which is qualitatively different from the analogous one in QCD. New types of splitting functions emerge which are needed to describe the initial beam charges and are infrared-sensitive, that is dependent on an infrared cutoff provided, ultimately, by the symmetry breaking scale. We derive such splitting functions at one-loop level in the example of SU(2) gauge theory, and we also discuss the structure functions' evolution equations, under the assumption that isospin breaking terms present in the Ward identities of the theory are sufficiently subleading at higher orders.
Towards a gauge theory for evolution equations on vector-valued spaces  [PDF]
Stefano Cardanobile,Delio Mugnolo
Mathematics , 2009, DOI: 10.1063/1.3227666
Abstract: We investigate symmetry properties of vector-valued diffusion and Schr\"odinger equations. For a separable Hilbert space $H$ we characterize the subspaces of $L^2(\Omega, H)$ that are local (i.e., defined pointwise) and discuss the issue of their invariance under the time evolution of the differential equation. In this context, the possibility of a connection between our results and the theory of gauge symmetries in mathematical physics is explored.
Towards an Ethics of Technology: Re-Exploring Teilhard de Chardin’s Theory of Technology and Evolution  [PDF]
Archimedes C. Articulo
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2014.44054
Abstract: Defining the mechanism of evolution is a controversial issue that, until now, divides the scientific community. Some have argued in the strictest Darwinian terms that evolution’s primary mechanism is necessity—“survival of the fittest”. Other evolutionists followed in the footsteps of Jacques Monod, the French biologist, who argued for a mixture of random chance and necessity. Teilhard de Chardin, it is widely believed, took Monod one step further by asserting that evolution is the fundamental motion of the entire universe, an ascent along a privileged and necessary pathway toward consciousness—thus, evolution was guided chance and necessity. However, if evolution is being guided, what is doing the guiding? And where, ultimately, is it going? His bold answers brought Teilhard to the heart of a widely perceived scientific, as well as religious, heresy. A heresy that was effectively silenced, and soon would re-emerge as the world began witnessing exponential advancements in Science and Technology (specifically, on computing, nano-technology, robotics and genetic engineering). Almost half a century after the publication of Phenomenology of Man, many futurist thinkers have began noticing that the super-fast acceleration in the passage of time for evolution is moving in a very different direction than that for the Universe from which it emerges. This paper puts forward the thesis that the philosophical underpinning of a “human-sponsored variant of evolution” (i.e. evolution towards convergence of biological and non-biological intelligence) finds support and meaning within Teilhard de Chardin’s theory of evolution (i.e. evolution towards consciousness). It specifically covers 1) the implications of advancing technologies in human evolution and consciousness within the context of Teilhard’s theory of evolution; 2) how, after homo sapiens silently emerged around 500,000 years ago (with larger brains, particularly in the area of the highly convoluted cortex responsible for rational thought), and after they develop computing, the story of evolution has progressed exponentially paving the way for the possibility of turning Teilhard’s controversial ideas (such as the Noosphere) more than a poetic image; and 3) how the grandest creations of evolution—consciousness and intelligence—provide for the very tool that may allow homo sapiens to take over the course and direction of their own evolution—without necessarily shedding their desire to search for spiritual truth in a secular universe.
SELF IN THE PATH(O)S OF THE NEW ENLIGHTENMENT: TOWARDS A NEW CLINICAL THEORY
OLGA LOUCHAKOVA-SCHWARTZ
Agathos : an International Review of the Humanities and Social Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: Starting from the New Enlightenment, announced by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka to be emerging in the post-postmodern era, a conflict is possible to manifest between the positive spirit in the name and the awareness of today’s societal and cultural problems. The paper focuses to resolving this conflict. The idea of New Enlightenment comes out of Tymieniecka’s phenomenological analysis of the logoic networks of life with identification of logoic unification of reason and intuition, and the insight into the ontological self-poiesis of life, i.e. ontopoiesis. Scientific progress takes place due to the ontopoietic self-disclosure of life. Understanding the ontopoiesis refocuses attention from trauma to the growing loci of the self, and creates an emergent alternative to existential pessimism of postmodern therapies. The paper examines healing aspects of ontopoietic direct intuition that mediate living engagement with the real. Human subject is not thrown into existence against the will, but is integrated into the flow of life and posesses selfreflective freedom of choice. This reframing of existential yearning invokes new clinical theory. The expanded interpretation of self and other, of health and disease calls for transformation of the mind towards the rise of ontopoietic intuition and direct perception of logoic ontopoiesis.
On one number-theoretic conception: towards a new theory  [PDF]
Rom Varshamov,Armen Bagdasaryan
Mathematics , 2009,
Abstract: In this paper we present a new mathematical conception based on a new method for ordering the integers. The method relies on the assumption that negative numbers are beyond infinity, which goes back to Wallis and Euler. We also present a new axiom system, the model of which is arithmetics. We define regular method for summation of infinite series which allows us to discover general and unified approach to summation of divergent series, and determine the limits of unbounded and oscillating functions. Several properties for divergent series and explicit formulas for sums of some infinite series are established. A number of finite and new recurrence formulas for Bernoulli numbers are obtained. We rederive some known results, but in a simpler and elementary way, and establish new results by means of techniques of the theoretical background developed.
A Review and Prospect on the Internationalization Process of Service Multinational Corporations  [PDF]
Liwen Wang, Haiquan Chen
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2015.81009
Abstract: The internationalization of service industry, which is the main symbol of economic globalization, has entered a new era. As the practice pioneer of service industry internationalization, service multinational enterprises have deeply changed the development pattern of the world service industry, and impacted on the status and interests of the world industry chain. This study takes a systematic review about the internationalization process of service multinational corporations. This internationalization process consists of two portions, the process of service multinational corporations enter the international market and the operation process after entry. Then this study points out the future research prospect, in order to provide a research direction for extending the theory of internationalization process of multinational corporations.
Thermodynamic Theory of Biological Evolution and Aging. Experimental Confirmation of Theory
Georgi P. Gladyshev
Entropy , 1999, DOI: 10.3390/e1040055
Abstract: The work presents experimental confirmation of the author's thermodynamic theory of the biological evolution and aging of living beings. It shows that using the law of temporal hierarchies and the second law of thermodynamics, it is easy to describe biological evolution (phylogeny) and ontogeny in terms of equilibrium hierarchical thermodynamics. This theory explains many known facts and makes it possible to formulate new practical recommendations in the sphere of medical and biological disciplines, for instance, dietology, gerontology, and geriatrics. Using the models of temporal hierarchies when studying living nature, researchers can go a long way towards understanding it.
A new concept of relatedness and its significance to the theory of social evolution
Drummond, M.S.;
Genetics and Molecular Biology , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S1415-47572000000100008
Abstract: data on primitively social groups of hymenoptera have been somewhat contradictory with respect to kin recognition, degree of relatedness and social evolution. this study presents a new concept of "relatedness coefficient". called "aggregated relatedness", the hypothesis here introduced proposes that genes shared by any two individuals affect formation of family units to an extent dependent on their frequency and manner of dispersion in neighboring populations.

Evolution of DA white dwarfs in the context of a new theory of convection  [PDF]
L. G. Althaus,O. G. Benvenuto
Physics , 1998, DOI: 10.1046/j.1365-8711.1998.01332.x
Abstract: In this study we compute the structure and evolution of carbon-oxygen DA white dwarfs by means of a detailed and updated evolutionary code. We treat the energy transport by convection within the formalism of the full spectrum turbulence theory, as given by the Canuto, Goldman and Mazzitelli (CGM) model. We explore the effect of various hydrogen layer masses on both the surface gravity and the hydrogen burning. Convective mixing at low luminosities is also considered. One of our main interests in this work has been to study the evolution of ZZ Ceti models, with the aim of comparing the CGM and mixing length theory (MLT) predictions. In this connection, we find that the temperature profile given by the CGM model is markedly different from that of the ML1 and ML2 versions of MLT. We have also computed approximate effective temperatures for the theoretical blue edge of the DA instability strip by using thermal timescale arguments for our evolving models. In this context, we found that the CGM theory leads to blue edges that are cooler than the observed ones. However, because the determination of the atmospheric parameters of ZZ Ceti stars is dependent on the assumed convection description in model atmosphere calculation, observed blue edges computed considering the CGM theory are required in order to perform a sef consistent comparison of our results with observations. Finally, detailed pulsation calculations of ZZ Ceti models considering the CGM convection would be necessary to place the results found in this paper on a firmer basis.
