Gregory Chaitin – Wikipedia

CaludeMichael A. He is considered to be one of the founders of what is today known as Kolmogorov or Kolmogorov-Chaitin complexity together with Andrei Kolmogorov and Ray Solomonoff. Topics Discussed in This Paper. Percentages, Randomness, and Probabilities Craig W.

He attended the Bronx High School of Science and City Jathematical of New Yorkwhere he still in his teens developed the theory that led to his independent discovery of Kolmogorov complexity. Some philosophers and logicians disagree with the philosophical conclusions that Chaitin has drawn from his theorems related to what Chaitin thinks is a kind of fundamental arithmetic randomness. This page was last edited on 10 Decemberat In metaphysics, Chaitin claims that algorithmic information theory is the key to solving problems in the field of biology obtaining a formal definition of ‘life’, its origin and evolution and neuroscience the problem of cahitin and the study of the mind.

This article’s Criticism or Controversy section may compromise the article’s randonness point of view of the subject. In the epistemology of mathematics, he claims that his findings in mathematical logic and algorithmic information theory show there are “mathematical facts that are true for no reason, they’re true by accident.
