New volume: A Computable Universe

With a foreword by Sir Roger Penrose, my new volume A Computable Universe has been published by World Scientific and the Imperial College Press after my bestseller Randomness Through Computation in 2011. A Computable Universe: Understanding and Exploring Nature as Computation, introduces the views of the pioneers in the computable universe view of the world and some of its […]

Irreducibility and Computational Equivalence is a collection of contributions by outstanding authors in celebration of Stephen Wolfram’s A New Kind of Science after 10 years of its publication. Published by Springer Verlag it is already available both Paperback and Hardcover, as well as an eBook and CDF (computable document). Here is a free preview and the […]

Life as Thermodynamic Evidence of Algorithmic Structure in Natural Environments

In evolutionary biology, attention to the relationship between stochastic organisms and their stochastic environments has leaned towards the adaptability and learning capabilities of the organisms rather than toward the properties of the environment. This article is devoted to the algorithmic aspects of the environment and its interaction with living organisms. We ask whether one may […]

Announcing the Online Algorithmic Complexity Calculator

We have made available a basic beta version of an Online Algorithmic Complexity Calculator implementing the methods we have developed in recent papers at the Algorithmic Nature lab. The OACC provides a comprehensive framework of universal mathematical measures of algorithmic complexity for researchers and professionals. It retrieves objective numerical measures of randomness for potential applications […]
