Logical Independence




A chapter from Steve Faulkner's book:

The Underlying Machinery of Quantum Indeterminacy

Knowing precisely what drives necessity for the imaginary unit's presence in Quantum Theory resolves the question of quantum indeterminacy.

This chapter introduces ideas of logical independence.

Hans Reichenbach's 3-valued logic invokes the idea that quantum indeterminacy involves logical independence. Meaning and definition are given, and propositions used to represent experiments by Tomasz paterek et al: 'Logical Independence and Quantum Randomness' are cited as example. The role of logical independence in axioms systems is discussed. And ingression of logical independence through simultaneity or self-reference, also.
