  1. 1. Problems With the Veil of Ignorance, And How We Might Solve Them

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Avdelningen för filosofi, historia, konst och religion

    Author : Anthony Persson; [2022]
    Keywords : Veil of Ignorance; VoI; John Rawls; Limited Veil of Ignorance; Limited VoI; Practical Philosophy; Equality; Unbiased decision-making; Theory of Justice;

    Abstract : Ever since Rawls published The Theory of Justice (1971/2009), the theory itself, along with many of its components, have been subject to intense debate. Both the "original position" and the "veil of ignorance" have been argued to be too unrealistic since the restriction on information makes it impossible to apply in the real world. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evolutionary Properties of Neural Networks: Exploration of Robustness and Evolvability in the Genotype-Phenotype Map

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Beräkningsbiologi och biologisk fysik

    Author : Daesung Cho; [2022]
    Keywords : robustness; evolvability; genotype-phenotype map; canalization; Bayesian inference; simulation-based inference; information theory; neural networks; pyloric rhythm; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Evolution is a fundamental and crucial part of life that hinges on two central properties: robustness and evolvability. Robustness is required to maintain essential traits despite mutations while evolvability produces novel traits that might prove beneficial in survival. READ MORE

  5. 5. Symmetry Analysis of Orbitals in a Plane Wave Basis : A Study on Molecules and Defects in Solids

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Teoretisk Fysik

    Author : William Stenlund; [2022]
    Keywords : Point Defect; Divacancy; Symmetry; Group Theory; DFT; Plane Wave; Plane Wave Basis; 4H-SiC;

    Abstract : Modeling and analysing materials with theoretical tools is of great use when finding new systems for applications, for example, semiconductors with point defects can be used for quantum applications, like single photon emitters. One important aspect to consider symmetry, which can yield useful information about the properties of a system. READ MORE
