Leibniz, Information, Math and Physics
Authors: G. J. Chaitin (IBM Research)
Subj-class: History and Overview
MSC-class: 68Q30

  The information-theoretic point of view proposed by Leibniz in 1686 and developed by algorithmic information theory (AIT) suggests that mathematics and physics are not that different. This will be a first-person account of some doubts and speculations about the nature of mathematics that I have entertained for the past three decades, and which have now been incorporated in a digital philosophy paradigm shift that is sweeping across the sciences.
