"Reflexivity in Mathematics and Cybernetics" is a 3hours Workshop delivered by Professor Louis Kauffman at the The 14th World MultiConference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics: WMSCI 2010, on June 29th, 2010.
Professor Kauffman was the President of the American Society for Cybernetics (19971998).
He is the 1993 recipient of the Warren McCulloch award of the American Society for
Cybernetics. He “is the founding editor and one of the managing editors of the Journal
of Knot Theory and its Ramifications, and editor of the World Scientific Book Series
On Knots and Everything. He writes a column entitled Virtual Logic for the journal
Cybernetics and Human Knowing.” his “interests are in cybernetics, topology (knot
theory and its ramifications) and foundations of mathematics and physics. His work
is primarily in knot theory and connections with statistical mechanics, quantum
theory, algebra, combinatorics and foundations. These fields include representation
and exploration of topology, fractals and recursions using computers, logical and
diagrammatic algebras, Hopf algebras, relations of topology with statistical mechanics
and quantum field theory, foundations of discrete physics, quantum computing. In
topology he introduced and developed the bracket polynomial and Kauffman polynomial.”
