This paper describes a novel perspective on the foundations of mathematics: how mathematics may be seen to be largely about 'information compression (IC) via the matching and unification of patterns' (ICMUP. That is itself a novel approach to IC, couched in terms of non-mathematical primitives, as is necessary in any investigation of the foundations of mathematics. This new perspective on the foundations of mathematics has grown out of a long-term programme of research developing the SP Theory of Intelligence and its realisation in the SP Computer Model, a system in which a generalised version of ICMUP -- the powerful concept of SP-multiple-alignment -- plays a central role. The paper shows with an examplehow mathematics, without any special provision, may achieve compression of information. Then it describes examples showing how variants of ICMUPmay be seen in widely-used structures and operations in mathematics. Examples are also given to show how several aspects of the mathematics-related disciplines of logic and computing may be understood as ICMUP. Also discussed is the intimate relation between IC and concepts of probability, witharguments that there are advantages in approaching AI, cognitive science,and concepts of probability via ICMUP. Also discussed is how the close relation between IC and concepts of probability relates to the established view that some parts of mathematics are intrinsically probabilistic, and how that latter view may be reconciled with the all-or-nothing, 'exact', forms of calculation or inference that are familiar in mathematics and logic. There aremany potential benefits and applications of the mathematics-as-IC perspective. Category: General Mathematics
I have a SketchUp Pro 2017 license on my Windows 10 Home and a SketchUp Pro 2016 license on my Windows 8.1. I used to be able to download more than one file per license from 3D Warehouse at the same time. Now I can only download one at a time and I cannot download more than one SketchUp Pro 2017 license... any idea?
