Fixing extensions to General Relativity in the non-linear regime. (arXiv:1706.07421v1 [gr-qc])  hep-th updates on arXiv.org on 2017-6-24 7:39am GMT Authors: Juan Cayuso, Néstor Ortiz, Luis Lehner The question of what gravitational theory could supersede General Relativity has been central in theoretical physics for decades. Many disparate alternatives have been proposed motivated by cosmology, quantum gravity and phenomenological angles, and have been subjected to… Read more →

On testing the simulation hypothesis

Tom Campbell, Houman Owhadiy, Joe Sauvageauz, David Watkinson Can the hypothesis that reality is a simulation be tested? We investigate this question based on the assumption that if the system performing the simulation is fi nite (i.e. has limited resources), then to achieve low computational complexity, such a system would, as in a video game, render content (reality) only at the moment that information… Read more →
