by - University of East Anglia
These notes describe several situations in dynamics where the notion of valuations on rings provides a simple language in which to describe and exploit hyperbolicity. This approach goes a little beyond simply providing a convenient language.

by - arXiv
This article will take up the question of what underlies the quantum formalism, whether it can be derived from simpler mathematical structures, and if so, what physical properties a system must possess in order for the formalism to hold.
