Brink invokes multiple realizability to defend nonreductionism, which he calls "constitutional materialism," against reductionism, which he calls "identity materialism":
When we combine this feature of functionalism with its allowing for the multiple realizability of mental states, we get the conclusion that utterly different physical objects--for example, my brain and the silicon-based brain of a Martian creature--may be identical in their mentally relevant causal powers.
However, this "multiple realizability" does not break causal ties.
52) by considering both the positive expectations of its realizability and potential negative consequences.
The realizability issue, alluded to above, becomes even more critical when we attempt to design an "invisible" cloak, which is highly sought after by cloak designers.
Condition (10) provides a limit cycle-free realizability condition for the system with saturation arithmetic.
Section 4 demonstrates the realizability of the multiscroll chaotic oscillator having high values of the (positive) maximum Lyapunov exponent (MLE).
Even for orientations of uniform matroids, there is no finite set of excluded minors for realizability [BS89] [BLVS+99, Theorem 8.3.5].
The idea of condition 4 comes from what are known as the Fulkerson-Chen inequalities for digraph realizability. Fulkerson studied digraph realizability in the context of zero-one matrices with zero trace [7].
"However, they often are concerned about the realizability of receivables and inventory, which is something the most common special-purpose frameworks do not address."
Ehring officially wishes to remain a nonreductivist about properties (138) since he supports multiple realizability arguments, but he takes the sensible view that there is no exclusion or competition between parts and wholes regarding causal efficacy, even for properties.
Our late study of helix-shaped arrays in THz region demonstrated the realizability of increasing the waveband up to 1.5 octaves.
