Relativity and Cosmology


Do Universal Turing Machines Imply Special Relativity?

Authors: Alexandre Harvey-Tremblay

My purpose with this paper is to show that the theory of special relativity is derivable from universal Turing machines. Specifically, I construct a partition function of Ω such that the program-runtime and the program-size are observables of a prefix free universal Turing machine. This partition function implies a maximum speed in bits per iterations of the UTM, which has a similar interpretation as the speed of light does in special relativity.
