Use of Moore’s Law to Predict Implementation and Advancing of Science and Technology in Supporting Halal Requirements: a Scopus Study

Authors: Sparisoma Viridi, Yazid Bindar, Sony Suhandono, Edwan Kardena, Rifqi, Aulia Eka Fitriani, Sri Indah Ihsani
Comments: 6 pages, 7 figures, 3 tables, conference paper on the Second Symposium On Global Halal Research, 30 September 2015, Jakarta, Indonesia

A literature study of number of publications listed in Scopus has been performed. Observation is limited only from 1990 to mid of 2015. The word halal is used in searching title, abstract, and keywords of the publications. Only four subject areas are considered: (i) agricultural and biological sciences, (ii) engineering, (iii) medicine, and (iv) computer sciences. In general sum of all fields tends to increase rapidly between 2010 and 2012 but then they decrease in the last three years of observation range. It also makes smooth pattern from 1999 until 2009. Individual field shows fluctuated pattern. Moore’s law in form of N(t) = N_0 exp[k(t – t_0)] is implemented by setting some parameters such as offset of starting time t_0, exponent constant k, and proportional constant N_0. Correlation among observed fields is also discussed in brief.

Physics Time-Line 585BC to 2000

Authors: Philip Gibbs
Comments: 22 Pages.

From the Greek philosophers to string theorists, this is the chronology of discoveries in physics and cosmology. According to Legend, Archimedes discovered the principle of buoyancy while taking a bath. He jumped out and ran through the streets shouting "Eureka!" The scientific revolution took off 1800 years later after Gutenberg introduced the printing press in Europe and Coperincus broke the old cosmology and put humans in their place away from the centre of the universe. Since then, thousands of scientists have experienced that Eureka moment when they realised that they have seen a fundamental truth not known before. These pages contain, in chronological order, a selective list of those discoveries from natural philosophy. These are the findings which have helped us understand the laws of physics, the universe and our place in it. The time-line is not yet complete and many more scientists will have the privilege of contributing to its future. Today the internet is taking over from print as the primary means of communicating scientific discoveries and anyone who wants to can participate.

Logical Concepts and Elements Dimensions

Authors: Dwayne Huang
Comments: 124 Pages. CC BY-NC-SA 4.0

The goal of the article, it is derivate and prove and improve acceptable current mainstream theories by the performance of dimension change in closed system. Finally it achieves a united theory to explain everything of world. The description from chapter one to chapter three: In the process of the close derivation from concept and logic to element and dimension, and with the projection of relativity 5-D (point is 1-D, line is 2-D, point and line 3-D, plane is 4-D, cube body is 5-D), it derives Square and Circle and Inclination and Ellipse these four constants. And it expressed how to realize Space and Time and Substance and Living Creature and Intelligence. In chapter four, it explains 1-D expression of number by the dimensional structure of Fibonacci number. In chapter five, it explains how to express digit in image by the projection of microscopic substance on plane (Nuclear Fusion).

Holism and the Geometrization and Unification of Fundamental Physical Interactions (An Essay on Philosophy of Physics)

Authors: Marek Wojciech Kalinowski
Comments: 233 Pages.

We are looking for a paradigm of modern physics and this essay is devoted to this problem. Thus in the essay we consider very important problems of philosophy of physics: a unification and a geometrization of fundamental physical interactions and holism. We are looking for holistic approaches in many different domains of physics. Simultaneously we look for some holistic approaches in the history of philosophy and compare them to approaches in physics. We consider a unification and a geometrization of physical interac- tions in contemporary physics in order to find some connections with many philosophical approaches known in the history of philosophy. In this way we want to connect humanity to natural sciences, i.e. physics. In the his- tory of philosophy there are several basic principles, so-called “arche”. Our conclusion is that a contemporary “arche” is geometry as in the Einstein programme connected to a holistic approach. In our meaning geometry as “arche” of physics will be a leading idea in a fundamental physics. Physics itself will be a leading force in philosophy of science and philosophy itself. Cultural quasi-reality (in R. Ingarden’s meaning) and also biology, medicine and social sciences will be influenced by physics. In this way a cultural quasi-reality will be closer to physical reality.
