**Mathematical Principals of Dynamic Systems and the Foundations of Quantum Physics**

by Eric Tesse

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 87

**Description**:

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. Of particular interest will be the question of determining the set of allowed experiments.

**Variational Modelling: Energies, gradient flows, and large deviations**

by

**Mark A. Peletier**-

**arXiv**

The notes describe the methodology called Variational Modelling, and focus on the application to the modelling of gradient-flow systems. I describe the methodology itself in great detail, and explain why this is a rational modelling route.
