On the Cause for the Hooligan Behavior

Authors: Emanuel Gluskin
Comments: 9 Pages. It is a very important topic, and the "system" outlook suggested is urgent, I think.

The hypothesis is put forward that hooligan behavior is based on some unperceived protest of an individual, or a group, against intellectual overstress, or, equivalently, it is based on the individuals' intuitive fear of such overstress that the society imposes (or "threatens" to impose) on them. The violent actions of the hooligans combine the quick movements that develop (activate) the left hemisphere of the brain, and the cruelty that prevents development (activity) of the right hemisphere, which improves the balance in the development of the hemispheres. Hooliganism indicates an important alarm informing one about the increasing intellectual stress in the society, which indeed is unhealthy for many. The hooligans need help, which, as the recent "days of violence" show, is rather urgent. However, the things to be changed are traditional, not well controlled, and thus hardly can be changed quickly. Some constructive suggestions are formulated.

Electrical ANN Circuits (1-ports) and Schrödinger's "What is Life?"

Authors: Emanuel Gluskin
Comments: 46 Pages. These are NDES 2012 (11-13 July, 2012, Wolfenbuttel) conference slides of one of the two my lectures given there. Actually, I had not time for all of the slides, and their content also strongly extends that of the associated Proceedings paper.

In his book (brochure) [1] “What is life?” Erwin Schrödinger widely uses the terms of “entropy” and “structure”, trying to simply define the physical essence of life. Though [1] is a problematic work with internal corrections and numerous apologies, i.e. not formal science, just some ideas, the most important concepts involved, structure and complexity, are sufficiently clear for drawing the attention of system specialists to [1], and even for continuing the line of [1].
