After an investigation of the well-known basic properties of muons conducted by the standard model (SM), this paper presents the results obtained for the phase space reconstruction, for the correlation dimension and for the largest Lyapunov exponent of a muon time series detected for a period of about three years (2019-2021) in an Italian laborator...

ADA, short for Astroparticle Detectors Array, is an educational project aiming to detect
cosmic radiation and possibly high-energy particles known as ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs)
or even to spot a supernova event. Its working process is the same as that used in professional
cosmic ray observatories: it consists of simple detectors spread...

We study a new fractal model for prediction of contagions of CoViD-19 using experimental data from October 10, 2020 to predict contagions from November until February 2021 in Italy. We obtain that the time of the peak is estimated to be at November 11, 2020 when number of contagions will be about 38489 cases.

We study a new fractal model for prediction of contagions of CoViD-19 (SarbecoBetavirus SARS-CoV-2) from August 24, 2020 to July 31, 20201 in Sicily that is a region of Italy. We obtain that the time of the peak is estimated to be at December 7, 2020 and the number of contagions will be about 903 cases.

A new theorem is demonstrated. There is a class of biquaternions for which the power of the biquaternions at the order n is so that R^(n-1)is different from 0 and R^n=0 .This theorem is of interest not only in the mathematical tool of the biquaternion field but it is of particular interest also in the applications of biquaternion algebra in quantum...

We perform an analysis of brain-neuromuscular synchronization and coupling strength in muscular dystrophy before and after NPT treatment. In order to estimate with accuracy the level of brain synchronization, we introduce and use the method of the cross GMI that was elaborated by Pompe. The finality is to account for the nonlinear chaotic dynamic c...

Consciuosness is a self–referential entity having self–awareness and awareness of the outside world, both specific for each subject. In the book, the authors evidence that such two basic properties of consciousness are reached by the basic formulation of Clifford algebric quantum mechanics and, at macroscopic level, by complexity and chaos theory....

We have performed an analysis of a system that by combination of tVNS and Brain Entrainment is technology that rapidly should reduce the sympathetic activity and increases the parasympathetic activity in cases of depression, anxiety and stress. We have performed measurements of the GSR, of EEG and of HRV obtaining confirmatory results.

The aim of the present work has a methodological profile. It aims to analyze the HRV during thirty minutes transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation tVNS treatment. We used the linear methodology of the Fast Fourier Transform and an analysis of the variability of the R-R signal in frequency domain under such conditions of stimulation. As specialized m...

A diminishing or disrupting fractal/multifractal structure of HRV is
consistently reported as related to a serious ANS dysfunction that of course we study in several psychological and psychiatric disorders. We observed a net improvement in the multifractal HRV structure of such subjects during the transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation.

After an articulated exposition of the basic features of the Clifford algebra we give evidence that the basic elements of
this algebra may represent the basic entities of the mind. According also to the previous basic results of V.A. Lefebvre, who studied conscience, we delineate
also some peculiarities of the consciousness and we give proof that t...

as well as when we submit them to a methodological examination.

We demonstrate that Rorschach ink-blots are multifractals. Normal subjects have been studied by recording their GSR, a neurological and psychophysiological signal, during two minute's observation of each Rorschach ink blot. We have determined that the induced perceptive dynamics in the subjects are also multifractal. Once studied within the framewo...

The transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Device of the Solace Life-Sciences has been conceived to give a reduction or remission of a number of psychological disorders.

The emerging discipline of Quantum Cognitive Studies is filled with promise and pitfalls. The rich and detailed formalism of quantum theory must be closely considered in crafting an approach to the field. This essay strikes a cautionary note in assessment of trends which reduce the theory to instrumentalism. A brief accounting of the proper formali...

Quantum cognition is a scientific approach to cognitive phenomena which makes use of the mathe- matical formalism of quantum theory. Quantum interference effect constitutes one of this theory’s main tenets and has been repeatedly demonstrated experimentally, in the last decade, in adult subjects. In the present paper, we aim to demonstrate, for the...

We discuss a celebrated experiment of quantum mechanics to evidence that quantum mechanics delineates a novel feature of our reality in which cognition enters as primary element, strongly linked ab initio to the dynamics of matter.

It is well known that the decrease of the Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is related to a number of important pathologies involving cardiovascular system as well as psychological and psychiatric disorders. In such case a prompt recover of HRV and, in particular, of parasympathetic modulation is required in the ANS (Autonomic Nervous System). In order...
