# Papers

**Hamiltonian mechanics is conservation of information entropy (2020)**:
shows that Hamiltonian mechanics describes systems and only systems that conserve entropy over time.
Accepted for publication in Studies in History and Philosophy of Modern Physics

**The fundamental connections between classical Hamiltonian mechanics, quantum mechanics and information entropy (2020)**:
argues that the main difference between classical and quantum mechanics is the information available about the internal
dynamics of the system. Published in in International Journal of Quantum Information

**Variability as a better characterization of Shannon entropy (2019)**: provides a physically more meaningful
way to characterize information entropy and a more precise account of its relationship to statistical mechanics.

**Towards a general mathematical theory of experimental science (2018)**: summarizes
the logic of verifiable statements.

**Topology and experimental distinguishability (2017)**: first attempt to formalize the first
part of the derivation up to topological spaces. Published in Topology Proceedings.

**From physical assumptions to classical and quantum Hamiltonian and Lagrangian particle mechanics (2017)**:
the full derivation from the discussion of the basic assumptions to
the details of the mathematical frameworks. It serves as a proof of concept and blueprint for the whole project. Published in Journal of Physics Communications.
