The objective of this booklet is to enhance a generative thought of form that has houses we regard as primary to intelligence –(1) maximization of move: every time attainable, new constitution may be defined because the move of latest constitution; and (2) maximization of recoverability: the generative operations within the idea needs to enable maximal inferentiability from info units. we will exhibit that, if generativity satis?es those uncomplicated standards of - telligence, then it has a robust mathematical constitution and significant applicability to the computational disciplines. The requirement of intelligence is very very important within the gene- tion of advanced form. there are many theories of form that make the new release of advanced form unintelligible. although, our thought takes the wrong way: we're concerned about the conversion of complexity into understandability. during this, we are going to advance a mathematical idea of und- standability. the difficulty of understandability comes all the way down to the 2 easy rules of intelligence - maximization of move and maximization of recoverability. we will express tips to formulate those stipulations group-theoretically. (1) Ma- mization of move should be formulated when it comes to wreath items. Wreath items are teams during which there's an higher subgroup (which we are going to name a keep watch over crew) that transfers a decrease subgroup (which we'll name a ?ber staff) onto copies of itself. (2) maximization of recoverability is insured whilst the keep an eye on team is symmetry-breaking with recognize to the ?ber group.

The image shape is therefore given a completely generative description in which the projective process is merely the last phase. As a simple example, consider the projection of a square onto the retina, producing the projectively distorted square shown in Fig. 12. We have seen that the undistorted square is represented as the group R w Z4 . This group gives the generative structure of the square in the environment. 5 Human Perception R w Z4 w P GL(3, R). 6) Once again, notice that the operation used to add P GL(3, R) onto the lower group R w Z4 , is the control-nesting operation w ; which means that P GL(3, R) acts by transferring R w Z4 from the undistorted square in the environment onto the distorted square in the image3 .

This completely violates Klein’s principle that geometric objects are the invariants of the specified transformation group - which is the most famous principle of 20th century geometry and 3 The algebraic action of P GL(3, Ê) with respect to Ê w 4 will be defined via the action of P GL(3, Ê) on the projective plane represented intrinsically. The mathematical details will be given later. 18 1. Transfer physics. As will be seen, our generative theory of geometry is the direct opposite of Klein’s approach.

However, basic to these methods is symmetry. This is the modern approach that was created by Sophus Lie, and for which he formulated the machinery of Lie groups and Lie algebras. In fact, the use of symmetry to solve differential equations is very familiar to high-school students, as follows: Consider the first-order differential equation: dy dx = F (x). 11) where C is a constant of integration. Because of this constant, one knows that there are a whole set of solution curves, each one obtained by substituting a particular number for C.
