Abstract:

This has been a three-part project 1 enhancing generalized discovery tools on our existing computer platform, 2 building specialized discovery tools, and 3 applying generalized and specialized discovery tools to specific materialsrelated projects including protein studies and crystallography. During the work, we have had the opportunity to incorporate some of out--other activities, including studies we have done in biomedical fields using our discovery system. We have also folded in some of our external work in design. Portions of this other work are included in this report because it serves to illustrate key points we wish to make. This report includes portions of contributions made by our consultants, W.B. Dress and A. G. Jackson. We begin our report with a review of the philosophical aspects of what we call computational theory formation. We then present the computer tool that has been extended as part of this work, the goal of which is to address the issues brought up in the first section. Finally, the three different applications mentioned above are introduced.
