# Ampliative

## Definitions

• Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
• a Ampliative (Logic) Enlarging a conception by adding to that which is already known or received. "“All bodies possess power of attraction” is an ampliative judgment; because we can think of bodies without thinking of attraction as one of their immediate primary attributes."
• ***
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
• ampliative Enlarging; increasing; synthetic. Applied— In logic, to a modal expression causing an ampliation (see ampliation, 3); thus, the word may in “Some man may be Antichrist” is an ampliative term. In the Kantian philosophy, to a judgment whose predicate is not contained in the definition of the subject: more commonly termed by Kant a synthetic judgment.

This is exactly what is not true of ampliative inference, and it is what has led some writers (e.g., [Morgan, 1998]) to deny that there is any such thing as a nonmonotonic logic.

The w*-representation  : B → L (G ) of B = L (H) is always an ampliation  (B ) = B ⊗ J, where J is an orthopro jector onto a subspace K1 ⊆ K, corresponding to the minimal dilation in G1 = H ⊗ K1 .

It is shown that although the spectrum of the analytic generator of a one– parameter group of isometries of a Banach space may be equal to C (cf [VD] and [ElZs]), a simple operation of ampliating the analytic generator onto its graph locates its spectrum in IR+ .
A remark on the spectrum of the analytic generator
We denote by Un the natural ampliation of U to H0 ⊗ T Φ where Un acts as U on the tensor product of H0 and the n-th copy of H and U acts as the identity of the other copies of H.

When the random-walk generator acts by ampliation and multiplication or conjugation by a unitary operator, necessary and suﬃcient conditions are given for the quantum stochastic cocycle which arises in the limit to be driven by an isometric, co-isometric or unitary process.
