Overarching Computation Model (OCM)

by   Henok Ghebrechristos, et al.

Existing models of computation, such as a Turing machine (hereafter, TM), do not consider the agent involved in interpreting the outcome of the computation. We argue that a TM, or any other computation model, has no significance if its output is not interpreted by some agent. Furthermore, we argue that including the interpreter in the model definition sheds light on some of the difficult problems faced in computation and mathematics. We provide an analytic process framework to address this limitation. The framework can be overlaid on existing concepts of computation to address many practical and philosophical concerns such as the P vs NP problem. In addition, we provide constructive proof for the P vs NP problem under the assumption that the class NP comprises of problems solvable by non-deterministic algorithms. We utilize the observation that deterministic computational procedures lack fundamental capacity to fully simulate their non-deterministic variant.
