A Brief Introduction to N-universes

Preprint.  I present in this paper the basic elements of the n-universes, from an essentially pragmatic standpoint, i.e. by describing accurately the step-by-step process which leads to the modelling of a thought experiment. A Brief Introduction to N-universes Paul Franceschi The n-universes are a methodological tool whose scope proves to be general and which find […]

I describe first how n-universes can be used as an extension of the probability spaces used in probability theory. […]
