1) The Linda who skipped the logic classes
publication date - Mar 02, 2021
publication description - OSF Preprints
The letter points to a logical mistake found in “The conjunction fallacy in probability judgment” published by Tversky and Kahneman. Currently, at least 5,100 research papers reference this work, and an entire field of associated studies has been created based on the paper. These works assume the correctness of the original publication and reproduce the error without due critical analysis.

2) Entropy-based model for cognitive systems
publication date - Feb 28, 2021
publication description - OSF Preprints
The work presented here looks at information as an independent entity. Without any involvement of the mind, information forms patterns and regularities which manifest themselves during cognitive experiments. Information can arrange itself within a multidimensional space and depending on the number of dimensions exhibit different characteristics. It is shown here that information analysis allows for the reproduction of some elementary cognitive processes like short- and long-term memory, chunking, long term memory categories, the formation of convictions, decision-making processes and mechanisms responsible for the formation of understanding. It is therefore argued here that some cognitive experiments do not relate to the workings of a subject’s mind but instead relate to the properties of information itself.

3) Probability Field in Chaotic Intra-Entropic Interactions
publication date - Feb 27, 2021
publication description - OSF Preprints
In the article, it is shown that the concept of mass can be arrived at through a consideration of two probability fields interacting with each other. The interaction is subject to discontinuities. These, in turn, when being traversed, pose a resistance, which is perceived as mass. Thus, mass is a manifestation of discontinuity in the probability field. The approach allows for the retrieval of masses of elementary particles, providing high agreement with the experimental data. It also explains the longevity of the proton and explains why other heavy particles are short-lived. Moreover, the model presented in the paper sheds light on the nature of weak interactions.

4) Strange attractor in the Auckland commercial property market
publication date - May 14, 2020
publication description - Journal of Property Investment & Finance
The purpose of this study is to provide a chaos theory-based framework, which can be used to model commercial property market dynamics. The paper is presented in two parts. In the first, rigorous mathematical reasoning is entertained, so to derive an attractor describing a set of feedback formulae. In the second part, the attractor definition is used to model the Auckland commercial office market. The model is exposed through a set of seven scenarios allowing for analysis of the market behaviour under various exogenously imposed conditions.

5) Characteristic points of Auckland commercial property cycles
publication date - Aug 5, 2019
publication description - Journal of Property Investment & Finance
The purpose of this paper is to expand our understanding of processes governing commercial property cycles, and to provide tools, which enable identification of property cycles’ turning points’ location.

6) A new model for Auckland commercial property yields
publication date - Feb 4, 2019
publication description - Journal of Property Investment & Finance
Based on the equations used to describe real gases in physics, the commercial property yields are expressed through a model, as a product of two terms. The first term estimates the influence of the income change and investment on yields. The second estimates the yield variation as a function of property size.

publication date - Apr 3, 2018
publication description - Journal of Property Investment & Finance
The purpose of this paper is to extend the studies of commercial property cycles by providing a cross-field approach to property markets modelling.
