On the question "does there exist any fleshed out sub field of biology which have axiom systems from which experimental predictions can be worked out from?", we do have axioms for FOL elementary theory groups (Shoenfield, pg. 22) in which predictions (FOL proofs?) in a certain sub-areas of biology (e.g. genetic code) can be had, as alluded to in &...

Prelude Fwiw, I think the situation for the thread question and for the Mathematical Challenge Twenty-three is very bleak, hopeless: It's not possible even in theory (no pun intended) to formally theorize life processes in general — natural biological life on any planets, or ALIFE (Artificial Life, e.g. John Conway's Game of Life). First of all, there's ...

I think the question is too open to give a definitive answer, but several directiosn can be pointed out right away. Laws of biology are not rigorous Due to the inherent complexity of biological systems, the laws of biology are less susceptible to mathematical analysis than those in physics or chemistry. Firstly, this is because many of these laws are ...
