Modern algebra, which not long ago seemed to be a science divorced from real life, now has numerous applications. Many fine algebraic structures are endowed with meaningful contents. Now and then practice suggests new and unexpected structures enriching algebra. This does not mean that algebra has become merely a tool for applications. Quite the contrary, it significantly benefits from the new connections. The present book is devoted to some algebraic aspects of the theory of databases. It consists of three parts. The first part contains information about universal algebra, algebraic logic is the subject of the second part, and the third one deals with databases. The algebraic material of the flI'St two parts serves the common purpose of applying algebra to databases. The book is intended for use by mathematicians, and mainly by algebraists, who realize the necessity to unite theory and practice. It is also addressed to programmers, engineers and all potential users of mathematics who want to construct their models with the help of algebra and logic. Nowadays, the majority of professional mathematicians work in close cooperation with representatives of applied sciences and even industrial technology. It is neces sary to develop an ability to see mathematics in different particular situations. One of the tasks of this book is to promote the acquisition of such skills.

Formal Theories of Information

From Shannon to Semantic Information Theory and General Concepts of Information

This book presents the scientific outcome of a joint effort of the computer science departments of the universities of Berne, Fribourg and Neuchâtel. Within an initiative devoted to "Information and Knowledge", these research groups collaborated over several years on issues of logic, probability, inference, and deduction. The goal of this volume is to examine whether there is any common ground between the different approaches to the concept of information. The structure of this book could be represented by a circular model, with an innermost syntactical circle, comprising statistical and algorithmic approaches; a second, larger circle, the semantical one, in which "meaning" enters the stage; and finally an outermost circle, the pragmatic one, casting light on real-life logical reasoning. These articles are complemented by two philosophical contributions exploring the wide conceptual field as well as taking stock of the articles on the various formal theories of information.

Cylindric-like Algebras and Algebraic Logic

Algebraic logic is a subject in the interface between logic, algebra and geometry, it has strong connections with category theory and combinatorics. Tarski’s quest for finding structure in logic leads to cylindric-like algebras as studied in this book, they are among the main players in Tarskian algebraic logic. Cylindric algebra theory can be viewed in many ways: as an algebraic form of definability theory, as a study of higher-dimensional relations, as an enrichment of Boolean Algebra theory, or, as logic in geometric form (“cylindric” in the name refers to geometric aspects). Cylindric-like algebras have a wide range of applications, in, e.g., natural language theory, data-base theory, stochastics, and even in relativity theory. The present volume, consisting of 18 survey papers, intends to give an overview of the main achievements and new research directions in the past 30 years, since the publication of the Henkin-Monk-Tarski monographs. It is dedicated to the memory of Leon Henkin.​

This volume is not restricted to papers presented at the 1988 Colloquium, but instead aims to provide the reader with a (relatively) coherent reading on Algebraic Logic, with an emphasis on current research. To help the non-specialist reader, the book contains an introduction to cylindric and relation algebras by Roger D. Maddux and an introduction to Boolean Algebras by Bjarni Joacute;nsson.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 13th International Symposium Fundamentals of Computation Theory, FCT 2001, as well as of the International Workshop on Efficient Algorithms, WEA 2001, held in Riga, Latvia, in August 2001. The 28 revised full FCT papers and 15 short papers presented together with six invited contributions and 8 revised full WEA papers as well as three invited WEA contributions have been carefully reviewed and selected. Among the topics addressed are a broad variety of topics from theoretical computer science, algorithmics and programming theory. The WEA papers deal with graph and network algorithms, flow and routing problems, scheduling and approximation algorithms, etc.

Lattice Functions and Equations

Category: Computers

Page: 435

Lattice (Boolean) functions are algebraic functions defined over an arbitrary lattice (Boolean algebra), while lattice (Boolean) equations are equations expressed in terms of lattice (Boolean) functions. This self-contained monograph surveys recent developments of Boolean functions and equations, as well as lattice functions and equations in more general classes of lattices; a special attention is paid to consistency conditions and reproductive general solutions. The contents include: - equational compactness in semilattices and Boolean algebras; - the theory of Post functions and equations (which is very close to that of Boolean functions and equations); - a revision of Boolean fundamentals; - closure operators on Boolean functions; - the decomposition of Boolean functions; - quadratic truth equations; - Boolean differential calculus; - Boolean geometry and other topics. There is also a chapter on equations in a very general sense. Applications refer to graph theory, automata theory, synthesis of circuits, fault detection, databases, marketing and others.
