of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign) present four lectures for a graduate logic course introducing the model theory of fields with an emphasis on connections to stability theory.
of Michigan) covers modern mathematical logic from propositional, first-order and infinitary logic and Godel's incompleteness theorems, leading to introductions to set theory, model theory and recursion (computability) theory.
Those lecture series have been boiled down to four refereed essays on countable models and the theory of Boral equivalence relations, model theory of difference fields, some computability-theoretic aspects of reals and randomness, and weak fragments of Peano arithmetic.
The main themes of the 14 tutorials and papers are proof theory and logical foundations of computer science, set theory, model theory, computability and complexity theory, the history of 20th-century logic, philosophy, and applications of logic to cognitive sciences.
Material is arranged in chapters on predicate logic, axiomatic set theory, recursion theory and computability, Godel's incompleteness theorems, model theory, contemporary set theory, nonstandard analysis, and constructive mathematics.
Drawing on applied statistics, mathematical statistics, linear model theory, regression, time series and stochastic processes, the authors, practicing statisticians, examine theories and methods for spatial data analysis.
Topics include the unification of classical and quantum probability theories, EPR-Bohm and the original EPR experiments, Bell's inequality, interpretations of its violation and loopholes, simulation of EPR-Bohm co-relations in the local realistic approach, nonlocality, contextual probabilistic models, subjective probability and quantum information, quantum logic, and results of recent experiments in quantum information, model theory, discrete time, dynamics, and the philosophic foundations of probability.
During the outgoing phase of the project, at the Mathematics Department at the City College of the City University of New York, the applicant will perform an in-depth study of profinite semigroups and their applications in formal language theory, through the lens of Stone duality and finite model theory.
Is the "role model theory," for example, a compelling argument for placing assigning a large number of Black teachers in a school with a predominantly Black student population?
Without it, the Standard Model theory that combines all the fundamental forces and particles of the Universe would have fallen down.
In the first section, they offer large-scale syntheses and theory, considering intelligence and rationality and the relationship to reasoning and judgment; gist theory; the adaptation of mental model theory to development; and developmental patterns of heuristic responding, with an emphasis on the role of developmental inversions.
It begins from an inferentialist, and particularly bilateralist, theory of meaning--one which takes meaning to be constituted by assertibility and deniability conditions--and shows how the usual multiple-conclusion sequent calculus for classical logic can be given an inferentialist motivation, leaving classical model theory as of only derivative importance.
