## Notes on Forcing Axioms

**Author**: Stevo Todorcevic**Publisher:**World Scientific**ISBN:**9814571598**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**236**View:**3506

In the mathematical practice, the Baire category method is a tool for establishing the existence of a rich array of generic structures. However, in mathematics, the Baire category method is also behind a number of fundamental results such as the Open Mapping Theorem or the Banach–Steinhaus Boundedness Principle. This volume brings the Baire category method to another level of sophistication via the internal version of the set-theoretic forcing technique. It is the first systematic account of applications of the higher forcing axioms with the stress on the technique of building forcing notions rather than on the relationship between different forcing axioms or their consistency strengths. Contents:Baire Category Theorem and the Baire Category NumbersCoding Sets by the Real NumbersConsequences in Descriptive Set TheoryConsequences in Measure TheoryVariations on the Souslin HypothesisThe S-Spaces and the L-SpacesThe Side-condition MethodIdeal DichotomiesCoherent and Lipschitz TreesApplications to the S-Space Problem and the von Neumann ProblemBiorthogonal SystemsStructure of Compact SpacesRamsey Theory on OrdinalsFive Cofinal TypesFive Linear OrderingsCardinal Arithmetic and mmReflection PrinciplesAppendices:Basic NotionsPreserving Stationary SetsHistorical and Other Comments Readership: Graduate students and researchers in logic, set theory and related fields. Key Features:This is a first systematic exposition of the unified approach for building proper, semi-proper, and stationary preserving forcing notions through the method of using elementary submodels as side conditionsThe books starts from the classical applications of Martin's axioms and ends with some of the most sophisticated applications of the Proper Forcing Axioms. In this way, the reader is led into a natural process of understanding the combinatorics hidden behind the methodKeywords:Set Theory;Forcing Axioms

*On the Computable and Reverse Mathematics of Combinatorial Principles*

**Author**: Denis R Hirschfeldt**Publisher:**World Scientific**ISBN:**9814612634**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**232**View:**2804

This book is a brief and focused introduction to the reverse mathematics and computability theory of combinatorial principles, an area of research which has seen a particular surge of activity in the last few years. It provides an overview of some fundamental ideas and techniques, and enough context to make it possible for students with at least a basic knowledge of computability theory and proof theory to appreciate the exciting advances currently happening in the area, and perhaps make contributions of their own. It adopts a case-study approach, using the study of versions of Ramsey's Theorem (for colorings of tuples of natural numbers) and related principles as illustrations of various aspects of computability theoretic and reverse mathematical analysis. This book contains many exercises and open questions. Contents:Setting Off: An IntroductionGathering Our Tools: Basic Concepts and NotationFinding Our Path: König's Lemma and ComputabilityGauging Our Strength: Reverse MathematicsIn Defense of DisarrayAchieving Consensus: Ramsey's TheoremPreserving Our Power: ConservativityDrawing a Map: Five DiagramsExploring Our Surroundings: The World Below RT22Charging Ahead: Further TopicsLagniappe: A Proof of Liu's Theorem Readership: Graduates and researchers in mathematical logic. Key Features:This book assumes minimal background in mathematical logic and takes the reader all the way to current research in a highly active areaIt is the first detailed introduction to this particular approach to this area of researchThe combination of fully worked out arguments and exercises make this book well suited to self-study by graduate students and other researchers unfamiliar with the areaKeywords:Reverse Mathematics;Computability Theory;Computable Mathematics;Computable Combinatorics

## Combinatorial And Toric Homotopy: Introductory Lectures

**Author**: Darby Alastair,Grbic Jelena,Lu Zhi**Publisher:**World Scientific**ISBN:**9813226587**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**448**View:**6402

This volume consists of introductory lectures on the topics in the new and rapidly developing area of toric homotopy theory, and its applications to the current research in configuration spaces and braids, as well as to more applicable mathematics such as fr-codes and robot motion planning. The book starts intertwining homotopy theoretical and combinatorial ideas within the remits of toric topology and illustrates an attempt to classify in a combinatorial way polytopes known as fullerenes, which are important objects in quantum physics, quantum chemistry and nanotechnology. Toric homotopy theory is then introduced as a further development of toric topology, which describes properties of Davis–Januszkiewicz spaces, moment-angle complexes and their generalizations to polyhedral products. The book also displays the current research on configuration spaces, braids, the theory of limits over the category of presentations and the theory of fr-codes. As an application to robotics, the book surveys topological problems relevant to the motion planning problem of robotics and includes new results and constructions, which enrich the emerging area of topological robotics. The book is at research entry level addressing the core components in homotopy theory and their important applications in the sciences and thus suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

## Introduction to Neutrosophic Statistics

**Author**: Florentin Smarandache**Publisher:**Infinite Study**ISBN:**1599732742**Category:****Page:**N.A**View:**4698

Neutrosophic Statistics means statistical analysis of population or sample that has indeterminate (imprecise, ambiguous, vague, incomplete, unknown) data. For example, the population or sample size might not be exactly determinate because of some individuals that partially belong to the population or sample, and partially they do not belong, or individuals whose appurtenance is completely unknown. Also, there are population or sample individuals whose data could be indeterminate. In this book, we develop the 1995 notion of neutrosophic statistics. We present various practical examples. It is possible to define the neutrosophic statistics in many ways, because there are various types of indeterminacies, depending on the problem to solve.

## Grundlagen der Computerlinguistik

*Mensch-Maschine-Kommunikation in natürlicher Sprache*

**Author**: Roland R. Hausser**Publisher:**Springer-Verlag**ISBN:**3642573061**Category:**Computers**Page:**572**View:**545

Die zentrale Aufgabe einer zukunftsorientierten Computerlinguistik ist die Entwicklung kognitiver Maschinen, mit denen Menschen in ihrer jeweiligen Sprache frei reden können. Langfristig umfaßt diese Zielsetzung eine funktional ausgerichtete Theoriebildung, eine objektive Verifikationsmethode und eine Fülle praktischer Anwendungen. Für die natürlichsprachliche Kommunikation wird nicht nur Sprachverarbeitung, sondern auch nichtsprachliche Wahrnehmung und Handlung benötigt. Deshalb ist der Inhalt dieses Lehrbuchs als Sprachtheorie für die Konstruktion sprechender Roboter organisiert. Sein zentrales Thema ist die Kommunikationsmechanik natürlicher Sprachen - beim Sprecher und beim Hörer. Der Inhalt ist in folgende vier Teile mit je sechs Kapiteln gegliedert: Sprachtheorie; Formale Grammatik; Morphologie und Syntax; Semantik und Pragmatik. Insgesamt 772 Übungsaufgaben dienen der Verständniskontrolle und -vertiefung.
