Axiomatic Method and Category Theory: 364 (Synthese Library) by Andrei Rodin

By Andrei Rodin

This quantity explores the numerous diversified meanings of the thought of the axiomatic approach, delivering an insightful old and philosophical dialogue approximately how those notions replaced over the millennia.

The writer, a widely known thinker and historian of arithmetic, first examines Euclid, who's thought of the daddy of the axiomatic approach, prior to relocating onto Hilbert and Lawvere. He then offers a deep textual research of every author and describes how their principles are assorted or even how their principles improved over the years. subsequent, the ebook explores classification concept and info the way it has revolutionized the suggestion of the axiomatic technique. It considers the query of identity/equality in arithmetic in addition to examines the got theories of mathematical structuralism. within the end, Rodin presents a hypothetical New Axiomatic process, which establishes nearer relationships among arithmetic and physics.

Lawvere's axiomatization of topos thought and Voevodsky's axiomatization of upper homotopy thought exemplify a brand new approach of axiomatic concept development, which works past the classical Hilbert-style Axiomatic approach. the recent idea of Axiomatic process that emerges in specific good judgment opens new chances for utilizing this technique in physics and different usual sciences.

This quantity bargains readers a coherent examine the prior, current and expected way forward for the Axiomatic strategy.

Generalized Concavity in Fuzzy Optimization and Decision Analysis (International Series in Operations Research & Management Science)

Convexity of units in linear areas, and concavity and convexity of capabilities, lie on the root of lovely theoretical effects that are whilst tremendous invaluable within the research and answer of optimization difficulties, together with difficulties of both unmarried goal or a number of targets. now not all of those effects depend inevitably on convexity and concavity; a number of the effects can ensure that every one neighborhood optimal is additionally an international optimal, giving those tools broader software to a much broader category of difficulties.
