Model (abstract)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search For other uses, see Model An abstract model (or conceptual model) is a theoretical construct that represents something, with a set of variables and a set of logical and quantitative relationships between them. Models in this sense are constructed to enable reasoning within an idealized logical framework about these processes and are an important component of scientific theories Idealized here means that the model may make explicit assumptions that are known to be false (or incomplete) in some detail. Such assumptions may be justified on the grounds that they simplify the model while, at the same time, allowing the production of acceptably accurate solutions, as is illustrated below.

    Model checking bounded asynchrony
    In order to build models that mimic aspects of biological behavior we have developed a notion of concurrency called bounded asynchrony . As its name suggests, bounded asynchrony allows processes to move asynchronously however keeps the distance between them bounded so that the processes do not drift apart and make more or less the same number of moves. Currently, we model bounded asynchrony with an explicit scheduler that tells processes when they can move. However, the communications between processes is very limited. We would like to exploit this fact in order to reduce the number of possible interactions that have to be considered. This project starts from the theory of bounded asynchrony, analysis and suggestion of reductions, and finally implementaion of enumerative and symbolic model checking algorithms. Supervisor: Nir
    Translate USTL to monitors
    We have learned that Safe Temporal Logic corresponds to repeated reachability. In addition, we know that monitors are used to transform general safety requirements to invariants. In this project we combine these two. Our aim is to write a translator that receives a universal STL formula as input and produces a reactive module monitor as output. We first observe that the subset of STL for which this can be accomplished is universal STL (that is, we may use only universal path quantifiers). Given a formula, we use its dual (an existential STL formula) to guide the construction of the monitor.

    Model Theory
    First published Sat Nov 10, 2001; substantive revision Tue Jul 12, 2005 Model theory began with the study of formal languages and their interpretations, and of the kinds of classification that a particular formal language can make. Mainstream model theory is now a sophisticated branch of mathematics (see the entry on first-order model theory ). But in a broader sense, model theory is the study of the interpretation of any language, formal or natural, by means of set-theoretic structures, with Alfred Tarski's truth definition as a paradigm. In this broader sense, model theory meets philosophy at several points, for example in the theory of logical consequence and in the semantics of natural languages.
    1. Basic notions of model theory
    Sometimes we write or speak a sentence S that expresses nothing either true or false, because some crucial information is missing about what the words mean. If we go on to add this information, so that S comes to express a true or false statement, we are said to interpret S, and the added information is called an

    Studies in Logic and the Foundations of Mathematics, 73

    Since the second edition of this book (1977), Model Theory has changed radically, and is now concerned with fields such as classification (or stability) theory, nonstandard analysis, model-theoretic algebra, recursive model theory, abstract model theory, and model theories for a host of nonfirst order logics. Model theoretic methods have also had a major impact on set theory, recursion theory, and proof theory.
    This new edition has been updated to take account of these changes, while preserving its usefulness as a first textbook in model theory. Whole new sections have been added, as well as new exercises and references. A number of updates, improvements and corrections have been made to the main text. Contents Introduction.

    "Logic based approach to General systems Theory" was introduced in Serguei Krivov’s Ph.D. thesis and is published as: From Equations To Patterns: Logic Based Approach To General Systems - Theory Krivov et al. International Journal of General Systems, 2002 Volume 31, Number 2 pp 183-205 Objectives of Logic Based General Systems Theory Any mathematical formalism has a scope of relevant problems where it is especially efficient. At the same time, all formalisms have their limitations. The application of differential equations to system analysis constitutes the classical approach of systems science. However, at present the limitations of this approach are understood. Drogoul and Ferber (1992), and Hraber et al., (1996) present a comprehensive account of problems pertaining to the study of Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS) that could not be tackled by models based on integro-differential equations, but could be tackled by multiagent simulation methodology. The advent of new computational methods such as multiagent simulation brought in the demand for new formal methods of system analysis.

    Programme theme
    Model theory is a branch of mathematical logic dealing with abstract structures (models), historically with connections to other areas of mathematics. In the past decade, model theory has reached a new maturity, allowing for a strengthening of these connections and striking applications to diophantine geometry, analytic geometry and Lie theory, as well as strong interactions with group theory, representation theory of finite-dimensional algebras, and the study of the p-adics. The main objective of the semester will be to consolidate these advances by providing the required interdisciplinary collaborations. Model theory is traditionally divided into two parts pure and applied. Pure model theory studies abstract properties of first order theories, and derives structure theorems for their models. Applied model theory on the other hand studies concrete algebraic structures from a model-theoretic point of view, and uses results from pure model theory to get a better understanding of the structures in question, of the lattice of definable sets, and of various functorialities and uniformities of definition. By its very nature, applied model theory has strong connections to other branches of mathematics, and its results often have non-model-theoretic implications. A substantial knowledge of algebra, and nowadays of algebraic and analytic geometry, is required.

    The main theme of this year's international conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications was 'Application Profiles: Theory and Practice' [ ]. The conference was hosted by the Singapore National Library Board and held in the Intercontinental Hotel, which was across the road from the superb National Library building. Figure 1: Singapore National Library The main conference took place on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The keynote talks and the presentations of full papers took place in plenary sessions. Presentations of project report papers were held in parallel with meetings of the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) community groups and some special sessions. The first day, Monday, of the conference, which I did not attend, was a tutorial day, with the aim of bringing newcomers to Dublin Core (DC) 'up to speed'. On the Friday there were two half-day seminars. This report is based on the sessions that I attended. The papers, which were all peer-reviewed, are available via the DCMI Conference Proceedings Web site [ ], as well as being published in the printed Proceedings, and the presentations will be available via the conference Web site.

    Mental Models Website
    A Gentle Introduction
    The mental model theory of thinking and reasoning is the focus of this Web site. Mental models are representations in the mind of real or imaginary situations.
    Scientists sometimes use the term "mental model" as a synonym for "mental representation", but it has a narrower referent in the case of the theory of thinking and reasoning.
    Kenneth Craik
    The idea that people rely on mental models can be traced back to Kenneth Craik’s suggestion in 1943 that the mind constructs "small-scale models" of reality that it uses to anticipate events. Mental models can be constructed from perception, imagination, or the comprehension of discourse. They underlie visual images, but they can also be abstract, representing situations that cannot be visualised. Each mental model represents a possibility. Mental models are akin to architects' models or to physicists' diagrams in that their structure is analogous to the structure of the situation that they represent, unlike, say, the structure of logical forms used in formal rule theories. In this respect they are a little like pictures in the "picture" theory of language described by Ludwig Wittgenstein in 1922. Cognitive scientists have explored mental models and the mind generally. They have carried out an extensive programme of study on

    30. Institutions
    Institutions Abstract model theory for specification and programming, by Joseph Goguen and Rod Burstall, in Journal of the ACM, 39, No. 1, Jan.
    Institutions 1. Motivation The enormous and still growing diversity of logics used in computer science presents a formidable challenge. One approach to bringing some order to this chaos is to formalize the notion of "a logic" and then systematically study general properties of logics using this formalization, including the representation, implementation, and translation of logics. This is the purpose of the theory of institutions , as developed and applied in a literature that now has hundreds of papers. The original application of institutions defined powerful mechanisms for structuring theories over any logical system; this was applied in the module systems of languages in the OBJ family , including BOBJ, CafeOBJ, Maude, CASL, and OBJ3, each of which has a different logic, under the name "parameterized programming," and it was later extended to module systems for programming languages. The module systems of Ada, C++, Lotos, and ML were all influenced by these ideas, which are most nearly fully implemented in the so-called signatures, structures, and functors of SML. Institutions have also been applied to the semantics of databases and ontologies, e.g. for the semantic web. Here the main contribution of institutions is to formalize the notion of translation from one logic to another in such as way as to preserve truth, and to provide a number of basic results about such translations, such as when they preserve the modular structure of an ontology; see

    1 Introduction 2 A Bit of History
    3 Annotation Science Today Far from the situation 20 years ago, when annotations were added to data without much thought about their physical format or the repercussions of the choice of content categories, a "science" of annotation has now evolved that reflects the collective experience within the community. This new science includes the study and development of precise criteria for corpus design, appropriate statistics for measuring inter-annotator agreement and confidence, and means to define a set of annotation categories that reflect an underlying linguistic theory. It is also concerned with the design of an architecture for annotated resources that supports interoperability, and its implementation in systems and frameworks that support the creation and exploration of annotations.
    Work in these areas, together with several de facto approaches that have evolved from the "big ideas" discussed earlier, has led to a much clearer picture of potential standard ways to create, represent, and manipulate linguistically annotated data. Recognizing this, the International Standards Organization (ISO) recently formed a sub-committee on Language Resource Management (ISO TC37 SC4) to define standards for representing linguistic annotations and other resources, by incorporating de facto standards and "best practices" into a coherent whole. The core of this work is the definition of a Linguistic Annotation Framework (LAF) that is defined broadly enough to accommodate all types of linguistic annotations and provides means to represent precise and potentially complex linguistic information.

    The Preisach model is an abstract model of hysteresis, applicable to many kinds of physical phenomena. The Stoner-Wohlfarth model is a physical model of magnetic hysteresis in single-domain ferromagnets. If the Preisach model can be applied to magnets, it can predict the magnetization for an arbitrary sequence of fields. In the ``classical'' Preisach model the hysteresis is determined by the Preisach density mu (H a,H_b)

    A coherency result about expansions of the real line An old question about first-order topological structures is: If every set defined
    by a unary formula is a boolean combination of definable open sets, is the same
    true of every definable set (of any arity)? The question is open (as far as I know)
    even under the assumption that, in every elementarily equivalent structure, every set defined by a unary formula is a boolean combination of definable open sets. I will cast doubt on a positive answer (even under the stronger assumption) but show that a natural further strengthening of the hypotheses does yield a positive answer for expansions of the real line.

    "Strong theories and weight"

    It is not clear what weight (with respect to forking) should be in a non-simple theory, but as result of recent work by Shelah, Usvyatsov and Onshuus it is becoming increasingly clear what it means for a non-simple theory to have finite weight. I will call a theory strong if a certain constant from Shelah's book is countable. A simple theory is strong if and only if every type has finite weight. A theory is strongly dependent if and only if it is strong and dependent (i.e. does not have the independence property). As a corollary, a theory is strongly stable (i.e. stable and strongly dependent) if and only if it is stable and every type has finite weight. Examples for strong theories are superstable theories and o-minimal theories.

    "Cohomology of definable sets in o-minimal expansions of groups" (joint work with A. Fornasiero)
    We prove that the cohomology groups of a definably compact set over an o-minimal expansion of a group are finitely generated and invariant under elementary extensions and expansions of the language. We also study the cohomology of the intersection of a definable decreasing family of definably compact sets under the additional assumption that the o-minimal structure expands a field.

    Faculty of Science, Northern Territory University, Darwin, NT 0909, Australia Abstract. The possibility of the annihilation process occurring during scattering of a positron by an atomic target is taken into account by means of an absorption potential. The imaginary absorption potential is chosen so that its matrix element in the plane wave Born approximation correctly reproduces existing perturbation theory expressions for the annihilation cross section. The momentum space Lippmann-Schwinger equations for positron-hydrogen scattering with the imaginary absorption potential are solved for some simple close-coupling expansions at energies below the positronium formation threshold. The optical potential calculations agree with previous perturbation theory calculations. Print publication: Issue 21 (14 November 2000)

    The nineth one-day conference in the in the series Set theory and its neighbours , took place on Wednesday, 25th April 2001 at the London Mathematical Society building, De Morgan House, 57-58 Russell Square, London WC1. The speakers at the meeting were:
    • Russell Barker (Oxford), Robinson-type relations and the relationship between the k-size and cardinality of finite structures
        In this talk I will introduce the notions of L^k, the restriction of first order logic to k-variables, the k-size of a model and, two conjectures proposed by Anuj Dawar. Then I shall define define a special kind of relation which I shall call a Robinson-type relation and prove some results about these relations. I shall go on to give a translation between these relations and the set of L^3 theories and then use the earlier results to disprove Dawar's second conjecture.

    The focus of the second essay is the process of coordination and cooperation among autonomous units in human systems, in computer systems, and in hybrid organizations. We build an abstract model of the coordination process in which modules interact in an asynchronous fashion. The process of negotiation is described in the framework of asynchronous computation of fixed points. We use concepts from stochastic automata theory and game theory to formally model coordination in hierarchical and matrix organizational structures. Finally, a deterministic process of negotiation is designed in order to explore ideas related to the computational complexity of the process. In the third essay, we show how a Prolog or an expert system can be treated as a computational system in the framework of net theory. Using the Petri net formalism, we model Horn clauses, non-Horn clauses, and expert systems. Once the net representation is established, the collection of analysis techniques associated with net theory can be applied for serving requirements of knowledge engineering. Finally, we show that a major advantage of net theory is the possibility of analyzing parallelism in the inferential process. We specify a formal model that maps the computational model in its net representation to an appropriate architecture which is parallel in nature.

    In April this year (2007) a conference entitled “Model: Between Art and Science” took place at the Bloomfield Science Museum in Jerusalem. The conference was initiated jointly by the Science Museum and the History and Theory Department, “Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design Jerusalem”. The current issue of the Protocols is devoted to this conference and the discussion of models. The idea of the model enfolds profound philosophical issues. In what follows we shall concern with a few of them. Model and Cognitive Perception: Do models help us to understand the world? Is thinking in terms of models an integral part of perception? Can the world be perceived without constructing artificial models of it? In the 18 th century Kant claimed that there is a wide gap between reality as it is and reality as we perceive it, between ontology and epistemology. The perceived reality is a consequence of “modules” of perception. Is it possible that model is nothing more than a perception “module”? Can it be that there is a relation between our evolutionary development, and the existence of models as part of our perception?

    David Kolb's learning styles model and experiential learning theory (ELT)
    Having developed the model over many years prior, David Kolb published his learning styles model in 1984. The model gave rise to related terms such as Kolb's experiential learning theory (ELT), and Kolb's learning styles inventory (LSI). In his publications - notably his 1984 book 'Experiential Learning: Experience As The Source Of Learning And Development' Kolb acknowledges the early work on experiential learning by others in the 1900's, including Rogers, Jung, and Piaget. In turn, Kolb's learning styles model and experiential learning theory are today acknowledged by academics, teachers, managers and trainers as truly seminal works; fundamental concepts towards our understanding and explaining human learning behaviour, and towards helping others to learn. See also Gardner's Multiple Intelligences and VAK learnings styles models , which assist in understanding and using Kolb's learning styles concepts. In addition to personal business interests (Kolb is founder and chairman of Experience Based Learning Systems ), David Kolb is still (at the time I write this, 2005) Professor of Organizational Development at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, where he teaches and researches in the fields of learning and development, adult development, experiential learning, learning style, and notably 'learning focused institutional development in higher education'.

    Separating Models of Learning from Correlated and Uncorrelated Data
    Homin Lee
    Columbia University
    We consider a natural framework of learning from correlated data, in which successive examples used for learning are generated according to a random walk over the space of possible examples. Previous research has suggested that the Random Walk model is more powerful than comparable standard models of learning from independent examples, by exhibiting learning algorithms in the Random Walk framework that have no known counterparts in the standard model. We give strong evidence that the Random Walk model is indeed more powerful than the standard model, by showing that if any cryptographic one-way function exists (a universally held belief in public key cryptography), then there is a class of functions that can be learned efficiently in the Random Walk setting but not in the standard setting where all examples are independent. Joint work with Ariel Elbaz, Rocco Servedio, and Andrew Wan.

    Formal Modeling, Analysis, and Verification of Hybrid Systems
    The recent trend towards system integration and computer automation has lead to the emergence of very complex hybrid systems - dynamical systems that involve both discrete and continuous behavior and/or components. To date, the validation of hybrid systems has predominantly been accomplished by simulation testing. However, as systems get more complex, the exhaustive testing of all possible system behaviors becomes unrealistic and, subsequently, the confidence in such validation schemes is diminished. The safety-critical nature of numerous hybrid systems, such as automated transportation systems, has encouraged the formal modeling and validation through deductive reasoning. This approach not only forces the system designers to produce formal specifications of the system's behavior, but provides irrefutable proof that a system satisfies its safety requirements. When generating the formal specifications of a system's behavior, it is helpful to take advantage of modular decomposition and abstraction. The generation of specifications in a modular fashion emphasizes the component structure of the system and simplifies the modeling process by focusing attention to a single component at a time. The use of abstraction allows the system designers to ignore inessential system behavior, to use nondeterminism in a system's description, and to allow reasoning about the system behavior at a high level. Why is this research interesting?

    Dynamical Systems Theory: What in the World is it?
    Mike Hochman
    This page is meant to explain in a very general and non-technical way a few things about the subject field in which I work. It is not aimed at mathematicians, but rather at freshmen students, my friends, my mom (hi mom!). I've tried not to lie too much, though sometimes I've bent the truth a little in the interest of clarity (I hope, anyway). If you find something unclear I'd be glad to hear from you and I'll try to fix it. If you're still curious at the end, there are reference at the end for further reading.
    What is dynamics about?
    Abstract dynamics is the study of the time evolution of physical or artificial systems. Examples of such systems include:
    • The motion of planets, The weather, The motion of billiard balls on a billiard table, Sugar dissolving in a cup of coffee, The growth of crystals The stock market, The formation of traffic jams,
    • The behavior of the decimal digits of the square root of 2;
    and so on. Many areas of biology, physics, economics and applied mathematics involve a detailed analysis systems like these, based on the particular laws govorning their dynamics (which, in turn, are derived from a suitable theory Newtonian mechanics, mathematical economics, etc.). This is often a case-by-case effort, with each field and subfield using its own techniques and tricks (not to mention jargon).

    The mathematical theory of dynamics unifies these models conceptually in the notion of a

    Game Theory
    Game theory is a bag of analytical tools designed to help us understand the phenomena that we observe when decision-makers interact. The basic assumptions that underlie the theory are that decision-makers pursue well-defined exogenous objectives (they are rational ) and take into account their knowledge or expectations of other decision-makers' behavior (they reason strategically The models of game theory are highly abstract representations of classes of real-life situations. Their abstractness allows them to be used to study a wide range of phenomena. For example, the theory of Nash equilibrium (Chapter 2) has been used to study oligopolistic and political competition. The theory of mixed strategy equilibrium (Chapter 3) has been used to explain the distributions of tongue length in bees and tube length in flowers. The theory of repeated games (Chapter 8) has been used to illuminate social phenomena like threats and promises. The theory of the core (Chapter 13) reveals a sense in which the outcome of trading under a price system is stable in an economy that contains many agents. The boundary between pure and applied game theory is vague; some developments in the pure theory were motivated by issues that arose in applications. Nevertheless we believe that such a line can be drawn. Though we hope that this book appeals to those who are interested in applications, we stay almost entirely in the territory of "pure" theory. The art of applying an abstract model to a real-life situation should be the subject of another tome.
