Boolean-valued model
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search In mathematical logic , a Boolean-valued model is a generalization of the ordinary Tarskian notion of structure or model , in which the truth values of propositions are not limited to "true" and "false", but take values in some fixed complete Boolean algebra . Boolean-valued models were introduced by Dana Scott Robert M. Solovay , and Petr Vopěnka in the in order to help understand Paul Cohen 's method of forcing
edit Definition
Fix a complete Boolean algebra B and a first-order language L , the latter consisting of a collection of constant symbols function symbols , and relation symbols . A Boolean-valued model for L then consists of a universe M , which is a set of elements (or names ), together with interpretations for the symbols. Specifically, the model must assign to each constant symbol of L an element of M , and to each n -ary function symbol f of L and each n ,...,a

About forcing (Definition) Forcing is the method used by Paul Cohen to prove the independence of the continuum hypothesis (CH). In fact, the method was used by Cohen to prove that CH could be violated. Adding a set to a model of set theory via forcing is similar to adjoining a new element to a field . Suppose we have a field , and we want to add to this field an element such . We see that we cannot simply drop a new in , since then we are not guaranteed that we still have a field. Neither can we simply assume that already has such an element. The standard way of doing this is to start by adjoining a generic indeterminate , and impose a constraint on , saying that . What we do is take the quotient , and make a field out of it by taking the quotient field . We then obtain , where is the equivalence class of in the quotient. The general case of this is the theorem of

"My space"
Most my understanding of mathematics, I owe it to the 'Youth School of Mathematics', a Soviet voluntary system of math study groups for gifted secondary school children. The system was really excellent in the 60-th. The instructors were enthusiastic university students. One of such groups in Leningrad, contained Kharlamov Kislyakov Reyman and me, was instructed by Kruglov and Lifschitz (many thanks to both). There, I got used to the perplexity of a mathematician facing a problem, to the ordinary miracle of overcoming the perplexity, and to the ordinary sorrow when the miracle does not come. Kruglov taught mathematical analysis (from the definition of a metric space till spectral theory of operators in Hilbert spaces), while Lifschitz taught logic. (Is logic relevant to Banach spaces? Wait a little!) While being a pupil in the 'youth school of math' (and a standard secondary school, of course), I have discovered for myself the (well-known to specialists long ago) fact that spaces l p are non-isomorphic to each other.

03E: Set theory
Naive set theory considers elementary properties of the union and intersection operators Venn diagrams, the DeMorgan laws, elementary counting techniques such as the inclusion-exclusion principle, partially ordered sets, and so on. This is perhaps as much of set theory as the typical mathematician uses. Indeed, one may "construct" the natural numbers, real numbers, and so on in this framework. However, situations such as Russell's paradox show that some care must be taken to define what, precisely, is a set. However, results in mathematical logic imply it is impossible to determine whether or not these axioms are consistent using only proofs expressed in this language. Assuming they are indeed consistent, there are also statements whose truth or falsity cannot be determined from them. These statements (or their negations!) can be taken as axioms for set theory as well. For example, Cohen's technique of forcing showed that the Axiom of Choice is independent of the other axioms of ZF. (That axiom states that for every collection of nonempty sets, there is a set containing one element from each set in the collection.) This axiom is equivalent to a number of other statements (e.g. Zorn's Lemma) whose assumption allows the proof of surprising even paradoxical results such as the Banach-Tarski sphere decomposition. Thus, some authors are careful to distinguish results which depend on this or other non-ZF axioms; most assume it (that is, they work in ZFC Set Theory).

... to restore theology to the mainstream of science
An essay on physical theology
Essay submitted to the Dubai Strategy Forum writing competition, October 2002.
Physics Physical Theology ... An Initiative
1. Summary
Experience shows that driving with closed eyes invites disaster. Reliable visual knowledge is essential to success in traffic space. More generally, we need reliable knowledge to navigate in the space of life. Our need to see one another and our planetary and cosmic environment is daily becoming more obvious. It seems clear that we need globalisation of knowledge to arrive at a common solution to our global problems. In every human tradition that I know of, theology, in one form or another, provides the primary guiding light. It shows a big picture in which we can all see where we fit in. This fit provides a guide to action. Since we evolved in Africa, we may have developed as many theologies as we have languages. A global theology must be one that is common to all languages. To do this for theology, we follow the path of science, which adjoins special technical language to natural language to express its concepts. The plan here is to to use the technical languages of mathematics and physics to illustrate a network model of the physical world. Then we move beyond physics to the wider space of human spirit. Our move is made possible by the properties of networks. Networks can exist at any scale; networks can be made of networks and be part of other networks. One point may be part of many networks. Networks can imitate one another. On consideration the network model seems as versatile and intuitive as set theory.

Finite spaces!
a finite space that is weak homotopic to a point but not contractible
in a paper from 2006, answering one of the main questions I was investigating. I then decided that I don't want to look at any more of what's been done already (at least not anytime soon) and just try to discover more for myself. I found a proof that maps between finite spaces are homotopic iff they are homotopic via a homotopy that only changes at finitely many times (by using spaces of maps between finite spaces to reduce it to the case that the domain is a point).
A question: what method would you people recommend for putting pictures in LaTeX? My pictures will just be simple graphs or drawings of small simplicial complexes.
Some questions I'm currently thinking about:
Is there some characterization of what simplicial complexes are order complexes? It's not hard to reduce this to the question of what graphs are the comparability graph of a poset, but I still have no idea how to answer that.

Forcing method
A special method for constructing models of axiomatic set theory . It was proposed by P.J. Cohen in to prove the compatibility of the negation of the continuum hypothesis . The forcing method was subsequently simplified and modernized . In particular, it was found that the method was related to the theory of Boolean-valued models (cf. Boolean-valued model and Kripke models The central concept of the forcing method is the forcing relation f The definition of the forcing relation is preceded by the specification of a language and a partially ordered set of forcing conditions with order relation . The language may contain variables and constants of different sorts (or types). The construction of the model of ZF proposed by Cohen, in which the continuum hypothesis is violated, proceeds as follows. A set is called transitive if Let be a denumerable transitive set which is a model of ZF, and let be an ordinal number (in the sense of von Neumann), i.e. . Let be an arbitrary set (possibly ), where

23. Forcing For Dummies
There do exist alternative approaches to Forcing, e.g., using Booleanvalued models. This is somewhat more intuitive because the idea that some statements
< on P (with "1" being the unique maximal element) and to require G to be a *filter*, i.e., for G to have the following two properties: 1. If r is in G and r <= p then p is also in G. 2. For every p and q in G there exists r in G such that r <= p and r <= q. The first of these conditions ensures that knowing that some element r is in G tells us not only that r is in G but that every element >= r is also in G. Thus, r is "more informative" than p if r with x in k x omega and y in 2, hoping that G can be chosen to be a function from k x omega to 2. However, this does not quite work because the members of a function are ordered pairs, and no particular ordered pair is "more informative" about the function than any other ordered pair. On the other hand, large *subsets* of ordered pairs carry more information than smaller subsets, so this is a hint that we should "pass to the powerset." More precisely, let P be the set of all "finite partial functions" from k x omega into 2, i.e., functions from a finite subset of k x omega into 2. Partially order these functions by reverse inclusion, i.e., f

A Boolean algebra (BA) is a set A A such that the following laws hold: commutative and associative laws for addition and multiplication, distributive laws both for multiplication over addition and for addition over multiplication, and the following special laws:
These laws are better understood in terms of the basic example of a BA, consisting of a collection A of subsets of a set X closed under the operations of union, intersection, complementation with respect to X X x y if and only if x y y X to have just one element. An important elementary result is that an equation holds in all BAs if and only if it holds in the two-element BA. Next, we define x y x y y x ). Then

My research interests:
I am currently thinking about the nature and normative ground of evaluative coherence, that is, what it is for one's desires, attitudes, and beliefs about the good to fit together, and why it seems they ought to. Some theorists of agency and moral epistemologists have argued that there is a kind of internal pressure toward such coherence, that it is ultimately grounded in rationality, or logical consistency, or some epistemological virtue. But I claim it is none of these; the normative status of evaluative coherence is that it is a source of overridable reasons whose force is grounded in moral and pragmatic value. What this means is that while it may be in one's best interest to be evaluatively coherent, it may not be, and that what is desirable about evaluative coherence rests in moral goods such as fairness, and pragmatic goods such as being more likely to have one's desires satisfied. Some drafts of work in progress on this topic are available on request.

What does that mean? To start with, what is second order set theory?
My guess is that it's one in which axiom schemata are replaced with
single axioms with a "for all formulae phi" quantifier. But what would
be a second order formulation of a classes-and-sets theory? One with
quantifiers binding classes? Is the set theory in the appendix of
Kelley's topology text one of those?

The aim of the first and second editions was to provide a systematic and adequately motivated exposition of the theory of Boolean-valued models as developed by Scott and Solovay in the 1960s, deriving along the way the central set theoretic independence proofs of Cohen and others in the particularly elegant form that the Boolean-valued approach enables them to assume. In this edition, the background material has been augmented to include an introduction to Heyting algebras. It includes chapters on Boolean-valued analysis and Heyting-algebra-valued models of intuitionistic set theory.

BHK Interpretation
October 12th, 2007 by Walt The BHK interpretation of intuitionistic logic articulates the sense in which intuitionistic logic captures constructive reasoning. Statements that involve logical connectives are interpreted as constructions that transform proofs of simpler statements into proofs of more complicated statements. The interpretation requires a primitive notion of what it means to give a construction function that turn objects and proofs into another proof. The way this issue is handled in the realizability interpretation (and therefore the effective topos) is by identifying the constructions as those functions that are provably total in Heyting arithmetic , the intuitionistic analogue of Peano arithmetic.

...a form of reasoning which transcends reasoning... S. Bochner Gaisi Takeuti Scott Solovay's invented similar models at the same time. That is how the question of the title receives an answer in zero approximation. However, it would be premature to finish at this stage. It stands to reason to discuss in more detail the following three questions. 1. Why should we know anything at all about Boolean valued analysis? Curiosity often leads us in science, and oftener we do what we can. However we appreciate that which makes us wiser. Boolean valued analysis has this value, expanding the limits of our knowledge and taking off blinds from the eyes of the perfect mathematician, mathematician par excellence . To substantiate this thesis is the main target of my talk. 2. What need the working mathematician know this for? 3. What do the Boolean valued models yield? The essential and technical parts of this talky are devoted to answering the question. We will focus on the general methods independent of the subtle intrinsic properties of the initial complete Boolean algebra. These methods are simple, visual, and easy to apply. Therefore they may be useful for the working mathematician. Moreover, we must always keep in mind that the Boolean valued models were invented in order to simplify the exposition of Cohen's forcing. Mathematics is impossible without proof.

Partial order interpretation
In it, a forcing relation sentence psi," or just, "p forces psi." Conditions are elements in a partially ordered set and this partial order is refered to as a notion of forcing . The forcing relation must satisfy several properties which guarantee that every condition forces every axiom of ZFC . Furthermore the collection of sentences forced by a generic set of conditions is consistent . Thus one can prove a statement is consistent with ZFC by selecting a notion of forcing where every generic set of conditions force the statement in question.

If you're going to adopt the attitude that there isn't one, which is
up to you, you still are left with the fact that as far as ZF is
concerned, there exists a unique set R of real numbers. So if you're
in the middle of doing some reasoning inside ZF, your reasoning should
respect that. If you are not in the middle of doing some reasoning
based on ZF, then a few words about what you are doing instead might be in order. I think trying to think of the reals as not being unique can easily lead to confusion if you don't carefully partition such beliefs off from the mathematics one is trying to do, if it's in a system that

E-mail: ABSTRACT: This tutorial concentrates on links between traditional (infinitary) model theory and complexity theory. We begin with an overview of the `classical' connection between complexity theory and finite model theory, giving quickly the basic results of descriptive complexity theory. /We then discuss several ways of generalizing this to take account a fixed infinite background structure. We will start by giving the basics of complexity theory parameterized by a model (algebraic complexity over an arbitrary structure). We then cover results characterizing first-order theories of models via the complexity of query problems (embedded finite model theory). Finally, time permitting, we will look at abstractions of descriptive complexity theory to take into account a background structure. Stevo Todorcevic Set-Theoretic Methods in Ramsey Theory

Specialty Definition: Forcing (mathematics)
(From Wikipedia , the free Encyclopedia) Forcing is a technique in set theory, invented by Paul Cohen. It was first used to prove independence of the continuum hypothesis from the axioms of set theory, and is nowadays one of the basic techniques in the field. In it, a forcing relation between "conditions" and statements of set theory is considered. Each "condition" is a finite piece of information - the idea is that only finite pieces are relevant for consistency, since by the compactness theorem a theory is satisfiable if and only if every finite subset of its axioms is satisfiable. Then, we can pick an infinite set of consistent conditions to extend our model. Thus, assuming consistency of set theory, we prove consistency of the theory extended with this infinite set. Perhaps more clearly, the method can be explained in terms of Boolean-valued models. In it, any statement is assigned a truth value from some infinite Boolean algebra, rather than just a true/false value. Then an ultrafilter is picked in this Boolean algebra, which assigns values true/false to statements of our theory. The point is that the resulting theory has a model which contains this ultrafilter, which can be understood as a model obtained by extending the old one with this ultrafilter. By picking a Boolean-valued model in appropriate way, we can get a model that has the desired property. In it, only statements which must be true (are "forced" to be true) will be true, in a sense (since it has this extension/minimality property).

EventLocator Method for NDSolve
It is often useful to be able to detect and precisely locate a change in a differential system. For example, with the detection of a singularity or state change, the appropriate action can be taken, such as restarting the integration. An event for a differential system: is a point along the solution at which a real-valued event function is zero: It is also possible to consider Boolean-valued event functions, in which case the event occurs when the function changes from True to False or vice versa. The EventLocator method which is built into NDSolve works effectively as a controller method; it handles checking for events and taking the appropriate action, but the integration of the differential system is otherwise left completely to an underlying method. In this section, examples are given to demonstrate the basic use of the
