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

Basic information on set theory, and my research in particular
My research involves set theory and related fields, scuh as set-theoretic topology and measure theory, set-theoretic model theory and mathematical logic in general. Set theory as a discipline of mathematical logic is deeply connected with other branches of mathematics, and such connections are what I mean by applications. Typical fields in which set theory has been applied are set-theoretic topology, Boolean algebras, measure theory, group theory, to mention only a few. This ever-evolving interaction between set-theory per se and its applications, is a two-way relationship: discovering new set-theoretic properties has often been inspired by a question from another field of mathematics, and vice versa, a new theory inside of set theory has often been tested by finding applications of that theory to questions from the outside. Among the various set-theoretic disciplines, I have been involved with proper forcing, pcf, set-theoretic topology and measure theory, set-theoretic model theory, infinite combinatorics and large cardinals forcing. There is, of course, much more to set theory than fits on this page, and more than I know about. This is a field which will not leave disappointed those who look for a continuous challenge and beauty. My immediate goals in the subject are to work on the topic of cardinal spectra in its various instances, both combinatorial and forcingwise, as well as to continue work on universality, a subject which have interested me for a while. And of course, to continue learning.

This is a specification of a model-theoretic semantics for RDF and RDFS, and some basic results on entailment. It does not cover reification or special meanings associated with the use of RDF containers. This document was written with the intention of providing a precise semantic theory for RDF and RDFS, and to sharpen the notions of consequence and inference in RDF. It reflects the current understanding of the RDF Core working group at the time of writing. In some particulars this differs from the account given in Resource Description Framework (RDF) Model and Syntax Specification , and these exceptions are noted.

Categoricity and model completeness
Ever since Lindstom's `little' theorem: a -axiomatizable theory which is categorical in some infinite cardinality is model complete, there have been questions about weaker conditions on an -categorical theories that imply it is model complete. We will review some of the history of this problem and report the latest result: Theorem (Baldwin-Holland). The finite rank expansions of an algebraically closed field obtained by the Hrushovski construction are model complete. Moreover, this holds for such expansions of any strongly minimal set which admits `exactly k -independent formulas.

Countable universal graphs with forbidden subgraphs: a decision problem
Given a finite set C of finite connected graphs, which we declare to be "forbidden graphs," we say that a graph is C -free if it contains no subgraph isomorphic to one in the set C . We ask whether there is a countable C -free graph in which all countable C -free graphs embed. This is then a "countable universal graph with (specified) forbidden subgraphs". In the graph theoretic literature one finds various cases treated, notably the case of a single forbidden graph, where results of some substantial generality have been achieved. It is reasonable to ask whether the problem as formulated here can be solved in full generality. In particular one may ask whether the problem, as a whole, is decidable or not. Both practical experience and a model theoretic analysis suggest that this problem is intimately connected with one whose combinatorial content is considerably clearer: the local finiteness of a closure operation associated with the set

SCL is a simplified version of the Common Logic project , which in turn is a proposal to define a 'standard' uniform notation for first-order logic suitable for use as a common notation for a variety of ontology efforts, to facilitate information exchange and interoperability. CL began as an outgrowth of the now somewhat venerable KIF effort, differing from KIF in several respects: a simplified syntax; a more sophisticated semantics; and, by differentiating abstract syntax from concrete syntaxes, providing for a wider range of interoperabilty by linking a variety of existing surface syntactic standards, in particular Concept Graphs. SCL attempts to retain these advantages of CL while being somewhat less ambitious, and is consciously intended to also provide a logical notation oriented towards the needs of the emerging Semantic Web effort. In many ways, SCL is nearer in scope to the original KIF. The 'core' of SCL is presented as an abstract syntax of a rather general logical language with an attached model theory. This core provides the basis for several other aspects of the proposal. Special cases of the language, which roughly correspond to several known use cases of familiar logical notations, are defined by restricting the syntax in various ways. Syntactically defined sublanguages are referred to as

The Department of Pure Mathematics forms part of the School of Mathematics, the other departments being those of Applied Mathematical Studies and Statistics. The department has 20 academic staff, as well as a number of postdoctoral research fellows and research assistants. The Department was rated 5 in both of the last two Research Assessment Exercises. There are usually about 30 research students. As well as the weekly seminars which are mentioned below, there is a less specialised departmental Colloquium which meets once or twice a term. There is also a graduate lecture course each year in each of Mathematical Logic, Algebra, Analysis and Differential Geometry. The aim of the Department of Pure Mathematics at Leeds for many years has been to maintain and develop research groups of international standing in four of the most vital and central areas of mathematics: mathematical logic, algebra, analysis and differential geometry. In each of these subjects there is plenty of lively research activity at Leeds. The department is one of the largest and most active centres for pure mathematics research in the UK, and is an ideal place in which to obtain postgraduate training.

ABSTRACT Model-theoretic semantics is a formal account of the interpretations of legitimate expressions of a language. It is increasingly being used to provide Web markup languages with well-defined semantics. But a discussion of its roles and limitations for the Semantic Web has not yet received a coherent and detailed treatment. This paper takes the first steps towards such a treatment. The major result is an introductory explication of key ideas that are usually only implicit in existing accounts of semantics for the Web. References to more detailed accounts of these ideas are also provided. The benefit of this explication is increased awareness among Web users of some important issues inherent in using model-theoretic semantics for Web markup languages.

4. The Kreisel argument and reflection principles It is sometimes argued that this expressive limitation is not a serious problem for our account of logical consequence, at least, since we can prove completeness for s, i.e. logical consequence set-theoretically defined. Hence if X S A, X A and so, granted the intuitive soundness of the system, we know that X k A: A really does follow from X. In the converse direction we can argue that any set-theoretic interpretation is a genuine interpretation, so that if there is no counterexample to X entails A then, in particular, there is no set-theoretic counterexample, that is if X A then X s A. Hence putting the two together, X A iff X s A, and we can explain the murky k in terms of the well-understood s.(10)

If variables running through the objects of type are denoted by then type-theoretical comprehension axioms have the form where is a formula relative to the system with free variables , and the type of the variable must belong (this is the main point of type-theoretic systems) to a higher level in the hierarchy of types than the types .

Russell in connection with his discovery of a contradiction in set theory. Putting a set and its elements at different levels leads to a point of view regarding antinomies (cf. Antinomy ) according to which the appearance of a contradiction is explained by the non-predicative nature of some set-theoretical definitions. Here a definition of some object is called non-predicative if the object itself takes part in the definition, or, what amounts to the same thing, if the definition makes no sense without assuming in advance the existence of the object.

Part 1: Perspectives on Type Compatibility Anthony J.H. Simons , Department of Computer Science, University of Sheffield
In this introductory article, we first look at some motivational issues, such as the need for plug-in compatible components and the different ways in which compatibility can be judged. Reasons for studying object-oriented type theory include the desire to explain the different features of object-oriented languages in a consistent way. This leads into a discussion of what we really mean by a type, ranging from the concrete to the abstract views.
The eventual economic success of the object-oriented and component-based software industry will depend on the ability to mix and match parts selected from different suppliers [1]. In this, the notion of component compatibility is a paramount concern:
  • the client (component user) has to make certain assumptions about the way a component behaves, in order to use it;
  • the supplier (component provider) will want to build something which at least satisfies these expectations;

An introduction to fibrations, topos theory, the effective topos and modest sets
Wesley Phoa Abstract: A topos is a categorical model of constructive set theory. In particular, the effective topos is the categorical `universe' of recursive mathematics. Among its objects are the modest sets , which form a set-theoretic model for polymorphism. More precisely, there is a fibration of modest sets which satisfies suitable categorical completeness properties, that make it a model for various polymorphic type theories. These lecture notes provide a reasonably thorough introduction to this body of material, aimed at theoretical computer scientists rather than topos theorists. Chapter 2 is an outline of the theory of fibrations, and sketches how they can be used to model various typed lambda-calculi. Chapter 3 is an exposition of some basic topos theory, and explains why a topos can be regarded as a model of set theory. Chapter 4 discusses the classical PER model for polymorphism, and shows how it `lives inside' a particular topos - the effective topos - as the category of modest sets. An appendix contains a full presentation of the internal language of a topos, and a map of the effective topos. Chapters 2 and 3 provide a sampler of categorical type theory and categorical logic, and should be of more general interest than Chapter 4. They can be read more or less independently of each other; a connection is made at the end of Chapter 3.

1 Introduction
Tarskian model theory is almost universally understood as a formal counterpart of the preformal notion of semantics, of the ``linkage between words and things''. The wide-spread opinion is that to account for the semantics of natural language is to furnish its set-theoretic interpretation in a suitable model structure; as exemplified by Montague 1974 The thesis advocated in this paper is that model theory cannot be considered as semantics in this straightforward sense. We try to show that model theory is more adequately understood as shining light on considerations concerning the relation of consequence than on those concerning the relation of expressions to extralinguistic objects; and that it makes little sense to use model theory for the purposes of answering such questions as what is meaning? or when is a sentence true?. The organization of the paper is the following: We start by considering various formal reconstructions of natural languages utilizing standard logic. Section points out that the usual way of explicating the semantics of natural language, namely the way of Tarskian model-theoretic interpretation, is problematic. In Section

My main area of research is in Shape Theory and its applications in programming language design. This work is listed under the following sub-headings (brackets enclose related language designs).
Shape in Computing is a position paper on the importance of shape in computing. It begins: "Values associated with a data type usually have a shape, too. For example, the shape of a matrix is its size. Shape refers to data structures into which data can be inserted at various positions, or ``holes''. For example, the shape of a labelled graph is its underlying, unlabelled graph; that of a record is its set of field names. Shapes, like types, are important in the specification and semantics of programs, and should support tools for static error detection and improved compilation techniques. This position paper will outline the semantic underpinnings of shape theory, and suggest how it might be exploited in a variety of computational settings." Separating Shape from Data is the summary of an invited address emphasising the semantic aspects of shape. It begins:

Wed Jul 2 20:32:30 EDT 2003 Reply to Baldwin 12:11PM 7/1/03. This interchange is really about what model theory might look like if one pays systematic attention to certain foundational matters surrounding explicitness. My thinking is that this point of view is not at odds with the current trends I see in papers and meetings in current model theory. NOTE: This foundational interchange should not slow down any plans for your presentations of model theoretic material. Let T be a first order sentence that has an infinite model. I have been interested in the question of whether you can explicitly construct a model of T whose domain is a given infinite set D. Now I understand what seems to me a very strange question. Here is the obvious response.

Axiomatic set theory
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search In mathematics axiomatic set theory is a rigorous reformulation of set theory in first-order logic created to address paradoxes in naive set theory . The basis of set theory was created principally by the German mathematician Georg Cantor at the end of the 19th century. Initially controversial, set theory has come to play the role of a foundational theory in modern mathematics, in the sense that it interprets propositions about mathematical objects (numbers, functions, etc.,) from all the traditional areas of mathematics ( algebra analysis topology , etc.) in a single theory, and provides a standard set of axioms to prove or disprove them. At the same time the basic concepts of set theory are used throughout mathematics, the subject is pursued in its own right as a specialty by a comparatively small group of mathematicians and logicians . It should be mentioned that there are also mathematicians using and promoting different approaches to the foundations of mathematics. The basic concepts of set theory are set and membership. A

Conrad, I don't understand this response. If the model theory of a language is axiomatized under ZF (I'm not sure it means to axiomatize a *model*), the model theory is NOT a mapping from one set of axioms to another. It is a theory, expressed within ZF, of the formal relations between languages and their interpretations and consequently between theories and their models. correctness, unless you happen to feel comforable with the axiomitization of the model. By "axiomatization of the model" I take you to mean something like "definition of the class of models" of a given theory. I guess I'm not sure what the point is here. It is possible of course that one might define a class of intended models and then, lacking a formal proof of the fact, doubt whether one's theory picks out exactly that class. Sure, that might happen. But so what? There are plenty of cases where we're quite confident of the model theory and hence where various notions of correctness might have some purchase, e.g., PSL. Indeed, if you *can't* describe the intended models of a theory mathematically, it seems to follow that you might not be terribly sure that you know what your theory is describing in the first place. (This was in fact a real problem for the untyped lambda calculus until the great Dana Scott came up with domain theory.)

Let L be a language. Let L contain abstractions, logical and non logical symbols, and a grammar wherein those syntactic components in logical and non logical symbols are a metalanguage or a sort of informal set theory and, as will later be noted, provide a secondary metalanguage, that is to be later discussed, and labeled with (e). Let (A), an abstraction be any [category] of [subjects] or that dedition of all the indices of partitions of free variables expected by those subjects, such that an abstraction may suggest a particular taxonomy amongst those partitions of free variables as a subject. Let a subject be that nomination of certain partitions or free variables A
as those partitions in the subject that are a subgroup to the abstraction as a category, or may be isometrically located to a subgroup within the abstraction, that is a category of all subjections, and that which contains all possible subjects as A
and non logical operators that will be called a [circumstance] of those partitions or free variables in the L-structure. Let a subject be a free variable on an L-structure as an encoding of taxonomy of some other free variables obtained by the instrumentality of the category of subjects in A so that we let a subject be which some of who's partitions are found in Asymptotic knowledge, and let all the partitions of free variables in a subject be Symplectic knowledge.

Type (a further discussion)
This page is for those who for those who ask: Is it true that you guys aren't serious? And for those interested in digging into the foundations of UML 2. Others may skip this page. Q: What is a type? A: A type is used for three purposes: - to classify elements,
- as a shorthand used to specify an element and
- for type checking. A model identifies a type by providing a name for the type, which is a one place predicate name. Some types are left undefined in the model, used by the modeler as primitives, while other types are defined. The definition of a type takes the form of a statement with two parts. Each part is a statement. The two parts are joined by the connective, ' means The first part, the defined expression , contains the constant predicate name for the type, and applies that to exactly one variable name; the second part, the type specification , is an open statement with exactly the same variable free (with that variable free, and no other variable free). Thus, the syntax of a type definition is:

In the aftermath of the discoveries in foundations of mathematics there was surprisingly little effect on mathematics as a whole. If one looks at standard textbooks in different mathematical disciplines, especially those closer to what is referred to as applied mathematics, there is little trace of those developments outside of mathematical logic and model theory. But it seems fair to say that there is a widespread conviction that the principles embodied in the Zermelo - Fraenkel theory with Choice ( ZFC ) are a correct description of the set theoretic underpinnings of mathematics. In most textbooks of the kind referred to above, there is, of course, no discussion of these matters, and set theory is assumed informally, although more advanced principles like Choice or sometimes Replacement are often mentioned explicitly. This implicitly fixes a point of view of the mathematical universe which is at odds with the results in foundations. For example most mathematicians still take it for granted that the real number system is uniquely determined up to isomorphism, which is a correct point of view as long as one does not accept to look at ``unnatural'' interpretations of the membership relation. One of the crucial discoveries in foundations was that the structures studied in mathematics do have nonstandard models. Starting with A.Robinson, this gave rise to a new mathematical discipline

      Relation algebras, well-founded induction and commutation
      The calculus of relations has been introduced by Alfred Tarski, in an attempt to axiomatize the theory of binary relations, without dealing with individuals (the objects being related). It has also been called "relation algebras". Ten years ago, Doornbos, Backhouse and van der Woude [1997] showed that we can characterize the notion of a well-founded relation in a similar setting, so that we end up with the ability to reason by well-founded induction at this relatively high level of abstraction.

      Nonuniform Completeness and Nondeterministic Incompleteness
      Abstract : In this proposal we will consider two different types of reductions, nonuniform many-one reductions, reductions computable with small circuits, and nondeterministic reductions, supposedly infeasible reductions.
      Recently, Hitchcock and Pavan showed that for NEXP, and under a reasonable hypothesis NP, many-one complete sets are also complete with length-increasing nonuniform reductions. We continue their work, we reduce the amount of advice necessary, consider weaker hypotheses, and give evidence that these results may be optimal. We begin one of the first investigation into this type of reduction on common complexity classes and compare it to better known reductions.
      We also show that under a reasonable hypothesis there are sets within PSPACE which are complete under nondeterministic polynomial time reductions, but not under deterministic polynomial time reductions. We will consider extensions to higher levels of the polynomial hierarchy and methods to weaken the given hypothesis.
