Re: Minimal Negation Operators • (1) • (2) • (3) • (4) Re: Laws of Form • Bruce Schuman BS: Leon Conrad’s presentation talks about “marked” and “unmarked” states. He uses checkboxes to illustrate this choice, which seem to be … Continue reading

Survey of Relation Theory • 5

In this Survey of blog and wiki posts on Relation Theory, relations are viewed from the perspective of combinatorics, in other words, as a topic in discrete mathematics, with special attention to finite structures and concrete set-theoretic constructions, many of … Continue reading
