By G. Faust, M. Haase, J. H. Argyris

This quantity is meant as an in depth advent to the speculation of chaos and is addressed to physicists and engineers who desire to be familiar with this new and interesting technological know-how linked to non-linear deterministic platforms. arithmetic are a pre-requisite software.

51 f. (where 'A-'>B' stands for 'If A, then B'), we obtain a well-formed and readily intelligible formula: ((A -'> B) -'> C) -'> ((C -'> A) -'> A). Such formulas are also known as propositional forms. It seems reasonable enough to say that the form of a proposition is that which two propositions of the same form have in common. This is not a circular definition, since despite the linguistic formulation the concept of 'having the same form' is more basic than that of 'having the form .. '. Set theory provides a possible definition: starting from the concept of 'having the same form', we define as the form of a proposition P the totality of propositions that have the same form as P.

E. g. in the form 25 ... V (Sl 1\ ... 1\ s;) V ... , where Sj (j= 1, ... ) B is known as the (in this case: disjunctive) normal form (here: of A). In the following concepts based on interpretations will, where relevant, be included under 'Lp'. B. The language LI; of syllogistic may be interpreted in terms of any 'world' D of objects and their properties. In an interpretation of this kind we are concerned only with the extensions of properties, since our intended interpretation of the proposition-forming functors depends only on these.

Such an attribute in the extended sense will be designated as closed. A closed attribute is yielded by every attribute A 1 in the restricted sense via the property of belonging to the domain for which A 1 was originally meaningful, and of having in addition the property described by A 1. We proceed similarly for relations between n things belonging to a domain for which an attribute An is given. The distinction between open and closed attributes is of particular importance for mathematics. g. numbers) are regarded as closed, and if so, which ones.
