 CONK! Encyclopedia: Stephen_Cole_Kleene   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15) Kleene was best known for founding the branch of mathematical logic known as recursion theory together with Alonzo Church, Kurt GÃ¶del, Alan Turing and others; and for inventing regular expressions. Kleene's standing in mathematical logic is reflected in the proverb "Kleeneliness is next to GÃ¶deliness" among logicians (a pun on "Cleanliness is next to godliness"). An avid mountain climber, Kleene had a strong interest in nature and the environment and was active in many conservation causes. www.conk.com /search/encyclopedia.cgi?q=Stephen_Cole_Kleene   (424 words)

 Kleene algebra - Encyclopedia Glossary Meaning Explanation Kleene algebra   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15) A Kleene algebra is a set A together with two binary operations + : A × A → A and · : A × A → A and one function * : A → A, written as a + b, ab and a* respectively, so that the following axioms are satisfied. In fact, this is a "free" Kleene algebra in the sense that any equation among regular expressions follows from the Kleene algebra axioms and is therefore valid in every Kleene algebra. Kleene algebras were not defined by Kleene; he introduced regular expressions and asked for a set of axioms which would allow to derive all equations among regular expressions. www.encyclopedia-glossary.com /en/Kleene-algebra.html   (1217 words)

 Encyclopedia: Stephen Cole Kleene   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15) Kleenes recursion theorem is a result in computability theory first proved by Stephen Kleene; it allows to construct programs, Turing machines and recursive functions that refer back to their own description. In mathematics, a Kleene algebra (named after Stephen Cole Kleene, pronounced clay-knee) is either of two different things: A bounded distributive lattice with an involution satisfying De Morgans laws, and the inequality x∧−x ≤ y∨−y. In mathematics, the Kleene fixpoint theorem in order theory states that given any complete lattice L, and a monotone function f : L → L, then the least-fixed point (lfp) of f is. www.nationmaster.com /encyclopedia/Stephen-Cole-Kleene   (1803 words)

 Encyclopedia: Kleene fixpoint theorem   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15) A theorem is a proposition that has been or is to be proved on the basis of explicit assumptions. In mathematics, especially in order theory, the greatest element of a subset S of a partially ordered set is an element of S which is greater than or equal to any other element of S. The term least element is defined dually. Order theory In mathematics, a fixed-point theorem is a result saying that a function F will have at least one fixed point, under some conditions on F that can be stated in general terms. www.nationmaster.com /encyclopedia/Kleene-fixpoint-theorem   (374 words)

 Yuri Gurevich: Annotated Articles Andreas Blass, Benjamin Rossman and the speaker are extending the Small-Step Characterization Theorem (that asserts the validity of the sequential version of the ASM thesis) and the Wide-Step Characterization Theorem (that asserts the validity of the parallel version of the ASM thesis) to intra-step interacting algorithms. The theorems are used to explain and sharpen several recent undecidability results related to the corroboration problem, the simultaneous rigid E-unification problem and the prenex fragment of intuitionistic logic with equality. A number of famous theorems about first-order logic were disproved in [60] in the case of finite structures, but Lyndon's theorem on monotone vs. positive resisted the attack. research.microsoft.com /~gurevich/annotated.html   (11831 words)

 Dexter Kozen's Online Publications   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15) We study the complexity of reasoning in Kleene algebra and *-continuous Kleene algebra in the presence of extra assumptions; i.e., the complexity of deciding the validity of universal Horn formulas E --> s=t, where E is a finite set of equations. However, unlike Kleene algebras, they are not closed under the formation of matrices, which renders them inapplicable in certain constructions in automata theory and the design and analysis of algorithms. Kleene algebras are an important class of algebraic structures that arise in diverse areas of computer science: program logic and semantics, relational algebra, automata theory, and the design and analysis of algorithms. www.cs.cornell.edu /kozen/papers/default.html   (7190 words)

 Abstracts for TYPES 98 Resolution based theorem provers such as Otter are more powerful in this respect, but have the drawback that they work with normal forms of formulas, so-called clausal forms. One novelty is that we use short constructive proofs of Dickson's lemma and Hilbert's basis theorem which are extracted from classical proofs using the techniques of [Coquand 92] based on open induction [Raoult 88]. We study the dependencies between theorems and definitions in a theory and how they can be exploited in the development and the maintenance of theory. www.tcs.informatik.uni-muenchen.de /~types98/abstract.html   (3504 words)

 Acta Sci. Math. (Szeged) -- vol. 67. num. 1-2, 2001   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15) One of the central results of the early theory of lattice ordered groups is a theorem due to Ján Jakubik, telling that a maximal convex chain containing the identity element is a direct factor. In \cite {bibjac} and \cite {bibosa} there is shown to be many difficulties associated with this problem but the main examples and theorems there concern the Rees quotients of free monoids on small numbers of generators. As a consequence, a generalization of Ko and Tan's coincidence theorem is obtained. www.acta.hu /Volumes/acta6712.htm   (2194 words)

 CITIDEL: Viewing 'Automatic synthesis of optimal invariant assertions: Mathematical foundations'   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15) The problem of discovering invariant assertions of programs is explored in light of the fixpoint approach in the static analysis of programs, Cousot [1977a], Cousot[1977b]. In section 2 we establish the lattice theoric foundations upon which the synthesis of invariant assertions is based. In section 7 we show how difference equations can be utilized to discover the general term of the sequence of successive approximations so that optimal invariants are obtained by a mere passage to the limit. In section 8 we show that an approximation of the optimal solution to a fixpoint system of equations can be obtained by strengthening the term of a chaotic iteration sequence. www.citidel.org /?op=getobj&identifier=oai:ACMDL:articles.806926   (699 words)

The key concept is that of an approximating operator, a monotone operator on the product bilattice, which gives approximate information on the original operator in an intuitive and well-defined way. With any given approximating operator our theory associates several di#erent types of fixpoints, including the Kripke-Kleene fixpoint, stable fixpoints and the well-founded fixpoint, and... citeseer.lcs.mit.edu /659517.html   (493 words)

 ECTS Guide - Department of Informatics To cover six central theorems of mathematical logic: Kleene’s enumeration theorem, Godel’s completeness theorem, Church’s undecidability theorem, Tarski’s undefinibility theorem and Godel’s first and second incompleteness theorems. The central piece of this section is the above mentioned theorem of Kleene. The final section uses results and notions of the previous two sections to prove Church’s undecidability theorem, Tarski’s undefinibility theorem and Godel’s first incompleteness theorem (in the form that no recursive true axiomatization of first-order arithmetic exhausts all first-order truths of arithmetic). www.fc.ul.pt /en/informatics2.html   (4547 words)

 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15) In many cases a simple syntactic check shows that the closed form of a function, F, can be found immediately. The fixed point is simply F(0) where 0 is the least element of the lattice. We show that the immediate fixpoint theorem can be applied to a wider class of functions when the lattice elements are monotonic and further improve its applicability by the symbolic manipulation of the functions. www.diku.dk /topps/activities/topps-talks/1998/981124   (153 words)
