 Order theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Orders appear everywhere - at least as far as mathematics and related areas, such as computer science, are concerned.
The first order that one typically meets in primary school mathematical education is the order of natural numbers.
Order theory captures the intuition of orders that arises from such examples in a general setting.

 First-order Model Theory (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
From another point of view, first-order model theory is the paradigm for the rest of model theory; it is the area in which many of the broader ideas of model theory were first worked out.
The elements of C are the ordered pairs (a,b) where a is an element of A and b is an element of B.
These theories have the remarkable property that every infinite indiscernible sequence in any of their models is indiscernible under any linear ordering whatever; so these sequences are a kind of generalisation of bases of vector spaces.

 Course 422 - Order theory and its applications   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Order theory is a fascinating and very natural subject which affords a unified perspective on many areas in mathematics.
The basic concept in order theory is that of a partial order; it formalises the notion of a hierarchy and it appears everywhere in mathematics.
The canonical example of a partial order is the subset relation in a collection of subset of a given set, such as the collection of open sets in a topological space.

This glossary is limited to basic set theory, basic recursive function theory, two branches of logic (truth-functional propositional logic and first-order predicate logic) and their metatheory.
Set theory in which either the generalized continuum hypothesis or the axiom of choice is an axiom.
Set theory in which either the negation of the generalized continuum hypothesis (GCH) or the negation of the axiom of choice (AC) is an axiom.

 New Set Theory
Despite vast advances in set theory and mathematics in general, the language of set theory, which is also the language of mathematics, has remained the same since the beginning of modern set theory and first order logic.
The (first order) language of set theory consists of first order logic and the binary relation of membership (equality is definable using extensionality).
The extension is meaningful whenever the base theory includes basic set theory and the notion of being well-founded, and in particular is meaningful for second order arithmetic.

 Consciousness, Higher-Order Theories of [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Defenders of higher-order theories of consciousness argue that consciousness is explained by the relation between two levels of mental states in which a higher-order mental state takes another mental state, such as a thought or sensation, as its object.
In order to account for the nature of conscious states, the question a higher-order theorist must answer is: why is there something it is like to be in conscious states when there is nothing it is like to be in unconscious states, such as a coma state or a state of dreamless sleep?
One concern about the higher-order perception theory involves the nature of the ‘inner sense.’ Although an ‘inner sense’ or ‘internal scanners’ are central to the higher-order perception theory, the theory does not depend on the existence of a dedicated organ.

 Higher-Order Theory for Functionally Graded Materials
This theory circumvents the problematic use of the standard micromechanical approach, based on the concept of a representative volume element, commonly employed in the analysis of functionally graded composites by explicitly coupling the local (microstructural) and global (macrostructural) responses.
The theoretical framework is based on volumetric averaging of the various field quantities, together with the imposition of boundary and interfacial conditions in an average sense between the subvolumes used to characterize the composite's functionally graded microstructure.
Specialization of the generalized theoretical framework to previously published versions of the higher order theory for materials functionally graded in one and two directions was demonstrated.

 Model Theory (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
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.
The theory of these games establishes that if some first-order sentence φ is true in exactly one of A and B, then there is a number n, calculable from φ, with the property that Spoiler has a strategy for G that will guarantee that he wins in at most n steps.

 Atomic Theory
The objective of this lesson is for students to become familiar with the historic and scientific development of atomic theory.
Students will be informed that in their studies of atomic theory, they will discover that scientific theory also requires previous levels of theorization.
The report should contain a general summary of atomic theory, it should name the individual they have selected as the most significant, and should clearly state reason(s) that defend their selection.

 Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis - The Region - Hayek's Legacy of Spontaneous Order (June 1992)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Hayek argued that those who misunderstood or disregarded the notion of spontaneous order did so because they incorrectly divided the world into two categories: "planned" (which implicitly means order and purpose) and "unplanned" (which connotes disorder, randomness and chaos).
Each member of this third group would be bounded by rules, have its own order and increase in complexity in a way that would not be fully understood.
The political implications of spontaneous order theory are strikingly evident with the recent fall of the Soviet Union.

 The New World Order in Theory and Practice - GHWB Library   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
While the concept of the new world order was made possible by the end of the cold war, it was not made inevitable by it.
Furthermore, while the end of the cold war created the conditions for a new world order in theory, the crisis allowed it to be put in motion.
It was simultaneously an idealistic construct in theory, a genuine vision for action, and, at times, a political strategy bereft of real philosophical meaning that helped Washington execute its national interests by offering political cover, legal justification, and the basis for collective action in war.

 SSRN-Testing the Pecking Order Theory of Capital Structure by Murray Frank, Vidhan Goyal
The pecking order theory of corporate leverage is tested against the static tradeoff theory of corporate leverage, using a broad cross-section of US firms over the period 1980-1998.
None of the predictions of the pecking order theory hold in the data.
As predicted by the static tradeoff theory, robust evidence of mean reversion in leverage is found.

 Zhang+Sipma+Manna: The Decidability of the First-order Theory of Knuth-Bendix Order   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Two kinds of orderings are widely used in term rewriting and theorem proving, namely recursive path ordering (RPO) and Knuth-Bendix ordering (KBO).
Solving ordering constraints is therefore essential to the successful application of ordered rewriting and ordered resolution.
Besides the needs for decision procedures for quantifier-free theories, situations arise in constrained deduction where the truth value of quantified formulae must be decided.

There are other current programmes besides these; see for example the handbook edited by Yuri Ershov in the bibliography, which is about model theory when the structures are built recursively.
Essentially the only example that Los could find was the complete theory of an algebraically closed field; this is uncountably categorical by a well-known theorem of Steinitz.
This question of Los was a tremendous stimulus to research, and it led to a classic paper of Michael Morley in 1965 which showed that Los’s three possibilities are in fact the only ones.

Havelock Ellis, a student of Freud, who possessed a "contrary sexual feeling" and married a lesbian, took issue with Freud on the cause of homosexuality, claiming that homosexuality was inherited and could well be a sign of greatness.
No scientific evidence has ever been found to support Ellis' theory, and it obviously must not have occurred to him that the "great" homosexuals who are prominent in history might have been much "greater" if they had not been homosexual.
