MODELING OCCURRENCES OF OBJECTS IN RELATIONS

  • JOOP LEO (a1)
Abstract

We study the logical structure of ‘real’ relations, and in particular the notion of occurrences of objects in a state. We start with formulating a number of principles for occurrences and defining corresponding mathematical models. These models are analyzed to get more insight in the formal properties of occurrences. In particular, we prove uniqueness results that tell us more about the possible logical structures relations might have.
