    A modified form of the anisotropic Heisenberg spin chain has been considered. By use of the prolongation structure technique of Wahlquist and Estabrook, the elliptic Lax pair associated with this equation has been deduced. A variant of the Reimann–Hilbert problem on the torus is used to...

    In this paper an unbounded generalization of left Hilbert algebras by partial *-algebras is considered, and the Tomita–Takesaki theory is extended to partial O*-algebras. While such a construction has been considered in previous papers [A. Inoue, Publ. RIMS, Kyoto Univ. 22, 725 (1986);...

    We continue the study of counting complexity begun in [13], [14], [15] by proving upper and lower bounds on the complexity of computing the Hilbert polynomial of a homogeneous ideal. We show that the problem of computing the Hilbert polynomial of a smooth equidimensional complex projective...

    This paper aims at a logico-mathematical analysis of the concept of chaos from the point of view of a constructivist philosophy of physics. The idea of an internal logic of chaos theory is meant as an alternative to a realist conception of chaos. A brief historical overview of the theory of...

    In this paper, we give some conditions on the exponential stability of a family of strongly continuous semigroups on Hilbert space, which are characterized by the corresponding infinitesimal generators.

  • Congruence Kernels in Weakly Regular Varieties. Chajda, Ivan // Southeast Asian Bulletin of Mathematics;2000, Vol. 24 Issue 1, p15 

    Abstract. We generalize the concept of deductive system of Hilbert algebras for the general case of algebras in weakly regular variety and we show that congruence kernels of these algebras are just deductive systems. This concept enables us to describe congruence classes in algebras of weakly...

  • The Lattice of Deductive Systems on Hilbert Algebras. Chajda, Ivan // Southeast Asian Bulletin of Mathematics;2002, Vol. 26 Issue 1, p21 

    The concept of deductive system on a Hilbert algebra was introduced by A. Diego. We show that the set Ded𝒜 of all deductive systems on a Hilbert algebra 𝒜 forms an algebraic lattice which is distributive.

    The later Wittgenstein’s perspective on mathematical sentences as norms is motivated for sentences belonging to Hilbertian axiomatic systems where the axioms are treated as implicit definitions. It is shown that in this approach the axioms are employed as norms in that they function as...
