A single finite structure can always be axiomatized in first-order logic, where axiomatized in a language L means described uniquely up to isomorphism by a single L-sentence.

Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. For instance, for FO consider classes FO[m] for each m. This is a thoroughly revised and enlarged second edition that presents the main results flym descriptive complexity theory, that is, the connections between axiomatizability of classes of finite structures and their complexity with respect throry time and space bounds.

The book is written in such a way that the respective parts on model theory and descriptive complexity theory may be read independently. References to this book Handbook of Formal Languages: No keywords specified fix it.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Selected pages Title Page. As it turned out, first-order language we mostly speak of first-order logic became the most prominent language in this respect, the reason being that it obeys some fundamental principles such as the compactness theorem and the completeness theorem. Since many central theorems of MT do not hold when restricted to finite structures, FMT is quite different from MT in its methods of proof.


Szwast, The law fails for the class of existential second-order Godel sentences with equality, Proc.

Account Options Sign in. Ebbinghauss, these properties do not axiomatize the structure, since for structure 1′ the above properties hold as well, yet structures 1 and 1′ are not isomorphic. MT is the branch of mathematical logic which deals with the relation between a formal language syntax and its interpretations semantics. The descriptions given so far all specify the number of elements of the universe. Set up a giveaway. Elements of Finite Model Theory.
