Introduction to Relation Algebras

Relation Algebras, Volume 1
85,59 €*
Introduces readers from mathematics, computer science, and beyond to the increasingly relevant field of relation algebras
Preface.- Introduction.- 1. The calculus of relations.- 2. Relation algebras.- 3. Examples of relation algebras.- 4. Arithmetic.- 5. Special elements.- 6. Subalgebras.- 7. Homomorphisms.- 8. Ideals and quotients.- 9. Simple algebras.- 10. Relativizations.- 11. Direct products.- 12. Subdirect products.- 13. Minimal relation algebras.- References.- Index.
The first volume of a pair that charts relation algebras from novice to expert level, this text offers a comprehensive grounding for readers new to the topic. Upon completing this introduction, mathematics students may delve into areas of active research by progressing to the second volume, Advanced Topics in Relation Algebras; computer scientists, philosophers, and beyond will be equipped to apply these tools in their own field.

Steven Givant is a Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at Mills College, California. As a long-term collaborator of Alfred Tarski-one of the great logicians-Givant has been involved first-hand in the development of the field of relation algebras since the 1970s. His previous books include Duality Theories for Boolean Algebras with Operators (Springer, 2014), Introduction to Boolean Algebras, with Paul Halmos (Springer, 2009), Logic as Algebra, with Paul Halmos (MAA, 1998), and A Formalization of Set Theory without Variables, with Alfred Tarski (AMS, 1987). He was also coeditor, with Ralph McKenzie, of Alfred Tarski's Collected Papers: Vol 1-4 (Birkhäuser, 1986).
