Rank logic is dead, long live rank logic! [article]

Erich Grädel, Wied Pakusa
2015 arXiv   pre-print
Solvability logic can easily be embedded into rank logic, but it is open whether it is a strict fragment.  ...  In particular we show that the variant of rank logic FPR* with an operator that uniformly expresses the matrix rank over finite fields is more expressive than FPR.  ...  σ (restricted to the indices from Y w ) in the subtree T xq i−hw +1 +dw hw−1 Rank logic is dead, long live rank logic!  ...

Logical Inconsistencies in 3 Preference Elicitation Methods for EQ-5D Health States

Mônica Viegas Andrade, Kenya Noronha, Paul Kind, Carla de Barros Reis, Lucas Resende de Carvalho
2015 Medical decision making  
Logical inconsistency for health states preferences occurs when one logically worse health state, in terms of quality of life, is ranked higher than a logically better health state. Objective.  ...  It compares the level of inconsistency in 3 preference-based methods: ranking, visual analog scale (VAS), and time tradeoff (TTO).  ...  Logical inconsistency for health states preferences occurs when one logically worse health state, in terms of quality of life, is ranked higher than a logically better health state.

Can arguments address concerns?

M Hayry
2005 Journal of Medical Ethics  
''But it is for a very good purpose, and, besides, the child is dead.'' P hilosophical bioethics traditionally centres on arguments.  ...  One option is to argue that medical research is enormously useful, and it will, in the long run, benefit many people, including children who would otherwise die prematurely.  ...

Issues of Logicism and Objectivity

Trudy Govier
2017 Informal Logic  
Much of the difference between our approaches concerns what he deems to be a logicistic approach (referred to here as logicism) on my part.  ...  There is no firm criterion that will allow us to pronounce an expression to be a metaphor, or to be a live or dead metaphor.  ...  But for those who would push the notion of metaphorical status to its limits, arguably living still. The notion of the deadness of a metaphor merits further study.  ...

Regular Model Checking Revisited (Technical Report) [article]

Anthony W. Lin, Philipp Rümmer
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We show that many interesting correctness properties can be formulated in this way, examples being safety, liveness, bisimilarity, and games.  ...  We argue that this is a natural formulation that enables us tap into powerful synthesis techniques that have been extensively studied in the software verification community.  ...  Here n is a parameter, regardless of whose value (so long as it is a positive integer) the correctness property has to hold.  ...

Benthic foraminifera: The validity of living, dead or total assemblages for the interpretation of palaeoecology

John W. Murray
1982 Journal of Micropalaeontology  
The validity of the use of living, dead, and total (living plus dead) assemblages is discussed.  ...  It is concluded that ecological studies can be carried out only on living assemblages and that it is important to determine the production and postmortem influences which lead to the formation of the dead  ...  T h e rank order of the first two species in the living assemblage is maintained in the dead and total assemblages. T h e rank order of the other species is variable.  ...

Italian Population-Based Values of EQ-5D Health States

Luciana Scalone, Paolo A. Cortesi, Roberta Ciampichini, Andrea Belisari, Lucia S. D'Angiolella, Giancarlo Cesana, Lorenzo G. Mantovani
2013 Value in Health  
Conclusions: A specific value set is now available to calculate QALYs for the conduction of health economic studies targeted at the Italian health care system.  ...  Model selection was based on logical consistency of the estimates, sign and magnitude of the regression coefficients, goodness of fit, and parsimony.  ...  The health states are ranked in decreasing order according to the values estimated in Italy.  ...
