Abstract: As we know there are 16 binary connectives that can be defined using bivalent truth-tables. These are - all together or subsets of them - considered to define classical propositional logic. Positive classical propositional logic is just one subsystem using the truth-tables of conjunction. disjunction and implication. If we consider the power set of these 16 connectives, we may wonder how many different subsystems of classical logic we have? (It is easy to define equivalence between such systems using definability) We will investigate in particular the maximal ones relatively to classical logic, which can served as the basis of interesting non-truth-functional bivalent paraconsistent systems stronger than CluN, C1, etc.

on 26-02-2014

... Carlos Salema has followed the evolution of EU science funding closely through the years. Since 1986, he has been the Portuguese delegate to the Programme Committee, advising the European Commission on the ICT research work programmes. Professor Salema talks to Science|Business about the main changes he seen to over the years, remaining regulatory weaknesses, the areas where Europe has led in ICT and highlights challenges of the €70B Horizon 2020 programme.
