One of the pleasant and axiomatic
fictions they have created is that they are superior to the rest of mankind in wisdom and efficiency.
The sacredness of life I had accepted as axiomatic
. That it was intrinsically valuable was a truism I had never questioned.
Vdovin (1949-2007), the creator of a new axiomatics of the set theory.
It is generally accepted that the (presumably) non-contradictory Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory ZF with the axiom of choice is the most accurate and complete axiomatic representation of the core of Cantor set theory.
He begins with puzzles involving liars and truth-tellers, moves into the subject of propositional logic, which formalizes the reasoning of the liar/truth-teller puzzles, and then presents materials of first-order logic, while including discussion of infinity and formal axiomatics
In light of the intensive development and increasing complexity of portfolio management theory, Prigent discusses the axiomatics
of the individual choice in an uncertain framework, reviews standard portfolio optimization, makes the literature on stochastic optimization as applied to mathematical finance accessible to students and non-specialist researchers, and shows how theoretical results can be applied to practical and operational portfolio optimization.
Fortunately, in numerous texts, many of the key ingredients already will be present in some way--though frequently hidden within axiomatics
, in examples at the ends of sections, exercises at the ends of chapters, as appendices, etc.
Today, Trexel (formerly Axiomatics
Corp.) holds the exclusive license for the material, the original batch manufacturing process, and a newer continuous process that it developed.
I want first to dispose of the canard that I have anything but respect for axiomatics. Countless examples demonstrate that axiomatization of disciplines rooted in demonstrative reasoning can enrich understanding, clarify basic concepts, uncover contradictions, eliminate ambiguities, and reveal hidden assumptions.
My opinion continues to be that axiomatics, like every other tool of science, is no better than its user, and not all users are skilled.
