Modal logic is a collection of formal systems originally developed and still widely used to represent statements about necessity and possibility. This formula is widely regarded as valid when necessity and possibility are understood with respect to knowledge, as in epistemic modal logic. The first modal axiomatic systems were developed by C. Lewis in , building on an informal tradition stretching back to Aristotle. The relational semantics for modal logic was developed by Arthur Prior , Jaakko Hintikka , and Saul Kripke in the mid twentieth century.

Yuki Murai, Yuki Hashimoto, Yuko Yotsumoto; Modality-dependent and modality-independent nature of central tendency in time perception. Journal of Vision ;16 12 When stimuli of various durations are presented in an intermixed fashion, longer durations are underestimated, and shorter durations are overestimated. This phenomenon, called the central tendency, suggests that our brains optimally encode stimulus duration based on the likelihood measured by the timing system and the prior knowledge about the distribution of the stimulus duration. Our study aims to examine how stimulus modality affects this optimal encoding of time across different timescales. Recent studies have revealed that two distinct systems are recruited in the perception of sub- and supra-second durations. Sub-second timing is subject to local sensory processing while supra-second timing depends on relatively centralized mechanisms.
Handbook of Philosophical Logic pp Cite as. Physics should have helped us to realize that a temporal theory of a phenomenon X is, in general, more than a simple combination of two components: the statics of X and the ordered set of temporal instants. The case in which all functions from times to world-states are allowed is uninteresting; there are too many such functions, and the theory has not begun until we have begun to restrict them. And often the principles that emerge from the interaction of time with the phenomena seem new and surprising. The most dramatic example of this, perhaps, is the interaction of space with time in relativistic space-time.

Arthur Prior — undertook pioneering work in intensional logic at a time when modality and intensional concepts in general were under attack. He invented tense logic and was principal theoretician of the movement to apply modal syntax to the formalisation of a wide variety of phenomena. Prior and Carew Meredith devised a version of the possible worlds semantics several years before Saul Kripke published his first paper on the topic. An iconoclast and a resourceful innovator, Prior inspired many to undertake work in intensional logic. Yet for him the point of a logical calculus was always that it had a subject matter, be it time, obligation, agency, or even biology, and a concern for philosophical problems never lay far below his theorems.
His greatest achievement was the invention of modern temporal logic, worked out in close connection with modal logic.
The population of patients with end stage renal disease ESRD is increasing, lengthening waiting lists for kidney transplantation. Majority of the patients are not able to receive a kidney transplant in timely manner even though it is well established that patient survival and quality of life after kidney transplantation is far better when compared to being on dialysis. A large number of patients who desire a kidney transplant ultimately end up needing some form of dialysis therapy. PD is largely underutilized in the United States due to variety of reasons. As a part of the decision making process, patients are often educated how the choice regarding modality of dialysis would fit into their life but it is not clear and not usually discussed, how it can affect eventual kidney transplantation in the future. In this article we would like to discuss ESRD demographics and outcomes, modality of dialysis and kidney transplant related events. We have summarized the data comparing PD and HD as the modality of dialysis and its impact on allograft and recipient outcomes after kidney transplantation.

Experimental Psychology , 59, pp. And these concepts can both prime motor responses to left or right space and direct visual spatial attention. The present study aimed at investigating the nature of this space-time conceptual metaphor in different auditory tasks. In the first experiment, subjects categorized time-related words past or future that were presented binaurally. In the second experiment, subjects detected left-ear or right-ear targets following time-related words.
It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. Time and Modality is a unique work of reference; not only does it unite studies which explore the syntax and semantics of tense or modality but it is the first book of its kind to embrace the interaction of tense and modality within a coherent generative model. Various topics are covered in this volume: among them are the counterfactual uses of conditionals, modals, and past tense; the irrealis use of perfective aspect; a special English subjunctive; the interaction of tense assignment and the definition of an event; the modal verb as a causative verb; the interaction of modality, tense, and aktionsart; the contrast between deontic and epistemic modal with respect to tense interpretation; the syntax of epistemic modals; the long-awaited definition of generic and habitual sentence; and the introduction of intensionality in copular clauses. Although every article deals with English to some degree, two chapters compare the syntax and semantics of tense and modality in Spanish vs English. The individual articles of this book present the most current advances in research on these topics.
Код ценой в один миллиард долларов. Некоторое время он сидел словно парализованный, затем в панике выбежал в коридор. - Мидж. Скорее. ГЛАВА 44 Фил Чатрукьян, киля от злости, вернулся в лабораторию систем безопасности. Слова Стратмора эхом отдавались в его голове: Уходите немедленно. Это приказ.
Мидж, послушай. - Он засмеялся. - Попрыгунчик - древняя история. Стратмор дал маху.
Хейла нигде не было. Тогда он вернулся в кабинет и прикрыл за собой дверь, затем заблокировал ее стулом, подошел к столу и достал что-то из выдвижного ящика. В тусклом свете мониторов Сьюзан увидела, что это, и побледнела. Он достал пистолет.
Он заберет личные вещи Танкадо и вернется домой. Разве это не услуга. Сьюзан промолчала. Она поняла: все дело в деньгах.
- Где же он, черт возьми. Глядя на оживающий монитор, он подумал, известно ли Стратмору, что в лаборатории систем безопасности нет ни души. Подходя к шифровалке, он успел заметить, что шторы кабинета шефа задернуты.
- Вы вместе с Танкадо взяли АНБ в заложники, после чего ты и его обвел вокруг пальца. Скажи, Танкадо действительно умер от сердечного приступа или же его ликвидировал кто-то из ваших людей. - Ты совсем ослепла.
Сьюзан кивнула. Так и есть, примерно через каждые двадцать строк появляется произвольный набор четырех знаков. Сьюзан пробежала все их глазами.
Тот даже не повернул головы и выключил двигатель. - Двадцать тысяч! - крикнул Беккер. - Мне срочно нужно в аэропорт.
Роскошной рыжеволосой девицей. Мой Бог. Это была настоящая красотка.
