We introduce a new sub logic of third order logic (TO), the logic TO, as a semantic restriction of TO. We focus on the existential fragment of TO, which we denote Σ 1 , and we study its relational complexity by introducing a variation of the non deterministic relational machine, which we denote 3-NRM, where we allow third order relations in the relational(More)
This paper presents a work-in-progress design and implementation of a software-based token-passing Ethernet protocol for multipoint communications in real-time applications , that does not require any modification to existing Ethernet hardware. Because the protocol is based on fixed priorities, applications using it can be easily modeled using common(More)

This paper sets out to identify the initial positions of the different decision makers who intervene in a group decision making process with a reduced number of actors, and to establish possible consensus paths between these actors. As a methodological support, it employs one of the most widely-known multicriteria decision techniques, namely, the Analytic(More)
We consider redistributional taxation between people with and without human capital if education is endogenous and if individuals differ in their perceptions about own ability. Those who see their ability as low like redistributive taxation because of the transfers it generates. Those who see their ability as high may also like redistributive taxation(More)
