We introduce a new framework for classifying logics on finite structures and studying their expressive power. This framework is based on the concept of almost everywhere equivalence of logics, that is to say, two logics having the same expressive power on a class of asymptotic measure 1. More precisely, if L, L 0 are two logics and is an asymptotic measure(More)
The concept of a generalized quantiier of a given similarity type was deened in Lin66]. Our main result says that on nite structures diierent similarity types give rise to diierent classes of generalized quantiiers. More exactly, for every similarity type t there is a generalized quantiier of type t which is not deenable in the extension of rst order logic(More)
We study the expressive power of various modal logics with team semantics. We show that exactly the properties of teams that are downward closed and closed under team k-bisimulation, for some finite k, are definable in modal logic extended with intu-itionistic disjunction. Furthermore, we show that the expressive power of modal logic with intuitionistic(More)
This work presents a classification of weak models of distributed computing. We focus on deterministic distributed algorithms, and we study models of computing that are weaker versions of the widely-studied port-numbering model. In the port-numbering model, a node of degree <i>d</i> receives messages through <i>d</i> input ports and it sends messages(More)
