This paper studies several concepts about subgroups of automorphisms of linearly ordered relational structures. In particular, it focuses on conditions that are equivalent to the translations (automorphisms with no fixed points plus the identity) forming a homogeneous, Archimedean ordered group under the asymptotic order. For the automorphisms of an ordered relational structure, these properties are equivalent to the structure having a numerical representation whose scale type lies between, but…

The automorphism group is shown to be a topological group that acts topologically on the base set A of the structure and on its rank-ordered Cartesian products and the property of local compactness of the automorphic group is derived and related results proved.

Objective Physiological Measurements but Not Subjective Reports Moderate the Effect of Hunger on Choice Behavior
It is found that hunger increases risk-seeking behavior in a lottery-choice task, modifies levels of vindictiveness in a social decision-making task, but does not have a detectible effect on economic inconsistency in a budget-set choice task.
Manipulating measurement scales in medical statistical analysis and data mining: A review of methodologies
This work has presented two ordinal–variables clustering examples, as more challenging variable in analysis, using Wisconsin Breast Cancer Data, and found that by using appropriate clustering algorithm based on the measurement scale of the variables in the study, high performance is granted.

Uniqueness and homogeneity of ordered relational structures
Measurement structures with archimedean ordered translation groups
The paper focuses on three problems of generalizing properties of concatenation structures (ordered structures with a monotonic operation) to ordered structures lacking any operation. (1) What is the
