Study of subgroups of automorphisms of linearly ordered relational structures focuses on conditions that are equivalent to the translations forming a homogeneous, Archimedean ordered group under the asymptotic order.

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

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.

2 What Is a Ratio in Ratio Scaling ?

The terms ratio scale, apparently first introduced by Stevens (1946, 1951), and ratio scaling, apparently first introduced by Krantz (1972) but closely related to previous phrasing, denote different

On the Possible Psychophysical Laws " Revisited : Remarks on Cross-Modal Matching

A nonrelational theory of cross-modal matching, including magnitude estimation, is proposed for the general class of 1-dimensional measurement structures that have real-unit (ratio and interval

On the Theory of Meaningfulness of Ordinal Comparisons in Measurement: II a

The theory of measurement is a source of many interesting combinatorial problems. (See the recent surveys by Roberts [lS, 191.) In this paper, we discuss a particular problem that arises from the

Meaningless Statements, Matching Experiments, and Colored Digraphs

Three questions in measurement theory are discussed, which deal with classifying automorphisms of colored digraphs, specifying certain invariant semiorders and indifference graphs, and identifying certain homogeneous order relations.

A general theory of ratio scalability with remarks about the measurement-theoretic concept of meaningfulness

The role of mathematics in empirical science is puzzling, mysterious, and in my opinion has defied rational explanation. Why mathematics should be so enormously productive and effective in the
