On The Foundations of Combinatorial Theory: Combinatorial Geometries

It's been transparent in the final ten years that combinatorial geometry, including its order-theoretic counterpart, the geometric lattice, can serve to catalyze the total box of combinatorial idea, and an incredible target of this publication, now to be had in a initial variation, is to offer the idea in a sort available to mathematicians operating in disparate topics.

Application of fuzzy logic to social choice theory
