This booklet constitutes the court cases of the fifteenth foreign convention on Relational and Algebraic tools in machine technology, RAMiCS 2015, held in Braga, Portugal, in September/October 2015.

The 20 revised complete papers and three invited papers awarded have been rigorously chosen from 25 submissions. The papers take care of the idea of relation algebras and Kleene algebras, technique algebras; mounted aspect calculi; idempotent semirings; quantales, allegories, and dynamic algebras; cylindric algebras, and approximately their software in components corresponding to verification, research and improvement of courses and algorithms, algebraic ways to logics of courses, modal and dynamic logics, period and temporal logics.

**Data Integration: The Relational Logic Approach**

Facts integration is a serious challenge in our more and more interconnected yet necessarily heterogeneous global. there are various facts assets on hand in organizational databases and on public info structures just like the world-wide-web. no longer unusually, the assets frequently use diverse vocabularies and diversified facts constructions, being created, as they're, by means of varied humans, at diversified instances, for various reasons.

This publication constitutes the joint refereed court cases of the 4th overseas Workshop on Approximation Algorithms for Optimization difficulties, APPROX 2001 and of the fifth foreign Workshop on Ranomization and Approximation ideas in laptop technology, RANDOM 2001, held in Berkeley, California, united states in August 2001.

This ebook constitutes the complaints of the fifteenth overseas convention on Relational and Algebraic equipment in computing device technology, RAMiCS 2015, held in Braga, Portugal, in September/October 2015. The 20 revised complete papers and three invited papers offered have been conscientiously chosen from 25 submissions. The papers take care of the idea of relation algebras and Kleene algebras, technique algebras; mounted element calculi; idempotent semirings; quantales, allegories, and dynamic algebras; cylindric algebras, and approximately their software in components resembling verification, research and improvement of courses and algorithms, algebraic techniques to logics of courses, modal and dynamic logics, period and temporal logics.

**Biometrics in a Data Driven World: Trends, Technologies, and Challenges**

Biometrics in a knowledge pushed international: traits, applied sciences, and demanding situations goals to notify readers concerning the sleek purposes of biometrics within the context of a data-driven society, to familiarize them with the wealthy background of biometrics, and to supply them with a glimpse into the way forward for biometrics.

**Example text**

We can make this a little tighter by considering maps instead of subsets. Definition 1. Let N = (N1 , N2 ) be an A-network, and h : A → ℘(U 2 ) a representation of A with base U . Connections between Relation Algebras and Cylindric Algebras 33 1. A partial map f : N1 → U is said to be a partial embedding of N into h if (f (x), f (y)) ∈ h(N2 (x, y)) for all x, y ∈ dom(f ). 2. We say that f is a total embedding, or just an embedding, if dom(f ) = N1 . 3. We also say that N embeds homogeneously into h if every partial embedding of N into h extends to a total one.

We end with some notation that will be useful. For A-networks N = (N1 , N2 ) and M = (M1 , M2 ), and any objects i1 , . . ,ik M Connections between Relation Algebras and Cylindric Algebras 31 if N1 \ {i1 , . . , ik } = M1 \ {i1 , . . , ik } = I, say, and N (i, j) = M (i, j) for all i, j ∈ I. That is, M and N agree oﬀ of {i1 , . . , ik }. 2 Cylindric Algebras Just as relation algebras ‘algebraise’ binary relations, so cylindric algebras algebraise relations of higher arities. From now on, ﬁx some ﬁnite dimension (or arity) n ≥ 3.

For n ≥ 5, not every atomic relation algebra A has any n-dimensional cylindric basis at all. – Even when A does have an n-dimensional cylindric basis, say B, it may be that A is representable but Cm B is not (though it will be an ndimensional cylindric algebra). The ‘reason’ is that not every network in B need embed (at all, or homogeneously) into a representation of A. Examples can be found in [6, pp. 960–961] and [7, p. 389]. – It is true that if A has a cylindric basis B and Cm B is representable, then A is representable, as again it is a subalgebra of the relation algebra reduct of Cm B.
