Before some light is lent it from on high;
What folly to think happiness gone by!
Let the hope set!

In science:
Each ﬁnite partially ordered set V is the set of irreducible representations ˆA of some (nonunique in general) If moreover A is separable, then the set ˆA is homeomorphic to the set primA of C ∗ -algebra A, see . primitive ideals of A, which is called a noncommutative lattice.
Gibbs and Quantum Discrete Spaces
Notations on bisimplicial sets. A bisimplicial set is a contravariant functor from the category of pairs of ﬁnite ordered sets to the category of sets.
Higher arithmetic K-theory
We can generalize this frame to an abstraction of the geometric structure of a lattice, in which we have a set of sites {s}, a set of bonds {b}, a set of plaquettes {p} and a set of dual sites {s′}.
General duality for abelian-group-valued statistical-mechanics models
The set TpS of complete types belonging to S can be topologized: a basic open set is the set of types including a given deﬁnable set D.
Integration in valued fields
By a set-valued map Φ from a set X into a set Y we understand a map from X into P (Y ) and write Φ : X ⇒ Y (here P (Y ) denotes the set of all subsets of Y ).
Can a Borel group be generated by a Hurewicz subspace?
This property satisfied by set lk , )- property. A, B is called ( The set U* will be called hereafter the closure of the set U (The set V* will be called hereafter the closure of the set V) and the operation of constructing U* from U (V* from V) will be described hereafter as taking the closure of U (V).
On Ramsey Numbers
If the set of inputs is a product set along rows, then the leaves of a decision tree in the modiﬁed query model Q′ induce a partition of the input set where each part is itself a product set along rows.

A lattice of sets is a family S of sets which is a lattice with respect the inclusion relation ⊆. A ring of sets is a family of sets closed under ﬁnite unions and intersections.
Lattices which can be represented as lattices of intervals
Let eX be the set of ultraﬁlters of constructible sets (i.e. maximal families of constructible sets closed under ﬁnite intersections and not containing the empty set).
O-minimal cohomology: finiteness and invariance results
It follows that eX is the set of types of X (a type p ∈ eX can be identiﬁed with an ultraﬁlter of deﬁnable sets such that X ∈ p) endowed with the spectral topology: as a basis of open sets we take the sets of the form eU with U a deﬁnable open subset of X .
O-minimal cohomology: finiteness and invariance results
This formula corresponds to the language of all binary relations whose base set can be covered by two sets in such a way that none of these sets contains linearly ordered set with 3 elements.
Forbidden lists (NP and CSP for combinatorialists)
If no F′ ∈ F orb(F ′ ) contains a cycle then the set F ′ has a dual D ′ by Theorem 1, and the shadow of this set D ′ gives the dual set D of the set Φ(F orb(F ′ )) (by Theorem 6).
NP by means of lifts and shadows
To summarize, we consider the set Λk and deﬁne the application ~αk → δ(~αk ) of the set of all ~αk to the set of diagrams by drawing all arcs prescribed by ~αk and reducing of set of arcs obtained to the set of arcs between nearest neighbors Σ(~αk ).

This shows that the solution set to the system of constraints from Condition (0.1) and Conditions (1.1) - (1.5) is a constructible set in Qα∈A Rep ring-set (Rα , Mn (C)) and, hence, in Qα∈A Mor ring-set (Rα , Mn (C)).
