Our results explain how important syntactic parameters, the maximal width of dependence atoms, and the number of universal quantifiers in a sentence, reflect on its data compl exity.
Hierarchies in Dependence Logic
Each of the exceptional connected invariant subset of a C ∞ flow φ on Rn , θ is φ |R×M , K (cid:40) M is an equilibrium orbit of φ and 3 ≤ n ≤ 6. A moment of reflexion shows that this implies that in the last sentence we may substitute Rn by any (2nd countable, Hausdorff) C ∞ manifold M of dimension m ≥ n.
