In the summer time of 1991 the dept of arithmetic and information of the Universite de Montreal was once lucky to host the NATO complex research Institute "Algebras and Orders" as its thirtieth Seminaire de mathematiques superieures (SMS), a summer season institution with an extended culture and well-established popularity. This ebook includes the contributions of the invited audio system. common algebra- which proven itself simply within the 1930's- grew from conventional algebra (e.g., teams, modules, earrings and lattices) and common sense (e.g., propositional calculus, version concept and the speculation of relations). It all started through extending effects from those fields yet by means of now it's a well-established and dynamic self-discipline in its personal correct. one of many ambitions of the ASI used to be to hide a vast spectrum of subject matters during this box, and to install proof the normal hyperlinks to, and interactions with, boolean algebra, lattice thought, topology, graphs, kin, automata, theoretical computing device technological know-how and (partial) orders. the idea of orders is a comparatively younger and lively self-discipline sharing yes issues in addition to many researchers and conferences with common algebra and lattice concept. W. Taylor surveyed the summary clone concept which formalizes the method of compos ing operations (i.e., the formation of time period operations) of an algebra as a unique type with countably many items, and best clearly to the translation and equivalence of varieties.

**Earthquake Hazard and Seismic Risk Reduction**

In 1998 Armenia used to be commemorating the 10th anniversary of the catastrophic Spitak earthquake. the second one overseas convention on "Earthquake possibility and Seismic chance aid" subsidized by way of the govt of the Republic of Armenia and United Nation's overseas Decade for traditional catastrophe aid (UN/IDNDR) was once held in commitment to that occasion among 14-21 September (later often called Yerevan Conference).

**Redundancy in Robot Manipulators and Multi-Robot Systems**

The rage within the evolution of robot structures is that the variety of levels of freedom raises. this is often obvious either in robotic manipulator layout and within the shift of concentration from unmarried to multi-robot platforms. Following the rules of evolution in nature, one might infer that including levels of freedom to robotic platforms layout is helpful.

This quantity is an outgrowth of a NATO complex learn Workshop on "Expert Judgment and specialist Systems," held in Porto, Portugal, August 1986. aid for the Workshop was once supplied through the NATO department of medical Affairs, the U.

**Sol-Gel Processing and Applications**

In the course of my expert occupation, I built a robust curiosity in sol-gel know-how, and labored on either xerogel and aerogel structures. My fascination with aerogels has pushed me to discover their advertisement power, that is at present an enormous element of my company's marketing strategy. including my co-workers, i've got additionally labored at the practise of managed PZT and silica xerogels in addition to skinny movie coatings of metals through the sol-gel know-how, those reports confident me of the great potentials of this know-how.
