Innovative Technological Materials: Structural Properties by Neutron Scattering, Synchrotron Radiation and Modeling

This booklet offers at the start principles at the solutions that neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation might provide in cutting edge fabrics technology and know-how. specifically, non-conventional, strange or cutting edge neutron and x-ray scattering experiments (from either the medical and the instrumental perspective) can be defined which both have novel functions or supply a brand new perception into fabric technological know-how and know-how.

A lot of results, especially those concerning residuated lattices, are taken from the book [ 51]. 24 MATHEMATICAL PRINCIPLES OF FUZZY LOGIC Residuated lattices. 7 A residuated lattice is an algebra DEFINITION £, = (L, V, A, ®, -t, 0,1). e. a ® b ::; c iff a::; b -t c. 15) We see that in comparison with the ordinary lattice, this structure is enriched by a special couple (®, -t) of operations called the adjoint couple.
