In retrospect: A personal view on Moshé Flato’s scientific legacy
"... When a talented sculptor is confronted with a block of marble, he is using tools that come from centuries of tradition and the training which he received from his masters. But from the first stroke he already has, in the back of his mind, the design of the sculpture which he wants to extract from th ..."

His masterpiece is not finished. Much polishing remains to be done, new elements still need to be added to the main

: In certain areas of artificial intelligence there is need to represent continuous change and to make statements that are interpreted with respect to time intervals rather than time points. To this end we develop a modal temporal logic based on time intervals, a logic which can be viewed as a generalization of pointbased modal temporal logic. We discuss related logics, give an intuitive presentation of the new logic, and define its formal syntax and semantics. We make no assumption about the underlying nature of time, allowing it to be discrete (such as the natural numbers) or continuous (such as the rationals or the reals), linear or branching, complete (such as the reals) or not (such as the rationals). We show, however, that there are formulas in the logic that allow us to distinguish all these situations. We also give a translation of our logic into firstorder logic, which allows us to apply some results on firstorder logic to our modal one. Finally, we consider the difficulty o...
Multilayer Feedforward Networks With a Nonpolynomial Activation Function Can Approximate Any Function

Several researchers characterized the activation fimction under which multilayer feedforward networks can act as universal approximators. We show that most of all the characterizations that were reported thus far in the literature are special cases of the following general result: A standard multilayer feedforward network with a locally bounded piecewise continuous activation fimction can approximate an3, continuous function to any degree of accuracy if and only if the network's activation function is not a polynomial. We also emphasize the important role of the threshold, asserting that without it the last theorem does not hold.

which the data links are used by the network nodes. This book concentrates on mechanisms for link access in multiaccess communication systems including local area networks and radio networks. The text has a mathematical orientation with emphasis on insight, that is, the analysis is mathematical in nature yet the purpose is understanding the operation of the systems through their analysis. We have assumed acquaintance with probabilistic modeling of systems, some knowledge in stochastic processes and just a bit of elementary queueing systemsall on the level of undergraduate studies. With this knowledge the reader should be able to follow all the mathematical derivations. While some of the material covered in this book appeared in other books, the vast body of the text has appeared only in professional journals in their typical cryptic language and inconsistent notation. Some of the material appears here for the first time. Because of the inconsistent notation used in the diverse exposi

The vast expressive power of language is made possible by two principles: the arbitrary soundmeaning pairing underlying words, and the discrete combinatorial system underlying grammar. These principles implicate distinct cognitive mechanisms: associative memory and symbolmanipulating rules. The distinction may be seen in the difference between regular inflection (e.g., walkwalked), which is productive and openended and hence implicates a rule, and irregular inflection (e.g., comecame, which is idiosyncratic and closed and hence implicates individually memorized words. Nonetheless, two very different theories have attempted to collapse the distinction; generative phonology invokes minor rules to generate irregular as well as regular forms, and connectionism invokes a pattern associator memory to store and retrieve regular as well as irregular forms. I present evidence from three disciplines that supports the traditional word/rule distinction, though with an enriched conception of lexical memory with some of the properties of a patternassociator. Rules, nonetheless, are distinct from patternassociation, because a rule concatenates a suffix to a symbol for verbs, so it does not require access to memorized verbs or their sound patterns, but applies as the "default, " whenever
A neural dissociation within language: Evidence that the mental dictionary is part of declarative memory, and that grammatical rules are processed by the procedural system

Language comprises a lexicon for storing words and a grammar for generating rulegoverned forms. Evidence is presented that the lexicon is part of a temporalparietal/medialtemporal "declarative memory " system and that grammatical rules are processed by a frontallbasalganglia "procedural " system. Patients produced past tenses of regular and novel verbs (looked and plagged), which require anedsuffixation rule, and irregular verbs (dug), which are retrieved from memory. Wordfinding difficulties in posterior aphasia, and the general declarative memory impairment in Alzheimer's disease, led to more errors with irregular than regular and novel verbs. Grammatical difficulties in anterior aphasia, and the general impairment of procedures in Parkinson's disease, led to the opposite pattern. In contrast to the Parkinson's patients, who showed suppressed motor activity and rule use, Huntington's disease patients showed excess motor activity and rule use, underscoring a role for the basal ganglia in grammatical processing.

In this doctoral dissertation, we study three basic problems in machine learning and two new hypothesis spaces with corresponding learning algorithms. The problems we investigate are: accuracy estimation, feature subset selection, and parameter tuning. The latter two problems are related and are studied under the wrapper approach. The hypothesis spaces we investigate are: decision tables with a default majority rule (DTMs) and oblivious readonce decision graphs (OODGs).
