Euclidian logic

Dear all,
Imagine a rectangle U and two circles +/-A and +/-B inside or above (if above you can drag them inside U). I wonder if it is possible to write a program which can do the following. The well known rule is, that A and -A fill the rectangle totally, and so do B and -B, when they are dragged inside U.
3 Definitions:
Identity: =
Identity means being at the same time at the same place or in our case at the same part of euclidian 3d or on paper 2d say 5 square-inch space. So "two" things are identical or one if "they" are of the same size and occupy the same part of space at the same time ("at the same time" we could leave out, for simultaneity is a function of place).
whole: + or -
A whole "A" is a 3d (or on paper 2d) limited continuous magnitude. Every magnitude or quantity (in the sense of magnitude) finite or infinite big or small devides the universe into two parts, namely A and -A, where "" and "-" mean "the whole" and the "whole non-". No part of +A occupies any part of the space of -A.
part: (+) or (-)
A part
� is (always!) smaller than its whole
� is totally inside its whole
� occupies therefore the same part of space as the part of its whole or is identical with it.
� "(+)" means "part of +"
� "(-)" means "part of -"
There should be the rectangular U filled with one color.
Then there are the two quantities A and B above the universe. A and B are circles can be inscribed in U via drag and drop. The size of A and B can be changed with the mouse. The maximum diameter of A or B is the diameter of the universe (or the height if the universe is a rectangle), the minimum size can be an infinite small quantity but not a point without parts. You can switch between the two signs + and - of A and B. When you drag say +A totally into the universe the name of the universe "U" or "+U" disappears and it is devided into two parts, +A and -A in two colors, so that the sum of +A plus -A = U.
Now if you drag the second quantity say +B into the universe, the universe will be divided into two, three or into four parts in two, three or four colors. The program should be able to regognize and name these two, three or four parts.
Into two parts U is divided if +A and +B have the same size and are at the same place:
+A=+B, which means the whole A is identical with the whole B, one circle and
-A=-B, which means the whole non-A is identical with the whole non-B the rest of the universe.
The two equations appear besides the universe. Their letters have the same colours as the two sections the universe is devided in.
Into three parts if +A and +B are apart from each other
+ A=(-)B, which means the whole +A is identical with a part of non-B,
(-)A= + B, which means a part of non-A is identical with the whole B and
(-)A=(-)B, which means a part of non-A is identical with a part of non-B, the rest of the universe besides +A and +B.
The three equations appear besides the universe. Their letters have the same colours as the three sections. When moving +A or +B the equations should change in the proper way. For instance if you move the smaller +A into the bigger +B, so that +A becomes a part of +B:
whole A and part B:
+ A=(+)B,
(-)A= - B, everything outside B and
(-)A=(+)B, the rest between tho both above.
Or if you move the smaller +B into the bigger +A part A and whole B:
(+)A= + B,
- A=(-)B, the universe outside +A and
(+)A=(-)B, the part inside +A which does not belong to +B.
Finally the universe is divided into four parts if +A and +B cut each other,
(-)A=(+)B and
The four equations appear besides the universe. Their letters have the same colours as the four sections. I wonder if it is possible that the intersection (+)A=(+)B gets a different color than the other three sections.
In all cases the sum of the two, three or four parts is the universe. But the universe itself never appears in any logical equation as well as the borders don't although there is no quantity without them.
And so the rest of the combinations, namely +A and -B, -A and +B and -A and -B.
Could it be that there is someone who has some interest in accompanying such a project with mathematical and computer know how? If so let me know. Then I make some graphical illustrations of the above and give some more informations.
Lothar Seidel, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
A problem to be solved is: ">, <, =" and "whole, part, identity" have different meanings in both sciences, mathematics and logic. For instance being part of includes being smaller, but being smaller does not include to be part of.
If one understands the meaning of "A=B" used in here, she understands all the rest.
The 16 equations you can build are:
+ A= + B
- A= - B
+ A= - B
- A= + B
(+)A= - B
- A=(+)B
(+)A= + B
- A=(-)B
+ A=(+)B
(-)A= - B
+ A=(-)B
(-)A= + B

Could you rework your posting to make it a little more readable? It's obviously complicated but the rambling doesn't help. Try taking it one step at a time with clear definitions and no unnecessary words.

  • Logical command in ABAP.....Urgent

      i am pretty new using ABAP program so i neeed help urgently. i am trying to move a file on the application server from one directory to the other and i was using the open dataset function to do that. but the file i am trying to move is pretty big and because i am using internal table to store, it is causing problems with the space.
      i have consulted the basis guys and they have managed to create a logical file for copying from one directory to the other on the application server. to help you furthter. i am enclosing the mail sent to me.
    I have created a logical command which should copy the file from one location to the other but you need to pass it the source dir and file name and the destination dir and file name.
    The logical command is ZCOPY and uses cmd /c copy
    Copies one or more files to another location.
    COPY [/V] [/N] [/Y | /-Y] [/Z] [/A | /B ] source [/A | /B]
         [+ source [/A | /B] [+ ...]] [destination [/A | /B]]
      source       Specifies the file or files to be copied.
      /A           Indicates an ASCII text file.
      /B           Indicates a binary file.
      destination  Specifies the directory and/or filename for the new file(s).
      /V           Verifies that new files are written correctly.
      /N           Uses short filename, if available, when copying a file with a
                   non-8dot3 name.
      /Y           Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
                   existing destination file.
      /-Y          Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
                   existing destination file.
      /Z           Copies networked files in restartable mode.
    The switch /Y may be preset in the COPYCMD environment variable.
    This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line.  Default is
    to prompt on overwrites unless COPY command is being executed from
    within a batch script.
    the problem now is i have no idea about how to use the logical command. can any one help me.

  • Logical Systems in Business Services

    In Business Service creation, for Adapter Specific Identifiers, the parameter for the Logical System. It is only possible to assign one logical system to one Business Service ?.
    i.e. to do
    MyBusServ1, Z_LS_1 
    MyBusServ2, Z_LS_1
    is not possible ?
    When trying to assign Z_LS_1 to MyBusServ2 I get the error that Z_LS_1 is already assigned. Is there a way to circumvent ?, I do not want to create two logical systems in R/3 as the IDOCS types submitted by the Business Services are the same.

    Thanks for the replies
    Sarvesh - The Business service is the sender of the information \ IDOC. If I remove the Adapter specific config then how will XI know what Logical system to apply to the IDOC ?.
    Jaishankar - I am creating two IDOC's in SAP. MATMAS and PORDCR. The input file are coming from two different source systems. lets say sys1 and sys2. Both of thse for clarity are created in my scenario as Business Services. sys 1 creates MATMAS and PORDCR IDOC's int he syatem, sys2 creates PORDCR IDOC's in the system. As sys1 and sys2 are related in that they created the IDOC's as part od the same project then I would like to collect in the same partner profile in SAP e.g. Partner Profile ZPP_IDOC with IDOC types MATMAS PORDCR that serve as input for both systems. Logically I would assume that I can assing the logical system ZPP_IDOC to both the adapter specific parameter in both sys1 and sys2.

  • Logical Database in Abap Objects

    Hi to All
    I want do it a program report using a Logical Database.
    Is this possible ??? But when I make a GET <node>, occurs the following error:
             "" Statement "ENDMETHOD" missing.  ""
    I'm doing the following:
                   GET VBRK.
    Please, somebody tell me how I use the logical database in Abap Objects.
    Thank you very much
    Dario R.

    Hi there
    Logical databases whilst of "some use" are not really part of OO.
    If you want to use a logical database in an abap OO program I would create a special class which just does the get data from your DB and pass this either at record or table level.
    Techniques such as GET XXXX LATE aren't really part of any OO type of application since at Object Instantiation time you should be able to access ALL the attributes of that object.
    As far as OO is concerned Logical databases are a throwback to "Dinosaur Technology".
    Since however modules such as SD and FI are still heavily reliant on relational structures (i.e linked tables etc)  then there is still some limited life in this stuff but for OO try and solve it by another method.
    If you really must use this stuff in OO then do it via a FMOD call and save the data in a table which your method will pass back to your application program.
    You can't issue a GET command directly in a method.

  • Logical level in Fact tables - best practice

    Hi all,
    I am currently working on a complex OBIEE project/solution where I am going straight to the production tables, so the fact (and dimension) tables are pretty complex since I am using more sources in the logical tables to increase performance. Anyway, what I am many times struggling with is the Logical Levels (in Content tab) where the level of each dimension is to be set. In a star schema (one-to-many) this is pretty straight forward and easy to set up, but when the Business Model (and physical model) gets more complex I sometimes struggle with the aggregates - to get them work/appear with different dimensions. (Using the menu "More" - "Get levels" does not allways give the best solution......far from). I have some combinations of left- and right outer join as well, making it even more complicated for the BI server.
    For instance - I have about 10-12 different dimensions - should all of them allways be connected to each fact table? Either on Detail or Total level. I can see the use of the logical levels when using aggregate fact tables (on quarter, month etc.), but is it better just to skip the logical level setup when no aggregate tables are used? Sometimes it seems like that is the easiest approach...
    Does anyone have a best practice concerning this issue? I have googled for this but I haven't found anything good yet. Any ideas/articles are highly appreciated.

    Hi User,
    For instance - I have about 10-12 different dimensions - should all of them always be connected to each fact table? Either on Detail or Total level.It not necessary to connect to all dimensions completely based on the report that you are creating ,but as a best practice we should maintain all at Detail level only,when you are mentioning any join conditions in physical layer
    for example for the sales table if u want to report at ProductDimension.ProductnameLevel then u should use detail level else total level(at Product,employee level)
    Get Levels. (Available only for fact tables) Changes aggregation content. If joins do not exist between fact table sources and dimension table sources (for example, if the same physical table is in both sources), the aggregation content determined by the administration tool will not include the aggregation content of this dimension.

  • Logical System in IDOC-XI scenario

         I need help to understand few things in IDOC-XI scenario, could any one help me in this regard.
        we use Adapter specific identifiers to map services, we have following type of identifiers 1) Sys.ID & Client No.  2) Logical System. 
    my questions are
    a) Are we use Logical System in B to B scenario ?
    b) Are we use LS in reference to the SAP system or Non SAP system ? if a non SAP a non SAP system send an IDOC and why a non SAP system receive an IDOC ( conversion is possible in XI ) ?
    Thanks and Regards

    Hay Kumar,
    Logical systems can also be used for SAp sytems wich are not installed yet as a virtuall placeholder.
    a) yes. if on of your business is a non sap system or a propritery system that you developed yuo'll ue LS.
    b) non SAP system can send and recieve IDOCs. so it's possiable to get an IDOC from a system and turn it into an RFC for SAP or get an IDOC from an SAP system and then turn it into something else for another system.
    Have a Good One,

  • Logical Profiles in ISE 1.2.1

    I´m having trouble understanding the Logical Profiles. 
    What I understand from the user guide:
    for those to lazy to read: 
    You can use the logical profile in an authorization policy condition to help create an overall network access policy for a category of profiles. You can create a simple condition for authorization, which can be included in the authorization rule. The attribute-value pair that you can use in the authorization condition is the logical profile (attribute) and the name of the logical profile (value), which can be found in the EndPoints systems dictionary.
    so I thought that meant that I can group Different Profiles (Apple Iphone, Ipad, Ipod) together into a logical group e.g. "BYOD_Idevice" and use this logical profile in the Authorization. 
    But I can´t choose this freshly created Logical Group in the Authorization Condition. As for the fact, I can´t choose this logical group ANYWHERE. 
    Leaning back and thinking about it - it somehow makes sense. In the Authorization, you don´t pick Profiles, you choose Identity endpoints. So whats the point about the logical profiles? I was hoping to clean/lean up my authorization rules with them. But for what would I use them else? 
    Or is this a bug in ise 1.2.1? Not sure if I should call tac about this, or if I´m just not getting it :D
    Thanks alot for your help!  

    Nice username! :)
    So yes, you are correct, the logical profiles would allow you to group different type of dynamically profiled devices and then reference that profile in your authorization rules. However, you won't see those logical profiles under the "Identity Group Details" section. You will need to leave that field blank. Instead, you need to look in the "second" condition box: expression > Endpoint > LogicalProfile
    Hope this helps!
    Thank you for rating helpful posts!

  • Logical AND in MDX Reporting Services Parameter

    Hi, I would like to implement logical AND on a cube parameter. I have seen examples of hard-coded logical AND in MDX.
    But I'm not sure how to apply this to a parameter's MDX dataset.
    Here is an example of the automatically generated MDX which uses logical OR:
    This is the drop down parameter:
    WITH MEMBER [Measures].[ParameterCaption] AS [Department].[Department].CURRENTMEMBER.MEMBER_CAPTION MEMBER
    [Measures].[ParameterValue] AS
    [Department].[Department].CURRENTMEMBER.UNIQUENAME MEMBER [Measures].[ParameterLevel] AS
    SELECT {[Measures].[ParameterCaption], [Measures].[ParameterValue],
    [Measures].[ParameterLevel]} ON COLUMNS
    , [Department].[Department].ALLMEMBERS ON ROWS
    FROM [MyCube]
    And the demo report dataset is:
    SELECT NON EMPTY { [Measures].[CompanyTbl Count] } ON COLUMNS,
    NON EMPTY { ([Product Level No].[Product Level No].[Product Level No].ALLMEMBERS ) }
    ( SELECT ( STRTOSET(@DepartmentDepartment, CONSTRAINED) )
    ( IIF( STRTOSET(@DepartmentDepartment, CONSTRAINED).Count = 1,
    STRTOSET(@DepartmentDepartment, CONSTRAINED), [Department].[Department].currentmember ) )

    I can see there just one parameter @[email protected] in your script. But if you had two parameters that should return resultset affected by two parameters. You can do it as either select from subselect from subselect.
    Example 1
    {x} ON COLUMNS,
    Or crossjoin between 2 parameters
    {x} ON COLUMNS,
    (SELECT StrToSet(@Param1)*StrToSet(@Param2) ON COLUMNS FROM

  • Logical database in adhoc query

    Hello All,
    Can anyone tell me what is the logical database in adhoc query?

    When you create a query , you have to select an infoset. Infoset can be considered as a source from which data is populated in the Query Fields.
    Infosets are created from Transaction SQ02.
    There can be four methods through which an Infoset can become a source of data:
    1.  Table join ( By joining two or more tables from Data dictionary)
         example: Joining tables PA0001 and PA0006 on Pernr to get a one resultant dataset
    2. Direct read of Basis Table ( Like PA0001 as a source for data in Infoset )
    3. Logical Database ( A Pre-written Program by SAP that extract data from clusters, tables taking care of authorizations and validity periods)
    Example : Logical database PNP, PNPCE (Concurrent Employement),PCH ( LDB for Personnel Development Data)
    Custom Logical DBs can be created in T_Code SE-36.
    4. Data Retrieval by a Program ( Custom code written by ABAP developers which will collect and process data) . This program has a corresponding Structure in data dictionary and the fields of this structure will be used in query)
    Reward Points, if helpful.

    Hi Friends,

    HR Logical Databases
    In Human Resources (HR), the following logical databases can be used as a data source for HR InfoSets:
    By selecting a logical database, you determine the HR data that can be reported on using an InfoSet.
    Logical Database PCH
    This logical database generally enables you to report on all HR infotypes. However, you are advised not to use this logical database unless you want to report on Personnel Planning data.
    Logical Database PNP (or PNPCE)
    Use logical database PNP to report on HR master data. It is possible to use logical database PCH to access this data, but PNP meets such reporting requirements more quickly because it is best suited to the task of selecting persons.
    Logical database PNP enables you to access HR master data and infotypes from Personnel Planning. For example, you have the following options:
    Reporting on the costs, number of attendees booked, and instructor for a business event on which an employee is booked
    Reporting on working time and planned compensation for a position that an employee occupies
    Reporting on the validity and proficiency of a qualification that an employee fulfils
    From a technical perspective, this means you can use PNP to report on all of the infotypes that exist for objects (infotype 1000) that have a direct relationship (infotype 1001) with the Person object.
    The ability to access infotypes from Personnel Planning using logical database PNP is a special feature that you can only use in the context of SAP Query and Ad Hoc Query. You cannot use this functionality for ABAP reports you programmed yourself.
    You can also use logical database PNP to report on data from Personnel Time Management (infotypes 2000 to 2999) and Payroll (special payroll infotypes for the USA and customer infotypes; for more information, access Customizing for the Human Resources Information System and see Payroll Results).
    Logical Database PAP
    Logical database PAP enables you to access data from Recruitment.
