*Foundations of Measurement,*confirmed the formal foundations for size, justifying the project of numbers to things by way of their structural correspondence.

Volume I introduces the exact mathematical effects that serve to formulate numerical representations of qualitative constructions. quantity II extends the topic towards geometrical, threshold, and probabilistic representations, and quantity III examines illustration as expressed in axiomatization and invariance.

**Parametric x ray radiation in crystals theory experiments and applications**

This systematic and finished monograph is dedicated to parametric X-ray radiation (PXR). This radiation is generated via the movement of electrons within a crystal, wherein the emitted photons are diffracted by way of the crystal and the radiation depth seriously depends on the parameters of the crystal constitution.

The structure (A1 x ^ 2 ) ^ ) ^ called an equally spaced, additive conjoint structure, if in addition to Axioms 1-4, the following axiom holds for all a{, b^e A{, i=l,2: 5. If αλ Jx bx and b2 J2 a2, then (ax, a2) ~ {bx, b2). The Ji relation means that at is strictly larger than bi (with respect to >{) and nothing lies between the two elements; thus, any c{ is either > t a{ or *

We express this by saying that transitivity is a necessary axiom. "Necessary" here means mathematical, not practical, necessity. An axiom is necessary if it is a consequence of the existence of the homomorphism which we are trying to establish. Reflexivity is also necessary in the sense of being a consequence of the representation of {A, >> in
