    Defense on the Offense

  • That is, to construct all the models of the theory of C it suffices to close C first under direct products, then under subalgebras, and finally under homomorphic images; that is, later closures do not compromise earlier ones provided P, S, and H are performed in that order.

    Algebra

  • Given a class C of algebras, we write P (C) for the class of all algebras formed as direct products of families of algebras of C, S (C) for the class of all subalgebras of algebras of C, and H (C) for the class of all homomorphic images of algebras of C.

    BIOLOGICAL MODELS

  • The rogue, which shared with all intellects the homomorphic trait of considering itself the proper matrix on which all other creatures should be modeled, could not believe that it was its own self which frightened her; no doubt it was its proxy, the sleeth.
