Highlights of the Year

This year we would like to mention two publications as highlights of the year.

  • The conference paper [10] got the best paper award at the International Conference on Formal Concept Analysis 2019 in Frankfurt, June 2019 (https://icfca2019.frankfurt-university.de/).

  • Classical properties of functions such as associativity, although algebraically easy to read, are hard to meaningfully interpret. In [18], Miguel Couceiro and colleagues showed that associative and quasi-trivial operations that are non-decreasing are characterized in terms of total and weak orderings through the so-called single-peakedness property introduced in social choice theory by Duncan Black. This enabled visual interpretations of the above mentioned algebraic properties, and the enumeration of such operations led to several, previously unknown, integer sequences in Sloane’s On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (http://www.oeis.org), e.g., A292932 , A292933 , and A292934 .
