|Title:||Presburger arithmetic, rational generating functions, and quasi-polynomials|
|Speaker:||Antonio Bonelli, University of Basilicata, Potenza, Italy|
|A Presburger formula is a predicate calculus formula with variables ranging over N, the set of natural numbers, that can be written using +, <, Boolean operations (and, or, not), and quantifiers (for all, there exists). We characterize the subsets of N^d that can be defined by a Presburger formula as exactly the sets that can be represented by a rational generating function. A geometric characterization of such sets is also given. These characterizations are from a recent paper by Kevin Woods.|
