Eighth Annual IEEE Symposium on

Logic in Computer Science (LICS 1993)

Paper: y=2x vs. y=3x (at LICS 1993)

Authors: Damian Niwinski Alexei P. Stolboushkin

Abstract

It is shown that no formula of first-order logic using linear ordering and the logical relation y=2x can define the property that the size of a finite model is divisible by 3. This answers a long-standing question that may be of relevance to certain open problems in circuit complexity
