... ( L'axiomatique ) Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari 's term for the capitalist mode of production . An axiom is a proposition which cannot be proven true or false and from which one is able to construct a system of rules. Sport offers plenty of examples of axioms—for example, rugby is built on the axiom that the ball can never go forward from the hands, while soccer is built on the axiom that no player (except the goalkeeper) may touch the ball with their hands. There is no justification for these rules; they serve only to construct the necessary...

... method . Thinkers in a tradition including Euclid , Newton , Hilbert , Peano , Whitehead and Russell , and others have used the axiomatic method to present different subject-matters as formal and coherent theories, all propositions of which are deducible from a clearly specified set of initial assumptions. A fully formalized axiomatic system contains (i) primitive symbols, (ii) rules of formation distinguishing well-formed from ill-formed expressions, (iii) definitions, (iv) axioms , and (v) rules of inference establishing how theorems...

... semantics An approach to defining the semantics of programming languages in which the meaning of a language is given by describing the true statements that can be made about programs in that language using axioms and proof rules. Typically the statements are written in some suitable formal notation, such as predicate calculus or modal logic , and concern the states before and after running the program. For example, the formula expresses: if a state satisfies property p then there is an output state after executing program S , and it satisfies...

... specification A particular approach to writing abstract specifications for programs, modules, or data types. What distinguishes this approach is the fact that specifications are expressed purely in terms of the effects of operations characteristic of the system, and not in terms of their implementations or of the particular representation of any data involved. A specification in this style consists of a collection Σ ‎ of operation names, together with a collection T of axioms that express how these operations combine with each other. The operation...
