Is there any hyperlink among the doctrine of logical fatalism and leading numbers? What do good judgment and major numbers have in common?The booklet adopts truth-functional method of learn practical homes of finite-valued Łukasiewicz logics Łn+1. leading numbers are outlined in algebraic-logical phrases (Finn's theorem) and represented as rooted timber. the writer designs an set of rules which for each major quantity n constructs a rooted tree the place nodes are normal numbers and n is a root. Finite-valued logics Kn+1 are certain that they've tautologies if and provided that n is a main quantity. it really is found that Kn+1 have an analogous practical houses as Łn+1 at any time when n is a primary quantity. hence, Kn+1 are 'logics' of major numbers. Amazingly, blend of logics of leading numbers resulted in uncovering a legislation of iteration of sessions of top numbers. in addition to characterization of best numbers writer additionally provides characterization, by way of Łukasiewicz logical matrices, of powers of primes, ordinary numbers, or even numbers.
