Viewing hierarchies as combinatorial objects underlies
many important areas of current scientific investigation. Examples of areas
where this is the case are biology, evolutionary studies and taxonomy,
general classification theory, data/knowledge bases, cognitive models and
The mathematical study of hierarchies is being pursued in many disciplines,
such as computer science, statistics, biology, psychology, and of course
mathematics. Topics of interest are the
representation and enumeration of various types of hierarchies, the
comparison of hierarchies, constructing
hierarchies from various kinds of data, modeling of hierarchical behavior,
The purpose of this meeting is to bring together people from
different disciplines doing research
in these and other subjects of mathematical approaches to hierarchies
and their applications.
A refereed volume of the workshop proceedings is intended to be published in
the AMS-DIMACS Series on Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science.
