Classifying Interpretations

This chapter exposes criteria for characterizing interpretable compositions in terms of classifying spaces. This is a central issue since interpretability yields access to instrumental parameters for the physical ‘rendering’ of a compositional structure. In contrast to general classification, interpretable molecular structures are difficult to classify. We also review global enumeration theory as well as global American Set Theory.
