monograph by Tarski and Givant (1987), for an overview see Givant
(1991). This, in essence, is the setting in which Tarski formalises set
theory, number theory and all of `classical mathematics'. (Note, QRA is
closely related to the class of heterogeneous relation algebras of
Schmidt and Stroehlein (1993) and the class of fork algebras that
emerged in South America.)

Eh? What exactly is a "fork algebra"? Is it connected
to knowledge representation? (the way you and Brink
connected Boolean Modules and Peirce Algebras to KL-ONE?)
