As part of the discussion of CRMarchaeo it was realized the scope note of E81 Transformation needed a slight addition. It was also noted that the range of both P123 resulted in (resulted from) and P124 transformed (was transformed by) were incorrect.


OLD VERSION


E81 Transformation

Subclass of:  E63 Beginning of Existence
E64 End of Existence

Scope note: This class comprises the events that result in the simultaneous destruction of one or more than one E77 Persistent Item and the creation of one or more than one E77 Persistent Item that preserves recognizable substance from the first one(s) but has fundamentally different nature or identity.

Although the old and the new instances of E77 Persistent Item are treated as discrete entities having separate, unique identities, they are causally connected through the E81 Transformation; the destruction of the old E77 Persistent Item(s) directly causes the creation of the new one(s) using or preserving some relevant substance. Instances of E81 Transformation are therefore distinct from re-classifications (documented using E17 Type Assignment) or modifications (documented using E11 Modification) of objects that do not fundamentally change their nature or identity. Characteristic cases are reconstructions and repurposing of historical buildings or ruins, fires leaving buildings in ruins, taxidermy of specimen in natural history and the reorganization of a corporate body into a new one.
Examples: 
 the death and mummification of Tut-Ankh-Amun (transformation of Tut-Ankh-Amun from a living person to a mummy) (E69,E81,E7)

In First Order Logic:
  E81(x) ⊃ E63(x)
  E81(x) ⊃ E64(x)

Properties:
P123 resulted in (resulted from): E77 Persistent Item
P124 transformed (was transformed by): E77 Persistent Item

NEW VERSION

E81 Transformation


Subclass of:  E63 Beginning of Existence
E64 End of Existence

Scope note: This class comprises the events that result in the simultaneous destruction of one or more than one E18 Physical Thing and the creation of one or more than one E18 Physical Thing that preserves recognizable substance and structure from the first one(s) but has fundamentally different nature or identity.

Although the old and the new instances of E18 Physical Thing are treated as discrete entities having separate, unique identities, they are causally connected through the E81 Transformation; the destruction of the old E18 Physical Thing(s) directly causes the creation of the new one(s) using or preserving some relevant substance and structure. Instances of E81 Transformation are therefore distinct from re-classifications (documented using E17 Type Assignment) or modifications (documented using E11 Modification) of objects that do not fundamentally change their nature or identity. Characteristic cases are reconstructions and repurposing of historical buildings or ruins, fires leaving buildings in ruins, taxidermy of specimen in natural history and the reorganization of a corporate body into a new one.
Examples: 
 the death and mummification of Tut-Ankh-Amun (transformation of Tut-Ankh-Amun from a living person to a mummy) (E69,E81,E7)

In First Order Logic:
  E81(x) ⊃ E63(x)
  E81(x) ⊃ E64(x)

Properties:
P123 resulted in (resulted from): E18 Physical Thing
P124 transformed (was transformed by): E18 Physical Thing

OLD VERSION


P123 resulted in (resulted from)


Domain:  E81 Transformation
Range:  E77 Persistent Item
Subproperty of: E63 Beginning of Existence. P92 brought into existence (was brought into existence by): E77 Persistent Item
Quantification: many to many, necessary (1,n:0,n)

Scope note: This property identifies the E77 Persistent Item or items that are the result of an E81 Transformation.

New items replace the transformed item or items, which cease to exist as units of documentation. The physical continuity between the old and the new is expressed by the link to the common Transformation.
Examples:
 the transformation of the Venetian Loggia in Heraklion into a city hall (E81)  resulted in the City Hall of Heraklion (E22)
 the death and mummification of Tut-Ankh-Amun (E81) resulted in the Mummy of Tut Tut-Ankh-Amun (E22 and E20)

In First Order Logic:
  P123(x,y) ⊃ E81(x)
  P123(x,y) ⊃ E77(y)
  P123(x,y) ⊃ P92(x,y)

NEW VERSION


P123 resulted in (resulted from)


Domain:  E81 Transformation
Range:  E18 Physical Thing
Subproperty of: E63 Beginning of Existence. P92 brought into existence (was brought into existence by): E77 Persistent Item
Quantification: many to many, necessary (1,n:0,n)

Scope note: This property identifies the E18 Physical Thing or things that are the result of an E81 Transformation.

New items replace the transformed item or items, which cease to exist as units of documentation. The physical continuity between the old and the new is expressed by the link to the common Transformation.
Examples:
 the transformation of the Venetian Loggia in Heraklion into a city hall (E81) resulted in the City Hall of Heraklion (E22)
 the death and mummification of Tut-Ankh-Amun (E81) resulted in the Mummy of Tut Tut-Ankh-Amun (E22 and E20)

In First Order Logic:
  P123(x,y) ⊃ E81(x)
  P123(x,y) ⊃ E18(y)
  P123(x,y) ⊃ P92(x,y)


OLD VERSION

P124 transformed (was transformed by)


Domain:  E81 Transformation
Range:  E77 Persistent Item
Subproperty of: E64 End of Existence. P93 took out of existence (was taken out of existence by): E77 Persistent Item
Quantification: one to many, necessary (1,n:0,1)

Scope note: This property identifies the E77 Persistent Item or items that cease to exist due to a E81 Transformation.

It is replaced by the result of the Transformation, which becomes a new unit of documentation. The continuity between both items, the new and the old, is expressed by the link to the common Transformation.
Examples:
 the transformation of the Venetian Loggia in Heraklion into a city hall (E81) transformed the Venetian Loggia in Heraklion (E22)
 the death and mummification of Tut-Ankh-Amun (E81) transformed the ruling Pharao Tut-Ankh-Amun (E21)

In First Order Logic:
  P124(x,y) ⊃ E81(x)
  P124(x,y) ⊃ E77(y)
  P124(x,y) ⊃ P93(x,y)


NEW VERSION


P124 transformed (was transformed by)


Domain:  E81 Transformation
Range:  E18 Physical Thing
Subproperty of: E64 End of Existence. P93 took out of existence (was taken out of existence by): E77 Persistent Item

In First Order Logic:
  P124(x,y) ⊃ E81(x)
  P124(x,y) ⊃ E18(y)
  P124(x,y) ⊃ P93(x,y)
