Dear Paola,    (01)

I saw the word "logical" here, but no logic (plenty of maths though).    (02)

[MW] In this case I think logical was being used rather as in the sense of
"logical data model" as opposed to, say a physical data mode. It has
nothing to do with  logic as such.    (04)

If you mean the same sort of thing as this, then you are using logical in a
somewhat vacuous sense, and with no particular relationship to logic itself.    (05)

Could you give some examples of non-logical relationships for instance?    (06)

Regards    (07)
