Summary: We use the theory of institutions to capture the concept of a heterogeneous logical environment as a number of institutions linked by institution morphisms and comorphisms. We discuss heterogeneous specifications built in such environments, with inter-institutional specification morphisms based on both institution morphisms and comorphisms. We distinguish three kinds of heterogeneity: (1) specifications in logical environments with universal logic (2) heterogeneous specifications focused at a particular logic, and (3) heterogeneous specifications distributed over a number of logics.
