#### Computability, Complexity, Logic

Elsevier Science 1989; US$ 72.95The theme of this book is formed by a pair of concepts: the concept of formal language as carrier of the precise expression of meaning, facts and problems, and the concept of algorithm or calculus, i.e. a formally operating procedure for the solution of precisely described questions and problems. The book is a unified introduction to the modern theory... more...

#### The Lambda Calculus

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 133.00The revised edition contains a new chapter which provides an elegant description of the semantics. The various classes of lambda calculus models are described in a uniform manner. Some didactical improvements have been made to this edition. An example of a simple model is given and then the general theory (of categorical models) is developed. Indications... more...

#### The Moment of Proof

Oxford University Press 2000; US$ 49.99When Archimedes, while bathing, suddenly hit upon the principle of buoyancy, he ran wildly through the streets of Syracuse, stark naked, crying "eureka!" In The Moment of Proof , Donald Benson attempts to convey to general readers the feeling of eureka--the joy of discovery--that mathematicians feel when they first encounter an elegant proof.This... more...

#### Logic and Computation

Cambridge University Press 1990; US$ 60.00This book is concerned with techniques for formal theorem-proving, with particular reference to Cambridge LCF (Logic for Computable Functions). Cambridge LCF is a computer program for reasoning about computation. It combines the methods of mathematical logic with domain theory, the basis of the denotational approach to specifying the meaning of program... more...

#### A Transition to Abstract Mathematics

Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 89.95Constructing concise and correct proofs is one of the most challenging aspects of learning to work with advanced mathematics. Meeting this challenge is a defining moment for those considering a career in mathematics or related fields. Mathematical Thinking and Writing teaches readers to construct proofs and communicate with the precision necessary... more...

#### Theory of Computation

Wiley 2014; US$ 132.00Learn the skills and acquire the intuition to assess the theoretical limitations of computer programming Offering an accessible approach to the topic, Theory of Computation focuses on the metatheory of computing and the theoretical boundaries between what various computational models can do and not do—from the most general model, the URM... more...

#### Frege's Notations

Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 95.00A new approach to reading Frege's notations that adheres to the modern view that terms and well-formed formulas are any disjoint syntactic categories. On this new approach, we can at last read Frege's notations in their original form revealing striking new solutions to many of the outstanding problems of interpreting his philosophy. more...

#### Around and Beyond the Square of Opposition

Springer Basel 2012; US$ 89.95This book collects previously unpublished papers exploring the theory of oppositions based on Aristotelian foundations of logic, reflecting renewed interest and challenging re-interpretations which extend the original theory in breadth and depth. more...

#### Mathematischer Einführungskurs für die Physik

Vieweg+Teubner Verlag 2012; Not AvailableStudierende, die ein Physikstudium aufnehmen, brauchen zu Beginn vor allem eines: mathematische Grundkenntnisse. Da es sich hierbei zunächst um einen relativ beschränkten und charakteristischen Ausschnitt aus der Mathematik handelt, werden die benötigten Kompetenzen vor allem im Rahmen von Tutorien oder Arbeitsgruppen vermittelt. Dieser Einführungskurs... more...

#### Bounded Arithmetic, Propositional Logic and Complexity Theory

Cambridge University Press 1995; US$ 152.00Discusses the deep connections between logic and complexity theory, and lists a number of intriguing open problems. more...
