#### Understanding Mathematical Proof

CRC Press 2016; US$ 59.95The notion of proof is central to mathematics yet it is one of the most difficult aspects of the subject to teach and master. In particular, undergraduate mathematics students often experience difficulties in understanding and constructing proofs. Understanding Mathematical Proof describes the nature of mathematical proof, explores the various... more...

#### The Road to Universal Logic

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 70.04This second volume of a collection of papers offers new perspectives and challenges in the study of logic. It is presented in honor of the fiftieth birthday of Jean-Yves Béziau. The papers touch upon a wide range of topics including paraconsistent logic, quantum logic, geometry of oppositions, categorical logic, computational logic, fundamental logic... more...

#### Optimization

CRC Press 2015; US$ 142.95Choose the Correct Solution Method for Your Optimization Problem Optimization: Algorithms and Applications presents a variety of solution techniques for optimization problems, emphasizing concepts rather than rigorous mathematical details and proofs. The book covers both gradient and stochastic methods as solution techniques for unconstrained... more...

#### The Road to Universal Logic

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 70.04This is the first volume of a collection of papers in honor of the fiftieth birthday of Jean-Yves Béziau. These 25 papers have been written by internationally distinguished logicians, mathematicians, computer scientists, linguists and philosophers, including Arnon Avron, John Corcoran, Wilfrid Hodges, Laurence Horn, Lloyd Humbertsone, Dale Jacquette,... more...

#### Theory of Computation

Wiley 2014; US$ 132.00 US$ 118.80Learn 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...

#### Proof Theory

CRC Press 2014; US$ 99.95Although sequent calculi constitute an important category of proof systems, they are not as well known as axiomatic and natural deduction systems. Addressing this deficiency, Proof Theory: Sequent Calculi and Related Formalisms presents a comprehensive treatment of sequent calculi, including a wide range of variations. It focuses on sequent calculi... more...

#### Constructivism in Mathematics, Vol 2

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Studies in Logic and the Foundations of Mathematics, Volume 123: Constructivism in Mathematics: An Introduction, Vol. II focuses on various studies in mathematics and logic, including metric spaces, polynomial rings, and Heyting algebras. The publication first takes a look at the topology of metric spaces, algebra, and finite-type arithmetic and... more...

#### Sparse Grids and Applications - Munich 2012

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 151.77Sparse grids have gained increasing interest in recent years for the numerical treatment of high-dimensional problems. Whereas classical numerical discretization schemes fail in more than three or four dimensions, sparse grids make it possible to overcome the “curse” of dimensionality to some degree, extending the number of dimensions that can be... more...

#### Leśniewski's Systems of Logic and Foundations of Mathematics

Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 105.07Offering an expansive critical commentary, this meticulous assessment of the ground-breaking work of the philosopher Stanislaw Leśniewski focuses exclusively on primary texts and explores the full range of work by a master logician of the Lvov-Warsaw school. 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...
