  • Ways of Proof Theoryby Ralf Schindler

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 210.00

    On the occasion of the retirement of Wolfram Pohlers the Institut für Mathematische Logik und Grundlagenforschung of the University of Münster organized a colloquium and a workshop which took place July 17 ? 19, 2008. This event brought together proof theorists from many parts of the world who have been acting as teachers, students and... more...

  • Understanding Mathematical Proofby John Taylor; Rowan Garnier

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 59.95

    The 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...

  • Mathematical Analysis and Proofby D Stirling

    Elsevier Science 2009; US$ 72.95

    This fundamental and straightforward text addresses a weakness observed among present-day students, namely a lack of familiarity with formal proof. Beginning with the idea of mathematical proof and the need for it, associated technical and logical skills are developed with care and then brought to bear on the core material of analysis in such a lucid... more...

  • A Logical Introduction to Proofby Daniel Cunningham

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 59.95

    This unique textbook uses a ?logic-first? approach to train and guide undergraduates through transition courses bridging calculus and advanced mathematics. It also offers a valuable introduction to group theory and real analysis, including proof strategies. more...

  • Logic for Concurrency and Synchronisationby Ruy J.G.B. de Queiroz (Universidade Federal de Pernambuco Recife

    Springer 2003; US$ 115.00

    This text shows the state of the art in contemporary investigations of process calculi with mainly two major paradigms at work: linear logic and modal logic. more...

  • Proof, Logic and Formalizationby Michael Detlefsen

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 54.95

    The mathematical proof is the most important form of justification in mathematics. It is not, however, the only kind of justification for mathematical propositions. The existence of other forms, some of very significant strength, places a question mark over the prominence given to proof within mathematics. This collection of essays, by leading figures... more...

  • Tracking Reasonby Jody Azzouni

    Oxford University Press 2006; US$ 27.99

    When ordinary people - mathematicians among them - take something to follow (deductively) from something else, they are exposing the backbone of our self-ascribed ability to reason. This book investigates the connection between that ordinary notion of consequence and the formal analogues invented by logicians. more...

  • Lectures on the Curry-Howard Isomorphismby Morten Heine Sørensen; Pawel Urzyczyn

    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 170.00

    The Curry-Howard isomorphism states an amazing correspondence between systems of formal logic as encountered in proof theory and computational calculi as found in type theory. For instance, minimal propositional logic corresponds to simply typed lambda-calculus, first-order logic corresponds to dependent types, second-order logic corresponds to polymorphic... more...

  • Mathematical Thinking and Writingby Randall Maddox

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 107.00

    The ability to construct proofs is one of the most challenging aspects of the world of mathematics. It is, essentially, the defining moment for those testing the waters in a mathematical career. Instead of being submerged to the point of drowning, readers of Mathematical Thinking and Writing are given guidance and support while learning the language... more...

  • Handbook of Proof Theoryby S.R. Buss

    Elsevier Science 1998; US$ 235.00

    This volume contains articles covering a broad spectrum of proof theory, with an emphasis on its mathematical aspects. The articles should not only be interesting to specialists of proof theory, but should also be accessible to a diverse audience, including logicians, mathematicians, computer scientists and philosophers. Many of the central topics... more...
