#### The Nuts and Bolts of Proofs

Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 53.95The Nuts and Bolts of Proof instructs students on the basic logic of mathematical proofs, showing how and why proofs of mathematical statements work. It provides them with techniques they can use to gain an inside view of the subject, reach other results, remember results more easily, or rederive them if the results are forgotten.A flow chart graphically... 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...

#### 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...

#### 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Springer Basel 2012; US$ 56.73This book collects previously unpublished papers exploring the theory of oppositions based on Aristotelian foundations of logic, reflecting renewed interest and challenging re-interpretations which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; US$ 20.68Studierende, 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...

#### Linear Logic in Computer Science

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 116.00This book illustrates linear logic in the application of proof theory to computer science. more...

#### Le?niewski's Systems of Logic and Foundations of Mathematics

Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 96.34Offering an expansive critical commentary, this meticulous assessment of the ground-breaking work of the philosopher Stanislaw Le?niewski focuses exclusively on primary texts and explores the full range of work by a master logician of the Lvov-Warsaw school. 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...

#### The Road to Universal Logic

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 64.23This 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...
