#### Tracking Reason

Oxford University Press 2006; US$ 23.99When 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...

#### Mathematical Thinking and Writing

Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 107.00The 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...

#### Lectures on the Curry-Howard Isomorphism

Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 170.00The 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...

#### Handbook of Computability Theory

Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 200.00The chapters of this volume all have their own level of presentation. The topics have been chosen based on the active research interest associated with them. Since the interest in some topics is older than that in others, some presentations contain fundamental definitions and basic results while others relate very little of the elementary theory behind... more...

#### Handbook of Proof Theory

Elsevier Science 1998; US$ 235.00This 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...

#### 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...

#### Computability and Logic

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 28.00Computability and Logic is a classic because of its accessibility to students without a mathematical background. This fifth edition was first published in 2007. more...

#### Essays in Constructive Mathematics

Springer New York 2007; US$ 109.00This book aims to promote constructive mathematics not by defining it or formalizing it but by practicing it. This means that its definitions and proofs use finite algorithms, not `algorithms' that require surveying an infinite number of possibilities to determine whether a given condition is met. The topics covered derive from classic works of... more...

#### Computation and Logic in the Real World

Springer 2007; US$ 119.00This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third International Conference on Computability in Europe, CiE 2007, held in Sienna, Italy, in June 2007. The 50 revised full papers presented together with 36 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 167 submissions. Among them are papers corresponding to 12 plenary talks and papers... more...

#### The EM Algorithm and Extensions

Wiley 2007; US$ 153.00The only single-source??now completely updated and revised??to offer a unified treatment of the theory, methodology, and applications of the EM algorithm Complete with updates that capture developments from the past decade, The EM Algorithm and Extensions, Second Edition successfully provides a basic understanding of the EM algorithm by describing... more...
