#### Computability and Logic

Cambridge University Press 2002; US$ 28.00Now in its fourth edition, this book on logic has been enhanced and rewritten. more...

#### Computable Structures and the Hyperarithmetical Hierarchy

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 175.00This book describes a program of research in computable structure theory. The goal is to find definability conditions corresponding to bounds on complexity which persist under isomorphism. The results apply to familiar kinds of structures (groups, fields, vector spaces, linear orderings Boolean algebras, Abelian p-groups, models of arithmetic). There... more...

#### Lambda-Calculus and Combinators

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 60.00This book gives an account of combinatory logic and lambda-calculus models. more...

#### Applied Proof Theory: Proof Interpretations and their Use in Mathematics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 85.47This is the first treatment in book format of proof-theoretic transformations - known as proof interpretations - that focuses on applications to ordinary mathematics. It covers both the necessary logical machinery behind the proof interpretations that are used in recent applications as well as – via extended case studies – carrying out some of these... more...

#### Structural Proof Theory

Cambridge University Press 2001; US$ 38.00A concise introduction to structural proof theory, a branch of logic studying the general structure of logical and mathematical proofs. more...

#### Theorems, Corollaries, Lemmas, and Methods of Proof

Wiley 2011; US$ 149.00 US$ 134.10A hands-on introduction to the tools needed for rigorous and theoretical mathematical reasoning Successfully addressing the frustration many students experience as they make the transition from computational mathematics to advanced calculus and algebraic structures, Theorems, Corollaries, Lemmas, and Methods of Proof equips students with the tools... more...

#### Invitation to Fixed-Parameter Algorithms

OUP Oxford 2006; US$ 139.99An application-oriented introduction to the highly topical area of the development and analysis of efficient fixed-parameter algorithms for hard problems. Aimed at graduate and research mathematicians, algorithm designers, and computer scientists, it provides a fresh view on this highly innovative field of algorithmic research. more...

#### Computability Theory

Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 9.99Computability Theory: An Introduction to Recursion Theory, provides a concise, comprehensive, and authoritative introduction to contemporary computability theory, techniques, and results. The basic concepts and techniques of computability theory are placed in their historical, philosophical and logical context. This presentation is characterized... more...

You'll get clear, concise, easy-to-follow instructions on the process of writing proofs, including the necessary reasoning... more...

#### The Nuts and Bolts of Proofs

Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 49.95The Nuts and Bolts of Proofs: An Introduction to Mathematical Proofs provides basic logic of mathematical proofs and shows how mathematical proofs work. It offers techniques for both reading and writing proofs. The second chapter of the book discusses the techniques in proving if/then statements by contrapositive and proofing by contradiction. It... more...
