#### Logic for Concurrency and Synchronisation

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 165.36The study of information-based actions and processes has been a vibrant - terface between logic and computer science for several decades now. Indeed, several natural perspectives come together here. On the one hand, logical s- tems may be used to describe the dynamics of arbitrary computational p- cesses – as in the many sophisticated process logics... more...

#### Proof, Logic and Formalization

Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 54.95The 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 Reason

Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 29.99When 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. Jody Azzouni investigates the connection between that ordinary notion of consequence and the formal analogues invented by logicians. One claim of the book is that, despite... 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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$ 106.30He [Kronecker] was, in fact, attempting to describe and to initiate a new branch of mathematics, which would contain both number theory and alge braic geometry as special cases.—Andre Weil [62] This book is about mathematics, not the history or philosophy of mathemat ics. Still, history and philosophy were prominent among my motives for writing it,... more...

#### The EM Algorithm and Extensions

Wiley 2007; US$ 158.00 US$ 142.20The 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... more...
