#### Math Proofs Demystified

McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 24.00Almost every student has to study some sort of mathematical proofs, whether it be in geometry, trigonometry, or with higher-level topics. In addition, mathematical theorems have become an interesting course for many students outside of the mathematical arena, purely for the reasoning and logic that is needed to complete them. Therefore, it is not uncommon... more...

#### Constructive Negations and Paraconsistency

Springer Netherlands 2008; US$ 183.45Here is an account of recent investigations into the two main concepts of negation developed in the constructive logic: the negation as reduction to absurdity, and the strong negation. These concepts are studied in the setting of paraconsistent logic. more...

#### Symbolic-Numeric Computation

Birkhäuser Basel 2007; US$ 106.40The growing demand of speed, accuracy, and reliability in scientific and engineering computing has been accelerating the merging of symbolic and numeric computations. These two types of computation coexist in mathematics yet are separated in traditional research of mathematical computation. This book presents 27 research articles on the integration... more...

#### Computability, Complexity, Logic

Elsevier Science 1989; US$ 72.95The theme of this book is formed by a pair of concepts: the concept of formal language as carrier of the precise expression of meaning, facts and problems, and the concept of algorithm or calculus, i.e. a formally operating procedure for the solution of precisely described questions and problems. The book is a unified introduction to the modern theory... more...

#### The Lambda Calculus

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 133.00The revised edition contains a new chapter which provides an elegant description of the semantics. The various classes of lambda calculus models are described in a uniform manner. Some didactical improvements have been made to this edition. An example of a simple model is given and then the general theory (of categorical models) is developed. Indications... 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...

#### Provability, Computability and Reflection

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 275.00Provability, Computability and Reflection more...

#### Logic and Computation

Cambridge University Press 1990; US$ 62.00This book is concerned with techniques for formal theorem-proving, with particular reference to Cambridge LCF (Logic for Computable Functions). Cambridge LCF is a computer program for reasoning about computation. It combines the methods of mathematical logic with domain theory, the basis of the denotational approach to specifying the meaning of program... more...

#### Theory of Computation

Wiley 2014; US$ 132.00 US$ 118.80Learn the skills and acquire the intuition to assess the theoretical limitations of computer programming Offering an accessible approach to the topic, Theory of Computation focuses on the metatheory of computing and the theoretical boundaries between what various computational models can do and not do—from the most general model, the URM... 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...
