Logic, Logic, and Logic

**Logic, Logic, and Logic**

George Boolos was one of the most prominent and influential logician-philosophers of recent times. This collection, nearly all chosen by Boolos himself shortly before his death, includes thirty papers on set theory, second-order logic, and plural quantifiers; on Frege, Dedekind, Cantor, and Russell; and on miscellaneous topics in logic and proof theory, including three papers on various aspects of the Godel theorems. Boolos is universally recognized as the leader in the renewed interest in studies of Frege's work on logic and the philosophy of mathematics. John Burgess has provided introductions to each of the three parts of the volume, and also an afterword on Boolos's technical work in provability logic, which is beyond the scope of this volume. ...

“Logic Pro 8 Power!” provides a complete introduction and reference for Logic Pro in a volume less than a third the size of the Logic Pro 8 manual. It doesn’t attempt to cover everything, but it makes sure to cover the things that you are likely to run into while using Logic to make music, through simple, thorough, and complete explanations. The book also explores why Logic works the way it does, so you’ll not only learn the mechanics of how to do something, but you’ll really understand what you are doing so when you’re ready to explore on your own, you’ll be fully prepared and successful. After learning how to set up Logic, you’ll learn about the Transport and Arrange, how to record and edit audio and MIDI, how to mix down your song, and finally how to save your song and organize your files. The final chapters provide guidance on the more advanced features of Logic that you’ll need as you create more complex compositions and build a more involved project studio. There’s something here for Logic users of all skill levels—newbies will learn Logic front to back, while seasoned users will gain lots of tips and tricks as well as a handy desk reference. ...Logic, Logic, and Logic By George Boolos, Richard Jeffrey, John P.

Dynamic Logic (Foundations of Computing)

1 May 2011

**Dynamic Logic (Foundations of Computing)**

Among the many approaches to formal reasoning about programs, Dynamic Logic enjoys the singular advantage of being strongly related to classical logic. Its variants constitute natural generalizations and extensions of classical formalisms. For example, Propositional Dynamic Logic (PDL) can be described as a blend of three complementary classical ingredients: propositional calculus, modal logic, and the algebra of regular events. In First-Order Dynamic Logic (DL), the propositional calculus is replaced by classical first-order predicate calculus. Dynamic Logic is a system of remarkable unity that is theoretically rich as well as of practical value. It can be used for formalizing correctness specifications and proving rigorously that those specifications are met by a particular program. Other uses include determining the equivalence of programs, comparing the expressive power of various programming constructs, and synthesizing programs from specifications.This book provides the first comprehensive introduction to Dynamic Logic. It is divided into three parts. The first part reviews the appropriate fundamental concepts of logic and computability theory and can stand alone as an introduction to these topics. The second part discusses PDL and its variants, and the third part discusses DL and its variants. Examples are provided throughout, and exercises and a short historical section are included at the end of each chapter....

**Mathematical Logic for Computer Science 3rd edition**

2012 | ISBN: 1447141288 | PDF | 361 pages | 5 MB

Mathematical Logic for Computer Science is a mathematics textbook with theorems and proofs, but the choice of topics has been guided by the needs of students of computer science. The method of semantic tableaux provides an elegant way to teach logic that is both theoretically sound and easy to understand. The uniform use of tableaux-based techniques facilitates learning advanced logical systems based on what the student has learned from elementary systems.

The logical systems presented are: propositional logic, first-order logic, resolution and its application to logic programming, Hoare logic for the verification of sequential programs, and linear temporal logic for the verification of concurrent programs.

The third edition has been entirely rewritten and includes new chapters on central topics of modern computer science: SAT solvers and model checking.

There are 150 exercises with answers available to qualified instructors.

Documented, open-source, Prolog source code for the algorithms is available at http://code.google.com/p/mlcs/

Mordechai (Moti) Ben-Ari is with the Department of Science Teaching at the Weizmann Institute of Science. He is a Distinguished Educator of the ACM and has received the ACM/SIGCSE Award for Outstanding Contributions to Computer Science Education. His other textbooks published by Springer are: Ada for Software Engineers (Second Edition) and Principles of the Spin Model Checker.

Algebraic Methods in Philosophical Logic

26 April 2011** Algebraic Methods in Philosophical Logic ** by J. Michael Dunn, Gary Hardegree
OUP Oxford | 2001 | ISBN: 0198531923 | 488 pages | PDF | 23 MB
This comprehensive text demonstrates how various notions of logic can be viewed as notions of universal algebra. It is aimed primarily for logisticians in mathematics, philosophy, computer science and linguistics with an interest in algebraic logic, but is also accessible to those from a non-logistics background. It is suitable for researchers, graduates and advanced undergraduates who have an introductory knowledge of algebraic logic providing more advanced concepts, as well as more theoretical aspects. The main theme is that standard algebraic results (representations) translate into standard logical results (completeness). Other themes involve identification of a class of algebras appropriate for classical and non-classical logic studies, including: gaggles, distributoids, partial- gaggles, and tonoids. An imporatant sub title is that logic is fundamentally information based, with its main elements being propositions, that can be understood as sets of information states. Logics are considered in various senses e.g. systems of theorems, consequence relations and, symmetric consequence relations.
