Overview

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 computer science students. The method of semantic tableaux provides a elegant way to teach logic that is both theoretically sound and yet sufficiently elementary for undergraduates. To provide a balanced treatment of logic. tableaux are related to deductive proof systems.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for undergraduate students of computer science, explaining mathematical logic as it is used in computer science, rather than, like most texts and courses, as it relates to higher mathematics. Assumes a year or two of basic computer science, but no mathematics beyond set theory, which is outlined in an appendix. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
