Structural proof theory is a branch of logic that studies the general structure and properties of logical and mathematical proofs. This book is both a concise introduction to the central results and methods of structural proof theory, and a work of research that will be of interest to specialists. The book is designed to be used by students of philosophy, mathematics, and computer science. A special feature of the volume is a computerized system for developing proofs interactively, downloadable from the web and regularly updated.
