It is intended to be a textbook of mathematical logic on a sophisticated level, presenting the reader with several of the most significant discoveries of the last ten or fifteen years. It begins with the definition of first order languages, proceeds through propositional logic and completeness theorems, and finally looks at the two incompleteness theorems of Godel. All results included in the book are very carefully selected and proved. The book is well-equipped with examples. This method ensures that readers gain a firmunderstanding of how logic interacts with mathematics and empowersthem to solve more complex problems.

The treatment is thoroughly mathematical and prepares students to branch out in several areas of mathematics related to foundations and computability, such as logic, axiomatic set theory, model theory, recursion theory, and computability. Its intended audience includes also all mathematicians who are interested in knowing what mathematical logic is dealing with. Please click button to get course on mathematical logic book now. Shashi mohan srivastava is a professor at the indian statistical institute kolkata india he is also the author of a course on borel sets gtm 180 and recipient of the indian national science academy medal for young scientists in 1981. The main purpose of this new edition is to provide a healthy first introduction to model theory, which is a very important branch of logic. Readers are then transitioned to set theory andinduction, and applications of number theory, relations, functions,groups, and topology are provided to further aid incomprehension. Topical coverage includes propositional logic,predicate logic, set theory, mathematical induction, number theory,relations, functions, group theory, and topology.

The new edition also introduces new topics, such as the notion of elementary class of structures, elementary diagrams, partial elementary maps, homogeneous structures, definability, and many more. Any mathematician who is interested in getting acquainted with logic and would like to learn Goedel's incompleteness theorems should find this book particularly useful. Feferman's theorem on Goedel formulas as axioms and Highman's theorem on groups defined by enumerable sets of generators and relations. The book includes a number of exercises for the student to attempt and examples from a variety of areas in mathematics for the student to review. Many of the approaches and topics covered are not standard parts of logic courses; they include a discussion of the logic of quantum mechanics, Goedel's constructible sets as a sub-class of von Neumann's universe, the Kolmogorov theory of complexity.

About the authors shashi mohan srivastava is a professor at the indian statistical institute kolkata india he is also the author of a course on borel sets gtm 180 and recipient of the indian national science academy medal for young scientists in 1981. Some proofs, such as the proof of the very important completeness theorem, have been completely rewritten in a more clear and concise manner. . In this new edition, many small and large changes have been made throughout the text. This is a short, modern, and motivated introduction to mathematical logic for upper undergraduate and beginning graduate students in mathematics and computer science.

It may also be of interest to students completing a Masters Degree in mathematics and desiring to embark on research in logic, as well as to teachers at universities and high schools, mathematicians in general, or philosophers wishing to gain a more rigorous conception of deductive reasoning. Most likely, logic is capable of justifying mathematics to no greater extent than biology is capable of justifying life. I am very grateful to Boris I. Its intended audience includes also all mathematicians who are interested in knowing what mathematical logic is dealing with. We lay emphasis on the semantic aspect of logic rather than on syntax; in other words, we are concerned with the connection between formulas and the multirelations, or models, which satisfy them. Readers are then transitioned to set theory andinduction, and applications of number theory, relations, functions,groups, and topology are provided to further aid incomprehension. In this context considerable importance attaches to the theory of relations, which yields a novel approach and algebraization of many concepts of logic.

Advanced upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, faculty.

Feferman's theorem on Goedel formulas as axioms and Highman's theorem on groups defined by enumerable sets of generators and relations. A number of informal digressions concerned with psychology, linguistics, and common sense logic should interest students of the philosophy of science or the humanities. The central notions are provability and computability; the emphasis of the presentation is on aspects of the theory which are of interest to the working mathematician.

Planning additional chapters for this second edition, I have decided to focus onmodeltheory,the conspicuousabsenceofwhichinthe? Many of the approaches and topics covered are not standard parts of logic courses; they include a discussion of the logic of quantum mechanics, Goedel's constructible sets as a sub-class of von Neumann's universe, the Kolmogorov theory of complexity. In this new edition, many small and large changes have been made throughout the text. This is a short, modern, and motivated introduction to mathematical logic for upper undergraduate and beginning graduate students in mathematics and computer science. The presenta tion here is fairly standard, except that semantics occupies a very domi nant position, truth is introduced before deducibility, and models of speech in formal languages precede the systematic study of syntax. Topics in the new chapter include ultraproduct of models, elimination of quantifiers, types, applications of types to model theory, and applications to algebra, number theory and geometry.

Some proofs, such as the proof of the very important completeness theorem, have been completely rewritten in a more clear and concise manner. The text has been well received and is still used, although it has been out of print for some time. Symbolizing sentences; logical inference; truth and validity; truth tables; terms, predicates, universal quantifiers; universal specification and laws of identity; more. The new edition also introduces new topics, such as the notion of elementary class of structures, elementary diagrams, partial elementary maps, homogeneous structures, definability, and many more. Topics in the new chapter include ultraproduct of models, elimination of quantifiers, types, applications of types to model theory, and applications to algebra, number theory and geometry. The first two chapters are devoted to predicate logic. It is intended to be a textbook of mathematical logic on a sophisticated level, presenting the reader with several of the most significant discoveries of the last ten or fifteen years.
