Goal-Directed Proof Theory

Dov Gabbay, Nicola Olivetti, «Goal-Directed Proof Theory»
Springer | ISBN 0792364732 | 2000 Year | PDF | 1,32 Mb | 276 Pages

Goal Directed Proof Theory presents a uniform and coherent methodology for automated deduction in non-classical logics, the relevance of which to computer science is now widely acknowledged. The methodology is based on goal-directed provability. It is a generalization of the logic programming style of deduction, and it is particularly favourable for proof search. The methodology is applied for the first time in a uniform way to a wide range of non-classical systems, covering intuitionistic, intermediate, modal and substructural logics. The book can also be used as an introduction to these logical systems from a procedural perspective.

This book is written for computer scientists, mathematicians and philosophers, and anyone interested in the automation of reasoning based on non-classical logics. The book is suitable for self study, its only prerequisite being some elementary knowledge of logic and proof theory.

Sorry for being gone for the past two weeks. I was experiencing problems with my computer. Luckily everything is working now and I did not lose anything… including ebooks! I'll start posting some the requests people asked of me. Also as you may notice, I am boycotting rapidshare. I will NOT be using rapidshare links for any posts. They decided to close my account (which I had paid for!) for no reason. So now I lost money, all my RS points, and links to my files that I uploaded. So if anyone wants to join me and boycott the greedy monopoly… all is welcome!

As always I hope you enjoy this book. Please reply with any request for books similar to this one. Also please recommend any additional books related to this topic.
