Logic For Everyone
by Robert A. Herrmann
2006
Number of pages: 124
Description:
This is an elementary book in Mathematical Logic that also covers all of the basic material in the propositional and predicate calculus. It is the result of the U. S. Naval Academy Mathematical Logic Course Project. Both the propositional and predicate calculus are presented in a unique manner. Enough material is covered so that certain topics in elementary model theory can be included and all mathematical proofs are of the most elementary nature requiring no specialized mathematical procedures. The propositional calculus is expanded considerably and many of the proof methods are used to establish the predicate calculus results. Consequnce operators are also introduced.
