Practical Foundations of Mathematics
by Paul Taylor
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1999
Number of pages: 588
Practical Foundations of Mathematics explains the basis of mathematical reasoning both in pure mathematics itself (algebra and topology in particular) and in computer science. In addition to the formal logic, this volume examines the relationship between computer languages and "plain English" mathematical proofs. The book introduces the reader to discrete mathematics, reasoning, and categorical logic.

This text will provide the readers with a free and accessible introduction to a very fascinating subject. The author is not a mathematician by profession, the book shows that pure mathematics is not that complicated once you get down to the rules.
