Logic and Proof
by Lawrence C Paulson
Publisher: University of Cambridge 2002
Number of pages: 79
These lecture notes give a brief introduction to logic, with including the resolution method of theorem-proving and its relation to the programming language Prolog. Formal logic is used for specifying and verifying computer systems and (sometimes) for representing knowledge in Artificial Intelligence programs.

The book explores questions and terminologies concerning programs, computers, and computation. The exploration reduces to a study of mathematical theories, such as those of automata and formal languages, theories interesting in their own right.

We will first present the most standard computational challenges met in Bayesian Statistics, focusing primarily on mixture estimation and on model choice issues, and then relate these problems with computational solutions.
