* This textbook/software package covers first-order language in a method appropriate for first and second courses in logic. The unique on-line grading services instantly grades solutions to hundred of computer exercises. It is specially devised to be used by philosophy instructors in a way that is useful to undergraduates of philosophy, computer science, mathematics, and linguistics.The book is a completely rewritten and much improved version of The Language of First-order Logic. Introductory material is presented in a more systematic and accessible fashion. Advanced chapters include proofs of soundness and completeness for propositional and predicate logic, as well as an accessible sketch of Godel's first incompleteness theorem. The book is appropriate for a wide range of courses, from first logic courses for undergraduates (philosophy, mathematics, and computer science) to a first graduate logic course.The package includes four pieces of software:Tarski's World 5.0, a new version of the popular program that teaches the basic first-order language and its semantics; Fitch, a natural deduction proof environment for giving and checking first-order proofs;Boole, a program that facilitates the construction and checking of truth tables and related notions (tautology, tautological consequence, etc.);Submit, a program that allows students to submit exercises done with the above programs to the Grade Grinder, the automatic grading service.Grade reports are returned to the student and, if requested, to the student's instructor, eliminating the need for tedious checking of homework. All programs are available for Windows, Macintosh and Linux systems.Instructors do not need to use the programs themselves in order to be able to take advantage of their pedagogical value. More about the software can be found at lpl.stanford.edu.The price of a new text/software package includes one Registration ID, which must be used each time work is submitted to the grading service. Once activated, the Registration ID is not transferable. *

Download Introductory Logic & Sets for Computer Scientists - N. Nissankemodern approach to teaching logic and set theory, equipping students with the necessary mathematical understanding and skills required for the mathematical specification of software. It covers all the areas of mathematics that are considered essential to computer science including logic, set theory, modern algebra (group theory), graph theory and combinatorics, whilst taking into account the diverse mathematical background of the students taking the course. In line with |

Download Meaning and Argument: An Introduction to Logic Through Language - Ernest Lepore"Meaning and Argument" shifts introductory logic from the traditional emphasis on proofs to the symbolization of arguments. It is an ideal introduction to formal logic, philosophical logic, and philosophy of language. Distinctive approach in that this text is a philosophical, rather than mathematical introduction to logic Concentrates on symbolization and does all the technical logic simply with truth tables and no derivations at all Contains numerous exercises and a |

Download Logic in Computer Science: Modelling and Reasoning about Systems - Michael Huth, Mark RyanRecent years have seen the development of powerful tools for verifying hardware and software systems, as companies worldwide realise the need for improved means of validating their products. There is increasing demand for training in basic methods in formal reasoning so that students can gain proficiency in logic-based verification methods. At the same time, the shift towards internet-based distributed computing creates the need for individuals who are able to reason |

Download Propositional And Predicate Calculus: A Model Of Argument - Derek GoldreiAt the heart of the justification for the reasoning used in modern mathematics lies the completeness theorem for predicate calculus. This unique textbook covers two entirely different ways of looking at such reasoning. Topics include: the representation of mathematical statements by formulas in a formal language; the interpretation of formulas as true or false in a mathematical structure; logical consequence of one formula from others; formal proof; the soundness and |

Download Mathematical Methods in Linguistics, Corrected second printing of the first edition (Studies in Linguistics and Philosophy) - Barbara H. ParteeElementary set theory accustoms the students to mathematical abstraction, includes the standard constructions of relations, functions, and orderings, and leads to a discussion of the various orders of infinity. The material on logic covers not only the standard statement logic and first-order predicate logic but includes an introduction to formal systems, axiomatization, and model theory. The section on algebra is presented with an emphasis on lattices as well as |
