The Essence of Logic is an exciting new publication that provides a concise introduction to formal logic. Making little demands on previous mathematical knowledge, this comprehensive text prepares the reader for the analysis and application of logic techniques in computing. It can also be used for the study of mathematical logic in its own right. Extensive in its coverage, each new concept is gently introduced, and then reinforced by numerous exercises and examples. This practical approach quickly develops skills needed to apply logic in a wide range of computer science disciplines.

A gentle introduction to logic for undergraduate computing students.Beginning with Truth Tables, the reader is introduced to the concepts of Boolean Algebra, logical propositions and truth values. Propositional Logic is explored through using Semantic Tableaux, Natural Deduction and the Sequent Calculus. More formal axiomatic systems are examined and illustrated, and important theorems about these systems are presented. Properties of soundness, completeness and consistency are explained in terms of Propositional Systems; then concepts of resolution are introduced, with an eye towards their use in programming. The book then turns to First Order Predicate Logic, its theoretical underpinnings and uses.Undergraduate computer science and logic courses.About the Author:
