A text for a second course in logic for graduate and advanced undergraduate students. This third edition has been corrected and contains thoroughly revised versions of the chapters on Ramsey and provability, with new exercises provided for three other chapters. There are also two new chapters dealing with undecidable sentences and on the non-existence of non-standard recursive models of Z.

Now in its fourth edition, this book has become a classic because of its accessibility to tudents without a mathematical background, and because it covers not simply the staple topics of an intermediate logic course such as Godel's Incompleteness Theorems, but also a large number of optional topics from Turing's theory of computability to Ramsey's theorem. John Burgess has now enhanced the book by adding a selection of problems at the end of each chapter, and by reorganising and rewriting chapters to make them more independent of each other.About the Author:
