John Kalman, received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1955 with Professor G.W. Mackey as Thesis Director, is a professor emeritus at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. He has written more than 25 articles on logic, as well as on mathematics, algebra, and automated deduction. Kalman's work on computer-aided studies of shortest single axioms for classical equivalential calculus was published in the Notre Dame Journal of Formal Logic in 1978 -- the earliest occasion that a renowned journal devoted to logic published a paper in which automated reasoning played the key role. His research spawned numerous papers on the topic. In particular, his visit to Argonne National Laboratory in 1979 began a decade of collaboration that resulted in the answering of several open questions in equivalential calculus. Kalman also was one of the earliest and heaviest users of ITP, an automated reasoning program developed at Argonne and the predecessor of the current Otter.Review:
