An Introduction to Symbolic Logic and Its Applications

A transparent, finished, and rigorous remedy develops the topic from hassle-free suggestions to the development and research of particularly complicated logical languages. It then considers the appliance of symbolic good judgment to the explanation and axiomatization of theories in arithmetic, physics, and biology.

Errors of Reasoning. Naturalizing the Logic of Inference

Error of Reasoning is the long-awaited continuation of the author's research of the common sense of cognitive platforms. the current concentration is the person human reasoner working less than the stipulations and pressures of genuine lifestyles with capacities and assets the wildlife makes to be had to him.

Quanta, logic and spacetime

During this elevated variation of Quanta, common sense and Spacetime, the logical base is significantly broadened and quantum-computational features of the strategy are delivered to the fore. the 1st components of this variation may well certainly be considered as delivering a self-contained and logic-based starting place for — and an creation to — the firm often called quantum computing.

Knowledge Representation and Reasoning Under Uncertainty: Logic at Work

This quantity relies at the overseas convention good judgment at paintings, held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in December 1992. The 14 papers during this quantity are chosen from 86 submissions and eight invited contributions and are all dedicated to wisdom illustration and reasoning less than uncertainty, that are center problems with formal synthetic intelligence.

If Fi is satisfiable then so is Gi . And since zi = zj and f is a reduction of SAT to S, Gj is also satisfiable; hence either F1 or Fj is satisfiable. Therefore dropping Fi from T maintains the invariant. The above argument shows that the size of T does not exceed a polynomial in |F | at any stage. Since the number of iterations of the algorithm is bounded by n ≤ |F |, the overall time complexity of the algorithm is polynomial. Hence SAT ∈ DP and therefore, DP = NP. The “searching-with-pruning” technique used in the above proof has been used profitably in many results subsequently.

Myhill) All complete sets for the class of computably enumerable sets are isomorphic to each other under computable isomorphisms. The non-trivial part in the proof of this theorem is to show that complete sets for the class of computably enumerable sets reduce to each other via 1-1 reductions. It is then easy to construct isomorphisms between the complete sets. In many ways, the class NP is the resource bounded analog of the computably enumerable class, and polynomial-time functions the analog of computable functions.
