DISCRETE MATHEMATICS

A Beginner’s Further Guide to Mathematical Logic PDF Free Download

A wealth of examples to which solutions are given permeate the text so the reader will certainly be active. The Mathematical Gazette This is the final book written by the late great puzzle master and logician, Dr. Raymond Smullyan. This book is a sequel to my Beginner’s Guide to Mathematical Logic. The previous volume deals with elements of propositional and first-order logic, contains a bit on formal systems and recursion, and concludes with chapters on Gödel’s famous incompleteness theorem, along with related results. The present volume begins with a bit more on propositional and first-order logic, followed by what I would call a fein chapter, which simultaneously generalizes some results from recursion theory, first-order arithmetic systems, and what I dub a decision machine. Then come five chapters on formal systems, recursion theory and metamathematical applications in a general setting.
