Logic and Computation: Interactive Proof with Cambridge LCF by Lawrence C. Paulson

By Lawrence C. Paulson

Good judgment and Computation is anxious with suggestions for formal theorem-proving, with specific connection with Cambridge LCF (Logic for Computable Functions). Cambridge LCF is a working laptop or computer application for reasoning approximately computation. It combines equipment of mathematical common sense with area conception, the root of the denotational method of specifying the that means of statements in a programming language. This publication comprises elements. half I outlines the mathematical preliminaries: simple good judgment and area conception. they're defined at an intuitive point, giving references to extra complex interpreting. half II presents sufficient aspect to function a reference guide for Cambridge LCF. it's going to even be an invaluable consultant for implementors of different courses in response to the LCF procedure.

The Logics of Social Structure (Structural Analysis in the by Kyriakos M. Kontopoulos

By Kyriakos M. Kontopoulos

During this ebook, the writer proposes a primary new method of the learn of 1 of the main relevant strategies in social research, that of social constitution. He opinions the best versions and argues that every is insufficient to the duty of explaining the complexity of buildings that make up society and the tactics through which those buildings are shaped and are interlinked. a brand new conceptualization of the techniques of societal formation is then offered, drawing on contemporary advancements within the actual, organic and cognitive sciences. This new conceptualization enables the multiplicity of tactics of structuration, which the writer refers to as logics, a few of which functionality on the person or "micro" point, others of which functionality on the organizational or "meso" point, and nonetheless others of which functionality on the society-wide, or "macro" point. the writer phrases this new conceptualization a thought of heterarchy, and it's the first actually finished thought of societal structuration.

General Recursion Theory: An Axiomatic Approach by Jens E. Fenstad

By Jens E. Fenstad

On the grounds that their inception, the views in good judgment and Lecture Notes in common sense sequence have released seminal works through top logicians. a few of the unique books within the sequence were unavailable for years, yet they're now in print once more. during this quantity, the 10th ebook within the views in good judgment sequence, Jens E. Fenstad takes an axiomatic method of current a unified and coherent account of the various and numerous elements of normal recursion thought. the most middle of the ebook supplies an account of the final thought of computations. the writer then strikes directly to express how computation theories connect to and unify different components of basic recursion concept. a few mathematical adulthood is needed of the reader, who's assumed to have a few acquaintance with recursion thought. This e-book is perfect for a moment path within the topic.

What Is Mathematical Logic? by C. J. Ash, J. N. Crossley

By C. J. Ash, J. N. Crossley

Publish 12 months note: initially released in 1972
-------------------------

This creation to the most principles and result of mathematical common sense is a major therapy aimed at non-logicians. beginning with a old survey of good judgment in precedent days, it strains the 17th-century improvement of calculus and discusses smooth theories, together with set thought, the continuum speculation, and different principles.

From 1972 edition.

Geomorphological Landscapes of the World by Christopher R. Burn (auth.), Piotr Migon (eds.)

By Christopher R. Burn (auth.), Piotr Migon (eds.)

Physical landscapes are essentially the most interesting elements of our Planet, which inform tales concerning the evolution of the outside of the Earth. This e-book offers up to date information regarding the geomorphology of the chosen ‘classic’ websites from around the globe and indicates the diversity of geomorphological landscapes as moulded by means of diversified units of approaches appearing over diversified timescales, from hundreds of thousands of years to days. the quantity is written via approximately fifty geomorphologists from greater than twenty nations who for a few years have researched a number of the designated sceneries on this planet. The thirty six chapters current every one continent of the area. They describe landscapes of other starting place, in order that the reader can know about the complexity of methods in the back of the sceneries.

This is an invaluable reference publication, linking geomorphology with international tasks fascinated with nature conservation.

Key themes:

Geomorphic processes

Geomorphology

Karst

Landscape

Landforms

Nature conservation

Tectonics

World Heritage

Piotr Migon is Professor of Geography on the collage of Wroclaw, Poland. He was once a Royal Society Fellow established on the collage of Oxford, united kingdom in 1995-1996, and a Fulbright Fellow established on the collage of California, Santa Cruz in 2003. He served because the Secretary of the foreign organization of Geomorphologists (IAG) in 1997-2001. presently he's a member of the IAG activity staff to reinforce cooperation among the IAG and the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature). His contemporary guides contain ‘Granite Landscapes of the area’ (Oxford collage Press, 2006), a textbook on geomorphology released in Poland (2006) and diverse papers in foreign journals, together with Geomorphology, Catena, Earth-Science Reviews.
