The first chapter is an efficient introduction to propositional logic, going as far as proofs of completeness and compactness. Chapter 4 begins with a proof of completeness for countable languages, following the method of Henkin. To purchase, visit your preferred ebook provider.

A First Course in Logic
Reviewed by Alasdair Urquhart. Academic Skip to main content. This article has no associated abstract. Which is followed by a particularly clear introduction to ideas about computational complexity, leading up to the notion of NP -completeness. Entry for the Table of Contents: Dauben, and George J. This gives Hedman a completeness proof for derivations in his original calculus with a finite number of premisses, and he gives a compactness proof to beef this up to a proof of strong completeness.
Enderton – – Academic Press. And I do really like the general tone and approach at the outset. On the negative side, we could certainly quibble that Hedman is a bit murky about object-language vs meta-language niceties. The general theorem for arbitrary languages is proved later, by a transfinite Henkin construction; as preparation, a brief introduction to set the- ory and cardinal arithmetic is included.
Wilfrid Hodges – – In Leila Haaparanta ed. Beginners doing a first course in logic will again find this tough going. A very brief sketch of stability theory concludes the chapter. Sign in to use this feature. Sadly, the following Ch. Unusual features here are, first, the inclu- sion of the resolution method and secondly, a proof that the satisfiability problem for Horn formulas is solvable in polynomial time.
Space, Time, and Stuff Frank Arntzenius. Logic and Philosophy of Logic. It includes not just the usual introductory material in logic, but also a great deal that is usually covered in more advanced texts, such as the excellent and widely used book by Boolos and Jeffrey — now in a fourth edition thoroughly revised by John Burgess BSL IX Chapter 6 completes the mini-course in model theory pro- vided by Chapters 4, 5 and 6. Computability and Complexity 8.
Chapter 5 continues the model-theoretic vein begun in Chapter 4, including the lovic acterization of countably categorical theories — the countable random graph appears here as a significant example. The Incompleteness Theorems 9. Skolem normal form, Herbrand universes, unification and resolution for first order logic make up the bulk of the chapter, which concludes with a brief discussion coudse the programming language Prolog.
