Set Theory in Philosophy of Mathematics. Velleman Limited preview – I truly enjoyed the journey from simple, ordinary proofs to proofs involving different sizes of infinities. The excercises provided were sometimes a little out of topic and could easily drown a casual reader, but overall a great book.


Selected pages Title Page. It is well written with lots of examples. An Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning.

Oct 06, William Schram rated it it was amazing Shelves: Still, the part that I got through almost to proofs section was very insightful and fun. I believe everyone who comes in contact with mathematical proofs should read the book. These concepts are used as the basis for a step-by-step breakdown of the most important techniques used in constructing proofs.

Applied Logic for Computer Scientists. Each section built off the previous one masterfully. All exercises were ordered from easy to moderate atructured the reader along the way to learn writing proofs for easier to challenging ones. To give students the opportunity to construct their own proofs, this new edition contains over new exercises, selected solutions, and an introduction to Proof Designer software.


An Invitation to Abstract Mathematics. The author shows how complex proofs are built up from these smaller steps, using detailed ‘scratch work’ approch to expose the machinery of proofs about the natural numbers, relations, functions, and infinite sets.
