This is a continuation of Vol. 7 of Trends in Logic. It wil cover the wealth of recent developments of Lukasiewicz Logic and their algebras (Chang MV-algebras), with particular reference to (de Finetti) coherent evaluation of continuously valued events, (Renyi) conditionals for such events, related algorithms.
Daniele Mundici received his Laurea degree in Physics from the University of Modena. He is currently Professor of Mathematical Logic at the University of Florence, and has been Professor of Algorithms and Computability at the University of Milan.   He has taught at universities in Europe, Africa and America. He serves as a managing ed...

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book is recommended for professional researchers and advanced students with an appropriate mathematical background. The book covers most of the recent developments in Lukasiewicz infinite-valued calculus and MV-theory. . The presentation is clearly structured and self-contained. The book consists of twenty chapters and two appendices, and a suitable bibliography is offered at the end of each chapter. Some of the chapters can be read independently from the others." (Manuela Busaniche, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 i)"The author of this book is one of the leading scientists in the field of MV-algebras, and in this work he presents his recent results, collecting them in a monograph that every scholar interested in many-valued logic should consult for his studies. The book is intended as a text for a second course on infinite-valued Lukasiewicz logic . . Each chapter focuses on a specific topic and chapters are almost independent from each other." (Brunella Gerla, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1235, 2012)
