The Handbook of Logic in Computer Science is a multi-volume work covering all major areas of application of logic to theoretical computer science. The Handbook comprises six volumes. Each volume contains five or six chapters, giving an in-depth overview of one of the major topics in thefield. It is the result of many years of co-operative effort by some of the most eminent frontline researchers in the area. It will no doubt be the standard reference work in logic and theoretical computer science for years to come - essential reading for all those interested in theoretical computerscience and logic. volumes cover the background to the subject in terms of mathematical and computational structures. The authors are chosen on an international basis and are leaders in the fields covered. The Handbook is a closely coordinated work which has been under development for the past fiveyears.
