Logic forms the basis of mathematics, and is hence a fundamental part of any mathematics course. In particular, it is a major element in theoretical computer science and has undergone a huge revival with the explosion of interest in computers and computer science. This book provides studentswith a clear and accessible introduction to this important subject. The concept of model underlies the whole book, giving the text a theoretical coherence whilst still covering a wide area of logic.

Editorial Reviews

"This text is based on a course to undergraduates and gives a clear and accessible introduction to mathematical logic. The concept of model provides the underlying theme, giving the text a theoretical coherence whilst still covering a wide area of logic. The first chapter considers propositionalcalculus; then Boolean algebras follow; Chapter 3 covers predicate calculus and this is followed by completeness theorems. Large numbers of examples appear throughout the text and each chapter concludes with a selection of exercises to reinforce the student's understanding. Answers to the exercisesare given in an appendix."--L'Enseignement Mathematique"I have always been especially fond of logic. The two-volume Mathematical Logic: A Course with Exercises is a comprehensive introductory course that is distinguished by clarity of exposition and a large number of exercises with thorough solutions. Each volume is about 330 pages long, 80 of which aresolutions!"The Bulletin of Mathematics Books
