The material covers many important results from logic, pretty much from scratch. Talal Alrawajfeh rated it really liked it Sep 04, Joshua Macy rated it liked it Aug 03, However, if you have already read an entry-level presentation of first order logic e. The author has made this edition more accessible to better meet the needs of today’s undergraduate mathematics and philosophy students.
This goes very briskly at the outset. Enderton then at last introduces a deductive proof system pages into the book. The author died in enerton, but his webpages live on, including one with his own comments on his second edition.
Presburger arithmetic shown to be decidable by a quantifier elimination procedure, and shown not to define multiplication Robinson Arithmetic with exponentiation.
Never go for this textbook.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. It strikes me as a good book, meeting it again after a long gap, now in the guise of its second edition.
A Mathematical Introduction to Logic
A theory of natural numbers with just the successor function built in which is shown to be complete and decidable, and a decision procedure by elimination of quantifiers is given. Chapter Two FirstOrder Logic. ElsevierJan 23, – Mathematics – pages.
So what does happen in this chapter? Some might think this chapter to be slightly odd. We get a direct proof of compactness.
The exercises redeem it somewhat. A final chapter endfrton second-order logic and some other matters. If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you.

Trivia About A Mathematical In Material is presented on computer science issues such as computational complexity and database queries, with additional coverage of introductory material such as sets.
The first volume, by contrast, is not the most approachable first pass through its material. We are taken through a long catalogue of functions and relations representable in Robinson-Arithmetic-with-exponentiation, including functions for encoding and decoding sequences. For the usual motivation for separating off propositional logic and giving it an extended treatment at the beginning of a book endertpn this level is that this enables us to introduce and contrast the key ideas of semantic entailment and of provability enderron a formal deductive system, and then explain strategies for soundness and completeness proofs, all in a helpfully simple and uncluttered initial framework.
