Proof theory.

Abstract

"This introduction to the basic ideas of structural proof theory contains a through discussion and comparison of various types of formalization of first-order logic. Examples are given of several areas of application, namely the metamathematics of pure first-order logic (intuitionistic as well as classical); the theory of logic programming; category theory; modal logic; linear logic; first-order arithmetic and second-order logic." "In each case the aim is to illustrate the methods in relatively simple situations and then apply them elsewhere in much more complex settings. There are numerous exercises throughout the text." "In general, the only prerequisite is a standard course in first-order logic, making the book ideal for graduate students and beginning researchers in mathematical logic, theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence."--Jacket.
