Impressed by the simplicity and mathematical elegance of the tableau point of view, the author focuses on it here. After preliminary This completely self-contained study, widely considered the best book in the field, is intended to serve both as an introduction to quantification theory and as an exposition of new results and techniques in "analytic" or "cut-free" methods. After preliminary material on tress necessary for the tableau method , Part I deals with propositional logic from the viewpoint of analytic tableaux, covering such topics as formulas or propositional logic, Boolean valuations and truth sets, the method of tableaux and compactness. Part II covers first-order logic, offering detailed treatment of such matters as first-order analytic tableaux, analytic consistency, quantification theory, magic sets, and analytic versus synthetic consistency properties.

Raymond M. Smullyan is a well-known logician and inventor of mathematical and logical puzzles. In this book he has written a stimulating and challenging exposition of first-order logic that will be welcomed by logicians, mathematicians, and anyone interested in the field. Reprint of the Springer-Verlag, New York, edition. Raymond Smullyan — , mathematician, logician, magician, creator of extraordinary puzzles, philosopher, pianist, and man of many parts.

First-Order Logic

Life[ edit ] Born in Far Rockaway, New York to Eastern European Jewish parents originally spelling their name as Schmulian , Raymond showed musical talent from a young age, winning a gold medal in a piano competition when he was aged He left to study on his own, as the school did not offer similar courses in mathematics. He was also an amateur astronomer, using a six-inch reflecting telescope for which he ground the mirror. Logic problems[ edit ] Many of his logic problems are extensions of classic puzzles. Knights and Knaves involves knights who always tell the truth and knaves who always lie. This is based on a story of two doors and two guards, one who lies and one who tells the truth. One door leads to heaven and one to hell, and the puzzle is to find out which door leads to heaven by asking one of the guards a question.
