Part 1: general theory
Discrete thoughts : essays on mathematics, science, and philosophy by Mark Kac( Book )

50 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a volume of essays and reviews that delightfully explore mathematics in all its moods - from the light and the witty, and humorous to serious, rational, and cerebral. Topics include: logic, combinatorics, statistics, economics, artificial intelligence, computer science, and applications of mathematics broadly. You will also find history and philosophy covered, including discussion of the work of Ulam, Kant, Heidegger among others. "...these papers reflect on mathematics and its influence on human society. They can help the specialist to notice what is going on around him, and they may lead educated people from other domains to a better understanding of mathematics. Many of these papers can advise educators how to form a modern mathematics education, which develops approved ideas and institutions...I admire the stimulating perspectives of the authors."--American Mathematical Society "'Mathematicians, like Proust and everyone else, are at their best when writing about their first love' ... They are among the very best we have; and their best is very good indeed. ... One approaches this book with high hopes. Happily, one is not disappointed."-- From The Mathematical Intelligencer "Mathematics is shaped by the consistent concerns and styles of powerful minds -three of which are represented here. Kac's work is marked by deep commitment and breadth of inquiry. Rota is the easiest of these authors to read...a delight: witty and urbane, with a clear and interesting agenda and an astonishing intellectual range. To read him is to be a part of a pleasant and rewarding conversation.-Mathematics Magazine

Computational logic and set theory : applying formalized logic to analysis by Jacob T Schwartz( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As computer software becomes more complex, the question of how its correctness can be assured grows ever more critical. Formal logic embodied in computer programs is an important part of the answer to this problem. This must-read text presents the pioneering work of the late Professor Jacob (Jack) T. Schwartz on computational logic and set theory and its application to proof verification techniques, culminating in the ÆtnaNova system, a prototype computer program designed to verify the correctness of mathematical proofs presented in the language of set theory. Taking a systematic approach, the book begins with a survey of traditional branches of logic before describing in detail the underlying design of the ÆtnaNova system. Major classical results on undecidability and unsolvability are then recast for this system. Readers do not require great knowledge of formal logic in order to follow the text, but a good understanding of standard programming techniques, and a familiarity with mathematical definitions and proofs reflecting the usual levels of rigor is assumed
