Independence-Friendly Logic : A Game-Theoretic Approach, Paperback / softback Book


Bringing together over twenty years of research, this book gives a complete overview of independence-friendly logic.

It emphasizes the game-theoretical approach to logic, according to which logical concepts such as truth and falsity are best understood via the notion of semantic games.

The book pushes the paradigm of game-theoretical semantics further than the current literature by showing how mixed strategies and equilibria can be used to analyze independence-friendly formulas on finite models.

The book is suitable for graduate students and advanced undergraduates who have taken a course on first-order logic.

It contains a primer of the necessary background in game theory, numerous examples and full proofs.
