Independence-Friendly Logic : A Game-Theoretic Approach Paperback / softback
by Allen L. (University of Tampere, Finland) Mann, Gabriel (University of Helsinki) Sandu, Merlijn (Philips Research Laboratories, The Netherlands) Sevenster
Part of the London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series series
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.
