A First Course in Logic Paperback / softback
A First Course in Logic is an introduction to first-order logic suitable for first and second year mathematicians and computer scientists.
There are three components to this course: propositional logic; Boolean algebras; and predicate/first-order, logic.
Logic is the basis of proofs in mathematics - how do we know what we say is true? - and also of computer science - how do I know this program will do what I think it will?Surprisingly little mathematics is needed to learn and understand logic (this course doesn't involve any calculus).
The real mathematical prerequisite is an ability to manipulate symbols: in other words, basic algebra.
Anyone who can write programs should have this ability.
