About the Authors
  • Artificial intelligence has recently turned to formal logic in the search for powerful yet well-behaved knowledge representation languages. This book covers the background of classical logic, including the major meta-theorems, and the state of the art in theorem proving including Bibel's connection method. Also covered are the advanced adaptations of classical logic now being used in artificial intelligence - temporal and modal logics, reason maintenance and intensional logic. First published in 1988, the book covers a wider range of topics than the currently available books in this area, and is more directly aimed at workers in artificial intelligence.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'An appropriate level of detail and technicality is well-balanced with a reasonable reflection of presented formal systems and techniques.' Zentralblatt fur Mathematik

    'This is an excellent book. It is well written, covers a well thought out area of theoretical computer science, and is most appropriate for anyone interested in research, or a better understanding of techniques in theoretical artificial intelligence.' Australian Computer Journal
