Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 235; 1999; 326 ppMSC: Primary 03; Secondary 00;
This volume presents the proceedings from the Eleventh Brazilian Logic Conference on Mathematical Logic held by the Brazilian Logic Society (cosponsored by the Centre for Logic, Epistemology and the History of Science, State University of Campinas, São Paolo) in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. The conference and the volume are dedicated to the memory of professor Mário Tourasse Teixeira, an educator and researcher who contributed to the formation of several generations of Brazilian logicians.
Contributions were made from leading Brazilian logicians and their LatinAmerican and European colleagues. All papers were selected by a careful refereeing processs and were revised and updated by their authors for publication in this volume.
There are three sections: Advances in Logic, Advances in Theoretical Computer Science, and Advances in Philosophical Logic. Wellknown specialists present original research on several aspects of model theory, proof theory, algebraic logic, category theory, connections between logic and computer science, and topics of philosophical logic of current interest. Topics interweave prooftheoretical, semantical, foundational, and philosophical aspects with algorithmic and algebraic views, offering lively highlevel research results.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in mathematical logic and foundations; computer scientists.
