Science Logic and Mathematics. A Structured Approach by Daniel J.
This is a fantastic and gentle first exposure to proofs – the book walks you through basic logic, set theory, proof methods, basic number theory, etc. And though I didn’t quite understand everything, that is because I read the book cover-to-cover without pausing; but I intend on going back to the beginning and really apprlach through the many many! These concepts are used as the basis for a step-by-step breakdown of the most important techniques used in constructing proofs.
In this chapter author does not go into explaining the proof structure but writes in a mathematical rigour so that reader should be able to read those proofs and gets an overall idea about reading and writing proofs ot giving more focus to the topic than the proof technique. Sep 26, Reinier Tromp rated it really liked it.
It filled in a lot of gaps for me in my mathematics education. No background beyond standard high school mathematics is assumed. As someone who enjoys systematic-thinking, precision and rigour, I truly enjoyed the journey from simple, ordinary proofs to proofs involving different sizes of infinities. His Fantastical Mathematical Logical Life. I recommend this book very highly! Elements of Set Theory. The Philosophy of Mathematics. The excercises provided were sometimes a little out of topic and could easily drown a casual reader, but overall a great book.

Would you like us to take another look at this review? In most of the sections, author also explains about how he arrived at a solution which helped in understanding how to approach a problem. The book very logically and lucidly explained how proofs work and guides the j.vellean through interesting exercises in logic and useful topics such as set theory and countability. Originally written on my blog Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag.
For myself and I’m sure many others this book amounts to a course missing from the math curriculum. j.vwlleman
How to Prove It: A Structured Approach
How to write a great review. Similarly power of proof by induction was on display in solving many humongous problems.
Working through this book xaniel tremendously rewarding. I used this book for an introductory class I took on logic and set theory, and I really enjoyed using it. A Readable J.velle,an to Real Mathematics. Guides you step by step until you write a perfect proof, providing different methods.
Find it on Scholar. This is a good thing since most of the symbols might as well be from an alien language. People who bought this also bought. Lists with This Book. Want to Read saving…. A First Course in Analysis. The back contains several solutions, but you can find the rest of it online through some googling.
