These virtues combine to earn it a third star. Not very helpful ways to approach the certain problems. Kenneth rated it liked it Jun 13, When I learned mathematical logic as an undergraduate years ago, I had the 1st edition of Enderton as the text in one course and Mendelson in another.

It could really benefit from mathrmatical samples and explanations. Material is presented on computer science issues such as computational complexity and database queries, with additional coverage of introductory material such as snderton.

Never go for this textbook.

We get a direct proof of compactness. Quadehar Sorcerer rated it it was amazing Sep 11, Eugene rated it really liked it Aug 08, But perhaps that is too much to ask, since mathematics educators are uniquely itnroduction academia not accustomed to contextualizing their material as part of a wider intellectual enterprise.

Talal Alrawajfeh rated it really liked it Sep 04, Thomas Ferguson rated it it was amazing Jun 08, My primary complaint is the manner in which rigor is emphasized in the text to the neglect rather than supplement of a coherent big picture — losing two full stars. The book also gives heavy emphasis to computational topics, and even gets into second-order logic in the final chapter — a very complete coverage for such a small introductory text.

Joe rated it really liked it Jun 29, Enderton Limited preview – After all, many alternative renditions of the formalism exist. We also get an exploration which can be postponed of the idea of proofs by induction and the Recursion Theorem, and based on these we get proper proofs of unique readability and the uniqueness of the extension of a valuation of atoms to a valuation of a set of sentences containing them perhaps not the most inviting things for a beginner endetton be pausing long over.


Jim D’Ambrosia rated it liked it Jul 17, Mathematical Logic Dover Books on Mathematics. Chapter Four SecondOrder Logic. I have perused chapter 4 with the faint hope that it ednerton be a second-order magma David rated it it was amazing Dec 09, The chapter ends with a little model theory — compactness, the LS theorems, interpretations between theorems — all rather briskly done, and there is an application to the construction of infinitesimals in non-standard analysis which is surely going to be too compressed for a first encounter with the ideas.

I like the level of introduction it is providing me with. High-minded ideas such as effectiveness and decidability appear briefly at the end of chapter one, so you don’t have to read pages before any “cool” things are presented, and there are occasional but too few sentences explaining what the goal of a formalism is before it is developed.

Matbematical two friends of mine in the course, similar issues have happened. I adopted this text because intrpduction its detailed and rigorous treatment of the predicate calculus, detailed and optimal treatment of the incompleteness phenomena, standard notation as developed by the Berkeley school. But, wisely, that chapter has been replaced by a much friendlier and more useful overview of basic set theory in the 2nd edition. The material covers many important results from logic, pretty much from scratch.

Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. The exercises redeem it somewhat.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. However, I do doubt that such an action-packed presentation is the best way to first meet this material. Chapter 1, which covers sentential propositional logic, also has a short section on applications to circuit design, providing some much-welcome motivation for the material.


I found it difficult to see the forest for the trees in this book. Some proofs are not fully spelled out, and, as several other reviewers noted, the writing style is pretty terse. For instance, in chapter 1, 10 pages are spent very early on induction and recursion theorems, to put intuitive ideas like “closure” on firm ground.
