Advances in Linear Logic (London Mathematical Society Lecture Note)by Jean-yves Girard
Synopses & Reviews
This volume gives an overview of linear logic in five parts: category theory; complexity and expressivity; proof theory; proof nets; and the geometry of interaction. The book includes a general introduction to linear logic that will ensure this book's use by the novice as well as the expert. Mathematicians and computer scientists will learn much from this book.
An overview of linear logic, this text should be of interest to mathematicians and computer scientists working in this area.
Based to a large extent on the Linear Logic Workshop held at Cornell, in June 1993, this volume aims to give an overview of linear logic that will be useful to mathematicians and computer scientists working in this area. The book is in five parts: categories and semantics; complexity and expressivity; proof theory; proof nets; and geometry of interaction. The whole book begins with a general introduction on linear logic which should ensure that this book can be used by the novice as well as the expert.
This volume gives an overview of linear logic that will be useful to mathematicians and computer scientists working in this area.
