ArrudaNewton C. Oddly shawj, Exercise 1. An uneven book in coverage too. The first deductive system offered is an extension of the bastardized sequent calculus for propositional logic, and hence is equally horrible. Chapter 4 begins with a proof of completeness for countable languages, following the method of Henkin.


The last two chapters ratchet up the difficulty again. Structures and First-Order Logic 3.

Computability and Complexity 8. Chapter 3 cohrse proof theory from a somewhat unusual angle, since the viewpoint here is closer to that of automated theorem proving than to the conventional logical approaches. Request removal from index.
