  6. Mechanical Logic in Three-Dimensional Space

    By Gennaro Auletta

    The book explores how build a mechanical inferences by making use of arithmetic operations on a string of numbers representing statements. In this way logic is reduced to a branch of the combinatory calculus. It covers the field of traditional logic by showing that any kind of inference can be...
