Essential logic for computer science
Page R., Gamboa R., The MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 2018. 304 pp. Type: Book (978-0-262039-18-5)
The “for computer science” part of this excellent book’s title initially gave me pause, as it connoted for me a possible compromise of the “logic” part. As a matter of fact, the very opposite is the case here. The boo...
