Beginning Mathematical Logic: A Study Guide

I’ve renamed the old Teach Yourself Logic study guide; it is now more aptly called Beginning Mathematical Logic: A Study Guide. And there is now a new version of Part I of the Guide (all 95 pages of it) which you can download from here. It’s taken some time to settle on a style for the expanded Guide (though in the end I have not worried too much about keeping the level of the “overviews” of various topics consistent in level), and also it’s a judgement call where to place e.g. a quick introduction to second-order logic.

If you read the PDF from within a browser (as opposed to downloading it and using a PDF reader) it seems best to use Firefox on a Mac. Because then, if you go back after clicking a link, you are returned to your place in the Guide: Safari returns you unhelpfully to the beginning of the Guide.

All comments/corrections gratefully received as always — but perhaps better to use email until I can sort out the comment handling on the blog. The comments will arrive in my admin dashboard but won’t be visible.

  1. Hi, in case it has went under your radar, I would like to suggest Stillwell’s “Roads To Infinity” as a very nice expository book that can be a good addition (and perhaps “The Real Numbers: An Introduction to Set Theory and Analysis” and “Reverse Mathematics: Proofs from the Inside Out”, which however only fit tangentially as projects)
