I was trying to write a piece about why Elisabeth Brauss’s playing is so extraordinary, but rather failing. So I must return instead to a more familiar theme here (which regular readers will be as tired of as I am!). But with many thanks to those who e-mailed in last-minute comments and corrections, I’ve one last time gone through a complete version of Beginning Mathematical Logic: A Study Guide, making many corrections. You can download a final, final, draft version here (all x + 184 pages of it). I hope you like the wise addition to the very last page …
There are no major changes since the previous online version, but there’s been a fair amount of minor tinkering at the level of changing punctuation, adding a very few more footnotes, etc. It made a remarkable difference having a printed proof copy in book form to work from: all kinds of minor glitches hit the eye in a way they don’t onscreen or even in a stack of print-out.
So the plan is that I send off to get another proof copy for a final typographical check. And then, all being well, we are good to go, and there should be another Big Red Logic Book to buy by the end of next week. Start saving your pennies.
And if you’ve been meaning to let me know about some error you spotted in a previous version, do let me know if it is still there in this current version. But don’t delay!
Added Jan 28 Refresh your browser to download a version which has got the index linking corrected.
Added Jan 29 Half a dozen misleading internal links removed (see comments), and one typo corrected. Keep ’em coming …
Added Jan 30 Today’s version has improved handling of internal links; and silly thinko about cumulative hierarchy corrected.
Added Jan 31 Some tiny changes to make a few pagebreaks in Chapter 12 fall more nicely. One additional reading added to end of Chapter 9. And at this point, unless some egregious error is pointed out, I’m calling a halt to further tinkering. Famous last words.
