The present volume contains a considered choice of the existing literature on Automath. Many of the papers included in the book have been published in journals or conference proceedings, but a number have only circulated as research reports or have remained unpublished. The aim of the editors is to present a representative selection of existing articles and reports and of material contained in dissertations, giving a compact and more or less complete overview of the work that has been done in the Automath research field, from the beginning to the present day. Six different areas have been distinguished, which correspond to Parts A to F of the book. These areas range from general ideas and motivation, to detailed syntactical investigations.

Martin-Löf Type Theory is both an important and practical formalization and a focus for a charismatic view of the foundations of mathematics. Per Martin-Löf's work has been of huge significance in the fields of logic and the foundations of mathematics, and has important applications in areas such as computing science and linguistics. This volume celebrates the twenty-fifth anniversary of the birth of the subject, and is an invaluable record both of areas of currentactivity and of the early development of the subject. Also published for the first time is one of Per Martin-Löf's earliest papers.

This volume presents the proceedings of the 7th International Workshop on Higher Order Logic Theorem Proving and Its Applications held in Valetta, Malta in September 1994. Besides 3 invited papers, the proceedings contains 27 refereed papers selected from 42 submissions. In total the book presents many new results by leading researchers working on the design and applications of theorem provers for higher order logic. In particular, this book gives a thorough state-of-the-art report on applications of the HOL system, one of the most widely used theorem provers for higher order logic.

This volume contains a refereed selection of revised full papers chosen from the contributions presented during the Third Annual Workshop held under the auspices of the ESPRIT Basic Research Action 6453 Types for Proofs and Programs. The workshop took place in Torino, Italy, in June 1995. Type theory is a formalism in which theorems and proofs, specifications and programs can be represented in a uniform way. The 19 papers included in the book deal with foundations of type theory, logical frameworks, and implementations and applications; all in all they constitute a state-of-the-art survey for the area of type theory.

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the Second International Conference on Logical Aspects of Computational Linguistics, LACL '97, held in Nancy, France in September 1997. The 10 revised full papers presented were carefully selected during two rounds of reviewing. Also included are two comprehensive invited papers. Among the topics covered are type theory, various types of grammars, linear logic, parsing, type-directed natural language processing, proof-theoretic aspects, concatenation logics, and mathematical languages.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 1998 International Conference on Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods, TABLEAUX'98, held in Oisterwijk near Tilburg, The Netherlands, in May 1998. The volume presents 17 revised full papers and three system descriptions selected from 34 submissions; also included are several abstracts of invited lectures, tutorials, and system comparison papers. The book presents new research results for automated deduction in various non-standard logics as well as in classical logic. Areas of application include software verification, systems verification, deductive databases, knowledge representation and its required inference engines, and system diagnosis.

This book presents a strictly refereed collection of revised full papers selected from the papers accepted for the TYPES '94 Workshop, held under the auspices of the ESPRIT Basic Research Action 6453 Types for Proofs and Programs in Bastad, Sweden, in June 1994. The 10 papers included address various aspects of developing computer-assisted proofs and programs using a logical framework. Type theory and three logical frameworks based on it are dealt with: ALF, Coq, and LEGO; other topics covered are metatheory, the Isabelle system, 2-calculus, proof checkers, and ZF set theory.

Dieser Band enthält die vier Arbeiten Freges: Begriffsschrift, eine der arithmetischen nachgebildeten Formelsprache, 1879; Anwendungen der Begriffsschrift, 1879; Über den Briefwechsel Leibnizens und Huggens mit Papin, 1881; Über den Zweck der Begriffsschrift, 1883; Über die wissenschaftliche Berechtigung einer Begriffsschrift, 1882. Frege's research work in the field of mathematical logic is of great importance for the present-day analytic philosophy. We actually owe to Frege a great amount of basical insight and exemplary research, which set up a new standard also in other fields of knowledge. As the founder of mathematical logic he severely examindes the syllogisms on which arithmetic is built up. In doing so, Frege recognized that our colloquial language is inadequate to define logic structures. His notional language corresponded to the artaivicial logical language demandes by Leibniz. Frege's achievement in the field of logic were so important, that they radiated into the domain of philosophy and influenced the development of mathematical logic decisively.

Paulo Ribenboim behandelt Zahlen in dieser außergewöhnlichen Sammlung von Übersichtsartikeln wie seine persönlichen Freunde. In leichter und allgemein zugänglicher Sprache berichtet er über Primzahlen, Fibonacci-Zahlen (und das Nordpolarmeer!), die klassischen Arbeiten von Gauß über binäre quadratische Formen, Eulers berühmtes primzahlerzeugendes Polynom, irrationale und transzendente Zahlen. Nach dem großen Erfolg von „Die Welt der Primzahlen" ist dies das zweite Buch von Paulo Ribenboim, das in deutscher Sprache erscheint.

Dieses Buch wendet sich zuallererst an intelligente Schüler ab 14 Jahren sowie an Studienanfänger, die sich für Mathematik interessieren und etwas mehr als die Anfangsgründe dieser Wissenschaft kennenlernen möchten. Es gibt inzwischen mehrere Bücher, die eine ähnliche Zielstellung verfolgen. Besonders gern erinnere ich mich an das Werk Vom Einmaleins zum Integral von Colerus, das ich in meiner Kindheit las. Es beginnt mit der folgenden entschiedenen Feststellung: Die Mathematik ist eine Mausefalle. Wer einmal in dieser Falle gefangen sitzt, findet selten den Ausgang, der zurück in seinen vormathematischen Seelenzustand leitet. ([49], S. 7) Einige dieser Bücher sind im Anhang zusammengestellt und kommen tiert. Tatsächlich ist das Unternehmen aber so lohnenswert und die Anzahl der schon vorhandenen Bücher doch so begrenzt, daß ich mich nicht scheue, ihnen ein weiteres hinzuzufügen. An zahlreichen amerikanischen Universitäten gibt es Vorlesungen, die gemeinhin oder auch offiziell als ,,Mathematik für Schöngeister'' firmieren. Dieser Kategorie ist das vorliegende Buch nicht zuzuordnen. Statt dessen soll es sich um eine ,,Mathematik für Mathematiker'' handeln, für Mathema tiker freilich, die noch sehr wenig von der Mathematik verstehen. Weshalb aber sollte nicht der eine oder andere von ihnen eines Tages den Autor dieses 1 Buches durch seine Vorlesungen in Staunen versetzen? Ich hoffe, daß auch meine Mathematikerkollegen Freude an dem Werk haben werden, und ich würde mir wünschen, daß auch andere Leser, bei denen die Wertschätzung für die Mathematik stärker als die Furcht vor ihr ist, Gefallen an ihm finden mögen.
