Subject:
Computer Science, Computer Architecture and Logic Design

The contributions of C.S. Peirce to the early history of prepositional and predicate logic are well known. Much less well known, however, is Peirce’s subsequent work (for more than ten years) on ... More

Subject:
Computer Science, Computer Architecture and Logic Design

A major concern to the founders of modern logic—Frege, Peirce, Russell, and Hilbert—was to give an account of the logical structure of valid reasoning. Taking valid reasoning in mathematics as ... More

Subject:
Computer Science, Computer Architecture and Logic Design

Formal methods offer much more to computer science than just “proofs of correctness” for programs and digital circuits. Many of the problems in software and hardware design are due to imprecision, ... More
