Artificial intelligence has recently turned to formal logic in the search for powerful yet well-behaved knowledge representation languages. This book covers the background of classical logic, including the major meta-theorems, and the state of the art in theorem proving including Bibel's connection method. Also covered are the advanced adaptations of classical logic now being used in artificial intelligence - temporal and modal logics, reason maintenance and intensional logic. First published in 1988, the book covers a wider range of topics than the currently available books in this area, and is more directly aimed at workers in artificial intelligence.

'An appropriate level of detail and technicality is well-balanced with a reasonable reflection of presented formal systems and techniques.' Zentralblatt fur Mathematik 'This is an excellent book. It is well written, covers a well thought out area of theoretical computer science, and is most appropriate for anyone interested in research, or a better understanding of techniques in theoretical artificial intelligence.' Australian Computer Journal
