The Handbook of Logic in Computer Science is a six-volume, internationally authored work which offers a comprehensive treatment of the application of logic to theoretical computer science. Each volume is comprised of an average of five 100-page monographs and presents an in-depth overview of one of the field's major topics. Current volume topics include mathematical and computational structures; forthcoming volumes will cover semantic structures, semantic modelling, theoretical methods in specification and verification, and logical methods in computer science. The result of five years of cooperative effort by some of the field's most eminent scholars, this series will undoubtedly be the standard reference work in logic and theoretical computer science for years to come.
`It is a comprehensive, authoritative, and advanced collection of chapters, by leading authorities in the fields covered.' Personal Computer World
'a major work of scientific publishing ... a highly detailed, authoritative and illuminating exposition of the field, and at the same time a challenging source of ideas for further exploration ... we are much indebted to the editors, authors and all those others who have worked for so many years on this substantial project.'
