Logic is sometimes called the foundation of mathematics: the logician studies the kinds of reasoning used in the individual steps of a proof. Alonzo Church's contributions to number theory and theories of algorithms and computability laid the theoretical foundations of computer science. This book is a basic source for understanding formal logic
