Logic: A Very Short Introduction

Title: Logic: A Very Short Introduction | Author(s): Graham Priest | Publisher: Oxford University Press | Year: 2017 | Edition: 2 | Language: English | Pages : 152 | ISBN: 0198811705, 9780198811701 | Size: 18 MB | Extension: pdf   Logic is often perceived as having little to do with the rest of philosophy, and even less to do with real life. In this lively and accessible introduction, Graham Priest shows how wrong this conception is. He explores the philosophical roots of the subject, explaining how modern formal logic deals with issues ranging from the existence of God and the reality of time to paradoxes of probability and decision theory. Along the way, the basics of formal logic are explained in simple, non-technical terms, showing that logic is a powerful…

Numerical Linear Algebra: A Concise Introduction with MATLAB and Julia

Title: Numerical Linear Algebra: A Concise Introduction with MATLAB and Julia | Author(s): Folkmar Bornemann, Walter Simson | Publisher: Springer | Year: 2018 | Edition: 1st | Language: English | Pages : 153 | ISBN: 3319742213, 9783319742212 | Size: 3 MB  | Extension: pdf   This book offers an introduction to the algorithmic-numerical thinking using basic problems of linear algebra. By focusing on linear algebra, it ensures a stronger thematic coherence than is otherwise found in introductory lectures on numerics. The book highlights the usefulness of matrix partitioning compared to a component view, leading not only to a clearer notation and shorter algorithms, but also to significant runtime gains in modern computer architectures. The algorithms and…
