Mathematical Logic through Python

By Yannai A. Gonczarowski and Noam Nisan (Cambridge University Press, forthcoming)

The textbook "Mathematical Logic through Python" presents a new approach to teaching the material of a basic Logic course to undergraduate Computer Science students, bringing Mathematical Logic into the comfort zone of the ever-growing population of programming-savvy students by tapping into their unique intuitions and strengths.

The book's approach captures the essence of the mathematical analysis of Logic using a sequence of carefully designed programming projects in the Python programming language. Each chapter in the book provides the background for, explanation, implications, and mathematical treatment of an associated programming project. See the book's introduction ("Chapter 0" below) for more details on our unique pedagogic approach and its motivations.
