Modal Logic: An Introduction to its Syntax and SemanticsIn this text, a variety of modal logics at the sentential, firstorder, and secondorder levels are developed with clarity, precision and philosophical insight. All of the S1S5 modal logics of Lewis and Langford, among others, are constructed. A matrix, or manyvalued semantics, for sentential modal logic is formalized, and an important result...   Mathematical Models of Spoken LanguageHumans use language to convey meaningful messages to each other. Linguistic competence consists in the ability to express meaning reliably, not simply to obtain faithful lexical transcriptions. This invaluable reference tool is the product of many years' experience and research on language and speech technology. It presents the motivations for,...

Frege borrowed the notation for functions from arithmetic, and enlarged the realm of applicability of a function beyond the domain of numbers. Then, supplanting the subject/predicate division, which was...   Science in the Age of Computer Simulation
Computer simulation was first pioneered as a scientific tool in meteorology and nuclear physics in the period following World War II, but it has grown rapidly to become indispensible in a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including astrophysics, highenergy physics, climate science, engineering, ecology, and economics. Digital computer...   The Bloomsbury Companion to Socrates (Bloomsbury Companions)
