1. “Logic in Computer Science: Modelling and Reasoning about Systems” by Michael Huth and Mark Ryan

“Logic in Computer Science: Modelling and Reasoning about Systems” Book Review: This book offers detailed explanations to a variety of fundamental topics in formal computer science logic. It presents the basics of model checking in a simple and concise way. All the concepts are introduced with concrete examples to explain their practical applications. The book is suitable for computer science and engineering students who have prerequisite knowledge regarding computer science.

2. “Logics for Computer Science” by Arindama Singh

“Logics for Computer Science” Book Review: This book deals with the basic concepts and techniques of logic for and in Computer Science. The initial few chapters deal with the logic of propositions, first order logic, and modal logics. The author has also analyzed the various approaches to the proof theory of the logics including axiomatic systems, analytic tableau, natural deduction systems, Gentzen systems, and resolutions in great detail. Along with a detailed discussion on verification of programs, the author also deals with intuitionistic logic, default logic, autoepistemic logic, Łukasiewicz logic, and fuzzy logic. The book is suitable for students from computer science, mathematics or philosophy backgrounds.

3. “Mathematical Logic for Computer Science” by M Ben-Ari

“Mathematical Logic for Computer Science” Book Review: This book explains mathematical logic by means of a method of semantic tableaux for computer science students. Various logical systems including propositional logic, first-order logic, resolution & its application to logic programming, Hoare logic for the verification of sequential programs, and linear temporal logic for the verification of concurrent programs have been detailed thoroughly. New chapters on central topics of modern computer science, SAT solvers and model checking, are included along with numerous exercises and illustrations.

4. “Introduction to Mathematical Logic” by E Mendelson

“Introduction to Mathematical Logic” Book Review: This book explores the principal topics of mathematical logic – propositional logic, first-order logic, first-order number theory, axiomatic set theory, and the theory of computability. A separate section covers all the basic ideas and results about non-standard models of number theory. Besides these, the major results of Godel, Church, Kleene, Rosser, and Turing are also discussed in great detail. This book is suitable for students and professionals who have prerequisite knowledge on abstract mathematical thinking.

5. “Logic for Programming and Automated Reasoning” by Voronkov Parigot Voronkov Parigot

“Logic for Programming and Automated Reasoning” Book Review: This volume is a subseries of Lecture Notes in Computer Science which were presented at the 6th International Conference on Logic for Programming and Automated Reasoning, Tbilisi, Georgia, September 1999. It contains reports about new developments in artificial intelligence research and teaching, quickly, informally, and at a high level. This book can be referred to by students and professionals from computer science and engineering backgrounds.

6. “Automated Reasoning in Higher-Order Logic” by Brown

“Automated Reasoning in Higher-Order Logic” Book Review: This book integrates a theoretical analysis of fragments of higher-order logic with a complete automated search procedure for an extensional form of higher-order logic. The first part of the book provides a detailed presentation of the theory (syntax and semantics) of fragments of higher-order logic, whereas the second part deals with an automated proof procedure for extensional type theory. This book can be referred to by researchers in higher-order logic/ theorem proving and programmers implementing/ extending higher-order search procedures.

7. “Handbook of Automated Reasoning” by Andrei Voronkov A Voronkov A Robinson
