New PDF release: Independence-Friendly Logic: A Game-Theoretic Approach

By Allen L. Mann

ISBN-10: 0521149347

ISBN-13: 9780521149341

Bringing jointly over 20 years of study, this publication provides an entire assessment of independence-friendly common sense. It emphasizes the game-theoretical method of common sense, based on which logical options resembling fact and falsity are most sensible understood through the idea of semantic video games. The booklet pushes the paradigm of game-theoretical semantics additional than the present literature by means of exhibiting how combined thoughts and equilibria can be utilized to investigate independence-friendly formulation on finite versions. The ebook is acceptable for graduate scholars and complex undergraduates who've taken a path on first-order common sense. It includes a primer of the required history in online game concept, quite a few examples and entire proofs

Example text

5 The calculations for i ∈ {2, 3} are similar. If i = 4, then we have 2 . 5 As an exercise, the reader should check that UII (μ∗ , τj ) = 3/5 for all 1 ≤ j ≤ 4. ) Thus (μ∗ , ν ∗ ) is an equilibrium. UI (σ4 , ν ∗ ) = ν ∗ (τ4 ) = 3 First-order logic We assume the reader is familiar with first-order logic. Nevertheless, we feel it worthwhile to collect the main definitions and results in the present chapter so that we may refer to them throughout the remainder of the book. Doing so will serve the dual purpose of making the book self-contained and preparing the reader for what lies ahead.

Yn ) is called a Skolem term. We abbreviate Sk∅ (ϕ) by Sk(ϕ). If we write SkU (ϕ) when ϕ is not in negation normal form, we really mean SkU (ϕ ), where ϕ is the negation normal form of ϕ. For example, let ϕ be the sentence ∀x∃y x < y ∨ ∃z(y < z) . Then Sk{x,y,z} (y < z) is y < z, Sk{x,y} ∃z(y < z) is y < g(x, y), Sk{x,y} x < y ∨ ∃z(y < z) is x < y ∨ y < g(x, y), is x < f (x) ∨ f (x) < g x, f (x) , is ∀x x < f (x) ∨ f (x) < g x, f (x) . Sk{x} ∃y x < y ∨ ∃z(y < z) Sk(ϕ) Skolemizing a first-order sentence makes explicit the dependencies between the quantified variables.

Formulas of the form (t1 = t2 ) or R(t1 , . . , tn ) are called atomic. It will sometimes be convenient to let the symbol ◦ range over the set of connectives {∨, ∧}, and let Q range over the set of quantifiers {∃, ∀}. By Q we mean the dual of Q, which is to say ∃ = ∀ and ∀ = ∃. When writing first-order formulas we will be flexible in our use of brackets. 4 Let ϕ be a first-order formula. The set of subformulas of ϕ, denoted Subf(ϕ), is defined recursively: Subf(ψ) = {ψ} (ψ atomic), Subf(¬ψ) = {¬ψ} ∪ Subf(ψ), Subf(ψ ◦ ψ ) = {ψ ◦ ψ } ∪ Subf(ψ) ∪ Subf(ψ ), Subf(Qxψ) = {Qxψ} ∪ Subf(ψ).
