Description

A collection of entertaining and challenging logic puzzles which make accessible some of the most important and complex mathematical ideas of our time.

He also investigates combinatory logic, in an adventure which culminates in Godel's famous theorem. Written by the author of "Forever Undecided", this book will appeal to puzzle lovers and to students of logic and mathematics.show more
