This introductory graduate text covers modern mathematical logic from propositional, first-order and infinitary logic and Gödel's Incompleteness Theorems to extensive introductions to set theory, model theory and recursion (computability) theory. Based on the author's more than 35 years of teaching experience, the book develops students' intuition by presenting complex ideas in the simplest context for which they make sense. The book is appropriate for use as a classroom text, for self-study, and as a reference on the state of modern logic.

About the author (2018)

Peter G. Hinman earned his B.A. in mathematics from Harvard University in 1959. He studied mathematics at the graduate level in Berkeley at the University of California. In 1966, under the guidance of Professor John Addison, he received his Ph.D. in Mathematical Logic with a particular focus on Recursion Theory. He is currently a professor at the University of Michigan where he has taught since 1966 and advised seven successful Ph.D. students. In 1978 he published his first book Recursion-Theoretic Hierarchies.
