The first to show that the scope of application of Natural Deduction systems is far beyond the one usually considered
The first comprehensive presentation of hybrid deductive systems mixing Natural Deduction with Resolution
The first to label Natural Deduction systems for a wide spectrum of Temporal Logics
Provides a detailed presentation of problems connected with the formalization of Logics of linear time
Gives a detailed exposition of deductive systems for Hybrid Logics
This volume provides an extensive treatment of Natural Deduction and related types of proof systems, with a focus on the practical aspects of proof methods. The book has two main aims: Its first aim is to provide a systematic and historical survey of the variety of Natural Deduction systems in Classical and Modal Logics. The second aim is to present some systems of hybrid character, mixing Natural Deduction with other kinds of proof methods (including Sequent systems, Tableaux, Resolution). Such systems tend to be more universal and effective, because of the possibility of mixing strategies of proof search from different areas. All necessary background material is provided, in particular, a detailed presentation of Modal Logics, including First-Order Modal and Hybrid Modal Logics. The deduction systems presented in the book may be of interest to working logicians, researchers on automated deduction and teachers of logic.
