Dear Reader:
Mathematical logic touches on many fields, from set theory to brain games--and our books cover the entire spectrum of the discipline. Dover's books on logic cater to everyone from general readers to graduate students and specialists--and this month's newsletter puts them all at your fingertips. You'll also find an interview with the legendary mathematician, puzzler, pianist, and magician Raymond Smullyan. We've also included free excerpts from three books by Mr. Smullyan. And, as always, you'll find a complete collection of our new and back-in-print math and science titles, including an important new addition to our NASA Historical Series.
Books on Logic
From the entertaining puzzle books of Raymond Smullyan and Professor Hoffmann to important works on natural deduction, undecidable theories, and Boolean algebra, our selection of affordable books on logic range far and wide. We've made it easy for you to browse them all.
Author Interview: Raymond Smullyan
Dover's Shelley Kronzek sits down with the man that Martin Gardner called "the most entertaining logician and set theorist who ever lived." In a fun and fascinating interview, Smullyan talks about how he got started writing puzzle books and what is on tap for the future.
New & Back-in-Print Titles
What's new to the Dover math and science list? More than 20 titles! Not only have we just published such works as Before This Decade Is Out: Personal Reflections on the Apollo Program and A First Course in Graph Theory by Gary Chartrand and Ping Zhang, you can choose from a variety of Back-in-Print classics.
Free Book Excerpts
After you've read Shelley Kronzek's interview with Raymond Smullyan, try your hand at puzzles from two of his books, Alice in Puzzle-Land: A Carrollian Tale for Children Under Eighty and The Chess Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes: Fifty Tantalizing Problems of Chess Detection. You can also read pages from his elegant survey of set theory.
Until next month,
John Grafton
Senior Editor
