About this product
- DescriptionAs a survey of many technical results in probability theory and probability logic, this mograph by two widely respected scholars offers a valuable compendium of the principal aspects of the formal study of probability. Hugues Leblanc and Peter Roeper explore probability functions appropriate for propositional, quantificational, intuitionistic, and infinitary logic and investigate the connections among probability functions, semantics, and logical consequence. They offer a systematic justification of constraints for various types of probability functions, in particular, an exhaustive account of probability functions adequate for first-order quantificational logic. The relationship between absolute and relative probability functions is fully explored and the book offers a complete account of the representation of relative functions by absolute ones. The volume is designed to review familiar results, to place these results within a broad context, and to extend the discussions in new and interesting ways. Authoritative, articulate, and accessible, it will interest mathematicians and philosophers at both professional and post-graduate levels.
- Author BiographyHughes Leblanc is retired Research Professor at l'Universite du Quebec a Montreal and the author of numerous books and articles on subjects related to logic and probablility. Peter Roeper is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at Australian National University.
