Added by: Berta GrimauPublisher's Note: Structural proof theory is a branch of logic that studies the general structure and properties of logical and mathematical proofs. This book is both a concise introduction to the central results and methods of structural proof theory, and a work of research that will be of interest to specialists. The book is designed to be used by students of philosophy, mathematics and computer science. The book contains a wealth of results on prooftheoretical systems, including extensions of such systems from logic to mathematics, and on the connection between the two main forms of structural proof theory  natural deduction and sequent calculus. The authors emphasize the computational content of logical results. A special feature of the volume is a computerized system for developing proofs interactively, downloadable from the web and regularly updated.

Comment: This book can be used both in a general course on proof theory for advanced Undergraduates or for Masters students, and for specialized courses  for example, a course on natural deduction. Chapters 14 can be used as background reading of a general course. Chapter 1, 5 and 8 could be used in a course on natural deduction. The presentation is selfcontained and the book should be readable without any previous knowledge of logic.
