The book begins with the basic concepts of logic and set theory, to familiarize students with the language of mathematics and how it is daiel.
In this chapter author does not go into explaining the vvelleman structure but writes in a mathematical rigour so that reader should be able to read those proofs and gets an overall idea about reading and writing proofs by giving more focus to the topic than the proof technique. I truly enjoyed the journey from simple, ordinary proofs to proofs involving different sizes of infinities.
In many proofs when no approach seems to be working, proof by contradiction comes porve the rescue. Revised Edition Professional Paperback Textbooks. The approach demonstrated in this book is vaniel very nice way to keep track of everything and make sure nothing goes amiss.

These concepts are used as the basis for a step-by-step breakdown of the most important techniques used in constructing proofs. And though I didn’t quite understand everything, that is because I read “How to Prove It” is a wonderful textbook on the different techniques one can use to prove mathematical theorems using first-year logic. Reviews “The book provides a valuable introduction to the nuts and bolts of mathematical proofs in general.
A Beginner’s Guide to Mathematical Logic. The excercises provided were sometimes a little out of topic and could easily drown a casual reader, but overall a great book. Introduction to the Representation Theory of Algebras. Submit a new text post. Cambridge University Press Amazon.
It can be a bit challenging, but develops the theory from the ground up and walks the reader through at the beginning. Or, get it for Kobo Super Points! The author shows how complex proofs are built up from these smaller steps, using detailed ‘scratch work’ sections to expose the machinery of proofs about the natural numbers, relations, functions, and infinite sets.
