Logic, Language and Computation, volume 2 cover

Logic, Language and Computation, Volume 2

edited by Lawrence S. Moss, Jonathan Ginzburg, and Maarten de Rijke

The fields of logic, linguistics and computer science are intimately related, and modern research has uncovered a wide range of connections. This collection focuses on work that is based on the unifying concept of information. This collection of nineteen papers covers subjects such as channel theory, presupposition and constraints, the modeling of discourse, and belief. They were all presented at the 1996 Conference on Information-Theoretic Approaches to Logic, Language, Information, and Computation.

Lawrence S. Moss is Associate Professor of Mathematics at Indiana University. Jonathan Ginzburg is a lecturer in linguistics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Maarten de Rijke is Assistant Professor and leader of the Computational Logic group at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation at the University of Amsterdam.
