Logic, Language and Computation, Volume 1

edited by Jerry Seligman and Dag Westerståhl

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. Some of the papers contribute to a general theory of information, others tackle specific problems using an information-based approach. All the papers were presented at the conference on Information-based Approaches to Logic, Language and Computation held at St. Mary's College, Moraga California in June, 1994. The conference is a direct successor of three conferences on Situation Theory and its Applications.

Jerry Seligman is an associate professor at the National Chung Cheng University in Taiwan. Dag Westerståhl is an associate professor of theoretical philosophy at Stockholm University, Sweden.
