Re: Richard J. Lipton • Logical Complexity Of Proofs Happy Peirce’s Birthday, Everyone ❢ We’ve been discussing aspects of proof style arising in connection with the complexity of proofs.  In previous posts we took up (1) the aspect of formal … Continue reading

Re: Richard J. Lipton • Logical Complexity Of Proofs Another dimension of proof style has to do with how much information is kept or lost as the argument develops.  For the moment let’s focus on classical deductive reasoning at the … Continue reading

Re: Richard J. Lipton • Logical Complexity Of Proofs The smoothest way I know to do propositional calculus is by using minimal negation operators as primitives, parsing propositional formulas into (painted and rooted) cactus graphs, and using the appropriate extension … Continue reading
