Shawn Hedman – – Oxford University Press. Primitive recursive functions are introduced, and general recursive functions are then defined by employ- ing an unbounded search operator. Bulletin of Symbolic Logic 13 4: Readers are given an introduction to the idea of types, atomic models, homogeneous models, prime models, countable saturated models and monster models.

A very brief sketch of stability theory concludes the chapter. Embeddings and the method of dia- grams are introduced.

Which is followed by a particularly clear introduction to ideas about computational complexity, leading up to the notion of NP -completeness. Wilfrid Hodges – – In Leila Haaparanta ed. Based on the author’s teaching notes at the University of Maryland and aimed at a broad audience, this text covers the fundamental topics in classical logic in an extremely clear, thorough and accurate style that is accessible to all the above.

As this summary of the book should make clear, Hedman covers an enormous quan- tity of material in his text — the coverage of model theory in particular is unusually broad. Chapter 4 begins with a proof of completeness for countable languages, following the method of Henkin.

Chapter 5 continues the model-theoretic vein begun in Chapter 4, including the char- acterization of countably categorical theories — the countable random graph appears here as a significant example. It should be noted that the particularly brisk account of second-order logic hedma a non-standard syntax and says nothing about Henkin vs full semantics.

The frst theorem for arbitrary languages is proved later, by a transfinite Henkin construction; as preparation, a brief introduction to set the- ory and cardinal arithmetic is included.
