Thomason – – Journal of Symbolic Logic 67 3: If you are unfamiliar with the tableaux method for structural proofs, then you will gain alot from reading this, as it provides a different perspective logix the more popular Hilbert-system approach. Part III continues coverage of first-order logic. Applications of Magic Sets Chapter X. Synthetic Consistency Properties 2.
