This ebook offers what in our opinion constitutes the foundation of the speculation of the mu-calculus, regarded as an algebraic method instead of a good judgment. we have now wanted to give the topic in a unified means, and in a kind as basic as attainable. hence, our emphasis is at the generality of the fixed-point notation, and at the connections among mu-calculus, video games, and automata, which we additionally clarify in an algebraic approach. This e-book can be available for graduate or complicated undergraduate scholars either in arithmetic and machine technology. we have now designed this publication specially for researchers and scholars drawn to common sense in laptop technological know-how, comuter aided verification, and normal points of automata conception. now we have aimed toward amassing in one position the elemental result of the speculation, which are presently very scattered within the literature, and sometimes hardly ever available for readers. The presentation is self-contained, with the exception of the evidence of the Mc-Naughton's Determinization Theorem (see, e.g., . even though, we believe that the reader is already acquainted with a few easy automata conception and common algebra. The references, credit, and recommendations for additional studying are given on the finish of every bankruptcy.

In diesem Lehr- und Studienbuch wird gezeigt, in welchem Maße logische Strukturen das Rechtsdenken mitbestimmen. Dies geschieht anhand einer Darlegung der wesentlichen logischen Grundlagen und ihrer anschließenden Anwendung auf ausgewählte Beispiele auf dem Gebiet des Rechts. Das führt zu einem besseren Verständnis der juristischen Dogmatik und einer systematischen Durchdringung des jeweils relevanten Rechtsstoffes. Indem sich die Überlegungen zwischen den Disziplinen der Logik und der Rechtwissenschaft bewegen, tragen sie zu neuen Einsichten für beide Fächer bei. Behandelt werden aussagenlogische, klassenlogische, kombinatorische, modallogische, quantorenlogische, deontologische, relationenlogische, handlungslogische, syllogistische, fuzzylogische und paradoxe Strukturen des Rechts.
