Logic

I can live with this article in its present form. But I can't find any policy that says that you can't link outside the main namespace. It does make sense that you wouldn't link to the Wikipedia or Help namespaces, because those aren't part of the reference. But Category? If I'm wrong, please point me to the policy I'm wrong about. ---Isaac R 18:35, 20 May 2005 (UTC)

It's not exactly policy, but the reason for it is given in Wikipedia:Avoid self-references. In this case you were linking to a category that was already on the page because it appears in the category in the usual way; thus the link was duplicate as well as breaking those syndicates of WP that do not use the categories namespace. --- Charles Stewart 18:54, 20 May 2005 (UTC)

Organisation of this article[edit]

In my opinion, the description of the kind of topics we have should be as concise as possible, so that it is useful as a definition of what logic in computer science. As it stands, it does not serve this purpose. I propose that we start a structured List of logic in computer science topics that covers all of the articles that we judge to fall under this heading, and then try to distill down the current list of topics, perhaps changing the name to list of areas. --- Charles Stewart 16:54, 15 December 2005 (UTC)


I have added several topics that shouldn't be missing in an article about logic in cs. I agree that now (but probably already before) the article lacks a concise definition of logic in cs. However, I do not think that the article has to be necessarily split up. One possibility would to start with a concise general definition, and then list the various aspects in more detail.

Pretty amateurish[edit]

This article is rather uneven in its coverage and seems rather too focused on AI. It fails to cover many other significant applications including almost everything related to computer programming, like type systems, formal verification (of programs), etc. Never mind finite model theory and its relation to computational complexity. 86.127.138.67 (talk) 02:24, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

I see verfication is mentioned, but with KBSA as prime example. KBSA is a pretty obscure paper (~1xx citations), compared to say Hoare logic, which has some 5K citations. 86.127.138.67 (talk) 02:41, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

The old version, before the rewrite by a certain self-proclaimed mad scientist, actually had a much better outline, albeit telegraphic. 86.127.138.67 (talk) 16:09, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
