**Algebraic Logic**

by

**H. Andreka, I. Nemeti, I. Sain**

Part I of the book studies algebras which are relevant to logic. Part II deals with the methodology of solving logic problems by (i) translating them to algebra, (ii) solving the algebraic problem, and (iii) translating the result back to logic.
