This volume constitutes the proceedings of the Seventh Latin American Symposium on Mathematical Logic, held July 29-August 2, 1985, at the University of Campinas in Brazil. Striking a balance between breadth of scope and depth of results, the papers in this collection range over a variety of topics in classical and non-classical logics. The book provides readers with an introduction to the active lines of research in mathematical logic and particularly emphasizes the connections to other fields, especially philosophy, computer science, and probability theory. The potential applicability of the mathematical methods studied in logic has become important because various areas--such as software engineering, mathematical biology, physics, and linguistics--now appear to need mathematical methods of the kind studied in logic.
