Series Title: Center for the Study of Language and Information Publication Lecture Notes, 91
Description:

The papers collected in this volume exemplify some of the trends in current
approaches to logic, language and computation. Written by authors with
varied academic backgrounds, the contributions are intended for an
interdisciplinary audience. The first part of this volume addresses issues
relevant for multi-agent systems: reasoning with incomplete information,
reasoning about knowledge and beliefs, and reasoning about games. Proofs as
formal objects form the subject of Part II. Topics covered include:
contributions on logical frameworks, linear logic, and different approaches
to formalized reasoning. Part III focuses on representations and formal
methods in linguistic theory, addressing the areas of comparative and
temporal expressions, modal subordination, and compositionality
