Abstract

The aim of this book is to give a formal, objective and above all precise analysis of the language used by mathematicians in textbooks and papers. Our analysis will closely parallel the analyses of human languages by syntacticians and semanticians in the generative tradition. In particular, it will let us take mathematical sentences, determine their syntactic structure, and extract their underlying meaning in an appropriate logic.
