Uncertainty is a fundamental and unavoidable feature of daily life; in order to deal with uncertaintly intelligently, we need to be able to represent it and reason about it. In this book, Joseph Halpern examines formal ways of representing uncertainty and considers various logics for reasoning about it. While the ideas presented are formalized in terms of definitions and t ...more

I found this book as very useful for students and researchers in social science and humanities. The math is not too complex, in the sense that it's mostly a formalization of ideas and concepts, instead of proofs, and it provides lots of useful explanations for people who are trying to understand this complex reality, filled with many uncertainties.

However, if you're really against anything mathematical, i suppose you won't be able to enjoy the full richness of this book.

Oooh, an exciting find among the bibliography of one of the best (and by far most broadly-sourced, an attribute CS research tends to sadly lack) papers I've read this month: Nain and Vardi's invited ATVA2007 effort "Branching Time vs Linear Time: Semantical Perspective" (stop for a second and go read this paper. Seriously, it's fantastic).

For what it's worth, I originally read about Nain+Vardi-2007 on λtU back in April, and just now got around to reading it...argh!

This is a great book and very well structured. There is a lot of math in it and if you are like me, you will need to grab a tutor of a friend to walk you through the heavy duty mathmatical terms.

The beauty of this book is that everything is presented to you for you to make the best decision on which method fits your fancy.

I expect to read this book a few times. I've already read the first two chapters twice and each time got something new out of it.
