This book offers a state-of-the-art introduction to the basic techniques and results of neighborhood semantics for modal logic. In addition to presenting the relevant technical background, it highlights both the pitfalls and potential uses of neighborhood models - an interesting class of mathematical structures that were originally introduced to provide a semantics for weak systems of modal logic (the so-called non-normal modal logics).

Produktbeschreibung
This book offers a state-of-the-art introduction to the basic techniques and results of neighborhood semantics for modal logic. In addition to presenting the relevant technical background, it highlights both the pitfalls and potential uses of neighborhood models - an interesting class of mathematical structures that were originally introduced to provide a semantics for weak systems of modal logic (the so-called non-normal modal logics).
In addition, the book discusses a broad range of topics, including standard modal logic results (i.e., completeness, decidability and definability); bisimulations for neighborhood models and other model-theoretic constructions; comparisons with other semantics for modal logic (e.g., relational models, topological models, plausibility models); neighborhood semantics for first-order modal logic, applications in game theory (coalitional logic and game logic); applications in epistemic logic (logics of evidence and belief); and non-normal modal logics with dynamic modalities.
The book can be used as the primary text for seminars on philosophical logic focused on non-normal modal logics; as a supplemental text for courses on modal logic, logic in AI, or philosophical logic (either at the undergraduate or graduate level); or as the primary source for researchers interested in learning about the uses of neighborhood semantics in philosophical logic and game theory.

Autorenporträt
Eric Pacuit is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Maryland, USA. Before coming to Maryland, Eric worked at Stanford University, USA; at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation at the University of Amsterdam, Netherlands; and at the Tilburg Institute for Logic and Philosophy of Science at Tilburg University, Netherlands. His research primarily addresses issues in interactive epistemology and group decision-making - two interdisciplinary areas that make use of ideas and techniques from logic (especially modal logic), philosophy, game theory and social choice theory. His research has been generously supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation and a VIDI grant from the NWO (the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research).

Rezensionen
"Neighbourhood frames offer an interpretation to systems of modal logic that generalises the more traditional relational frames. ... Complemented with the numerous pointers to the literature that it provides, the book will be a valuable source of information and practice for PhD students." (Éric Martin, zbMATH 1390.03001, 2018)
"Reading and writing a review of this wonderful book has been a pleasure. Knowing the basics of propositional modal logic may explain why I enjoyed reading it. The author has gathered and surveyed many papers in writing this book. This is a must-read for those who want to do research on neighborhood semantics--after having acquired a basic knowledge of modal logic." (Manoj K. Raut, Computing Reviews, February, 2019)
