A Many-Sorted Calculus Based on Resolution and Paramodulation emphasizes the utilization of advantages and concepts of many-sorted logic for resolution and paramodulation based automated theorem proving. This book considers some first-order calculus that defines how theorems from given hypotheses by pure syntactic reasoning are obtained, shifting all the semantic and implicit argumentation to the syntactic and explicit level of formal first-order reasoning. This text discusses the efficiency of many-sorted reasoning, formal preliminaries for the RP- and ?RP-calculus, and many-sorted term rewriting and unification. The completeness and soundness of the ?RP-calculus, sort theorem, and automated theorem prover for the ?RP-calculus are also elaborated. This publication is a good source for students and researchers interested in many-sorted calculus.

Growing Up, Coming Out, and Finding My Place (A Transgender Memoir)
Author: Jackson Bird
Pubpsher: Simon and Schuster
Category: Biography & Autobiography
An unflinching and endearing memoir from LGBTQ+ advocate Jackson Bird about how, through a childhood of gender mishaps and an awkward adolescence, he finally sorted things out and came out as a transgender man in his mid-twenties. When Jackson Bird was twenty-five, he came out as transgender to his friends, family, and anyone in the world with an Internet connection. Assigned female at birth and having been raised a girl, he often wondered if he should have been born a boy. Jackson didn’t share this thought with anyone because he didn’t think he could share it with anyone. Growing up in Texas in the 1990s, he had no transgender role models. He barely remembers meeting anyone who was openly gay, let alone being taught that transgender people existed outside of punchlines. Today, Jackson is a writer, YouTuber, and LGBTQ+ advocate living openly and happily as a transgender man. So how did he get here? In this remarkable, educational, and uplifting memoir, Jackson chronicles the ups and downs of growing up gender confused. Illuminated by journal entries spanning childhood to adolescence to today, he candidly recalls the challenges he faced while trying to sort out his gender and sexuality, and worrying about how to interact with the world. With warmth and wit, Jackson also recounts how he navigated the many obstacles and quirks of his transition––like figuring out how to have a chest binder delivered to his NYU dorm room and having an emotional breakdown at a Harry Potter fan convention. From his first shot of testosterone to his eventual top surgery, Jackson lets you in on every part of his journey—taking the time to explain trans terminology and little-known facts about gender and identity along the way. Through his captivating prose, Bird not only sheds light on the many facets of a transgender life, but also demonstrates the power and beauty in being yourself, even when you’re not sure who “yourself” is. Part memoir, part educational guide, Sorted is a frank, humorous narrative of growing up with some unintended baggage.
Maverick Inspector Aden Vanner returns to bust a London drug connection and save his own life in this thriller from the author of Sleep No More. Aden Vanner went from solider in the Falklands to London’s Detective Chief Inspector. Now, since being suspended, he’s been drowning his sorrows in whiskey and chasers. But his low gets even lower when he’s beaten outside a local pub by a couple of unknown assailants. It felt like payback for something. And with all the people Vanner has crossed, there’s plenty of motive in the streets. Now it’s his turn to get even—and where better than as new Detective Inspector of the Drug Squad. Superintendent Morrison doesn’t like the idea of a detective like Vanner back on the force. Especially when he’s got a grudge. But Vanner’s already got a lead on the gang that nearly slammed the life out of him, and it’s taking him into the underground of a drug cartel. Trouble is, it might not be so much a break in the case, as it is a trap. Informed by his research with the Metropolitan Police Department, Jeff Gulvin brings readers into criminal London with a level of detail that is both authentic and frightening. Sorted is the second novel in the Aden Vanner police-procedural trilogy, which also includes Sleep No More and Close Quarters. “Gulvin keeps your nose glued to the page.” —The Literary Review
