Torben Braüner, Ph.D., dr.scient.
I am an Associate Professor of computer science at Roskilde University
where I am head of the research group
Programming, Logic and Intelligent Systems (PLIS).
See a biographical sketch.
Buy the book Hybrid Logic and its Proof-Theory
based on my dr.scient. thesis.
Read a review in Studia Logica. Excerpts from the review:
"...the present book is a coherent, unified, and very readable entity. ...
Throughout the discussion is clear, informative, and natural.
It can be recommended as a book to read, as well as to consult, after a basic exposure to hybrid logics. ...
The book ends with a somewhat philosophical discussion... I will not try to summarize the author's points.
I will say I enjoyed the discussion. And the book."
My main research interest is logic and the application of logic in computing as well as philosophy and psychology.
I am particularly interested in non-classical logics (mainly modal and hybrid logics).
See my entry in RUCforsk (Roskilde University's research database),
in particular the project Hybrid-Logical Proofs at Work in Cognitive Psychology
funded by the VELUX FOUNDATION.
I was principal investigator of the projects HyLoMOL (2005-2008) and HYLOCORE (2009-2013), both funded by the Danish Natural Science Research Council.
