Multi-valued logics

Giovanni Panti (University of Udine Department of Mathematics and Computer Science) wrote a nice survey of the subject for the Handbook of Defensible Reasoning and Uncertainty Management Systems (D. Gabbay and P. Smets eds., Kluwer, 25-74, 1998). It's available via his papers' page:
Giovanni Panti : Multi-valued logics (General survey. Some material on the proof theoretic side is included).

Added (July 2006):
Sigfried Gottwald : Many-Valued Logics (General survey with special emphasis on t-norms and fuzzy logic. Algebraic-semantic point of view).

[For more on the the proof-theoretic side, have a look at Richard Zach's papers on the subject ( available on his publications page), and papers of Arnon Avron.]

Added (July 2006):
Walter Carnielli : Many-valued Models (32 p.)
[Contrary to the above papers, this one gives many-valued methods for independance results, and also has interest in paraconsistant logics.
It is one of the tutorials offered at the 1st World Congress and School on Universal Logic (2005) ]

Logic Daemon and Quizmaster

Disponible en ligne : Logic machine (Logic Daemon, quizmaster, ...).

"The Logic Machine at Texas A&M University hosts interactive logic software used for teaching introductory formal logic. The Daemon Proof Checker checks proofs and can provide hints for students attempting to construct proofs in a natural deduction system for sentential (propositional) and first-order predicate (quantifier) logic. The Quizmaster provides a variety of exercises, from questions about basic concepts such as validity, to wff construction and translation, to proofs, truth tables, and countermodels. The system and exercises are based on Logic Primer (MIT Press, 2000) but the exercises also suitable for use with other texts, such E.J. Lemmon's Beginning Logic."
