The aim of this volume is to present modern developments in semantics and logics of computation in a way that is accessible to graduate students. The book is based on a summer school at the Isaac Newton Institute and consists of a sequence of linked lecture courses by international authorities in the area. The whole set have been edited to form a coherent introduction to these topics, most of which have not been presented pedagogically before.
