Boxes and Diamonds

Book Cover\

A textbook for modal and other intensional logics based on the Open Logic Project.

This repository/directory only contains the LaTeX files and illustrations needed to typeset the textbook Boxes and Diamonds, which in turn requires the Open Logic Text.

You can download the PDF of the most recent version from the Open Logic builds site.

To install and compile:

  • Download/install the Open Logic Text from GitHub, including photos and line art portraits.
  • Navigate to the subdirectory courses/
  • Put the content of this repository into a subdirectory of it, say courses/boxes-and-diamonds.
  • To get the graphics for the cover, navigate to the subdirectory OpenLogic/assets and put the content of photos into the subdirector photos, and the content of portraits into the subdirectory portraits

If you use git, this should do it:

# git clone
# cd OpenLogic/courses
# git clone
# cd ../assets
# git clone
# git clone

Inside courses/boxes-and-diamonds, you can now compile:

# cd boxes-and-diamonds
# pdflatex bd-screen

or just # make if you have latexmk installed.

The file bd-screen.tex produces a color version of the text with smaller margins for screen reading. bd-print produces a black-and-white version designed for printing on Crown Quarto stock (without cover).

Both versions load bd.tex, which contains the actual material. It in turn includes other files, most of them from the OpenLogic repository. So you won't get a complete book unless you download into the right subdirectory of and compile from there.
