Doct. diss. on a quasi-topological model of text coherence (supervised by W.Marciszewski). Habil. diss. contains results of the author's tense-logical approach to Łukasiewicz's indeterminism. --- Logical semantics, esp. theories of meaning. Two textbooks of logic. Prof. Trzęsicki established the Institute of Management at the Technological University in Białystok which was run by him with a considerable success, including a flourishing collaboration with "Tempus" project and the highest quality of electronic equippment for teaching purposes. In connexion with this activity he is also engaged in research on ethics of business.Doct. diss. on historical controversies about analytic sentences (supervised by S.Kamiński). Habil. diss. on foundations of logical theories of belief. --- Current main interest: logical theory in relation to natural and artificial intelligence - in the light of experiences due to mechanization of reasoning, interpreted with the help of Leibniz's philosophy (more - at the home page, see the link above).Doct. diss. on definite descriptions as rendered in syntactic structures of Polish (supervised by W.Marciszewski).
