What are current trends/questions in algebraic logic?I mean the research developed by Paul Halmos.

And anyone could give some reference for overview of it's history?

Also any overview of it's application to computer science and computability theory is welcome

What are you actually asking? If algebraic logic is still active? If algebraic logic is finding applications to other areas of logic at the cutting edge? –  Noah S Aug 5 '13 at 3:23
@NoahS I mean algebraic logic is still active,I will edit the post,thank you –  XL _at_China Aug 5 '13 at 3:50
Take a look at this: math-inst.hu/pub/algebraic-logic/handbook.pdf. I don't know when it's from, but it cites papers from 1997, so it's pretty recent. I think the answer is basically "yes," so a more detailed question - maybe along the lines of, "What are current trends/questions in algebraic logic?" - would be better for MO. –  Noah S Aug 5 '13 at 4:13
Let me just say that I would be very interested in seeing answers to a question about what algebraic logic is doing these days; it's not a field I know anything about, but it sounds fascinating. –  Noah S Aug 5 '13 at 4:14
@NoahS,but the post has been downvoted to have been closed,I am very interested in seeing answers too.Maybe you can ask a similiar question in your way that you think is appropriate –  XL _at_China Aug 5 '13 at 4:23

I ran across this today, and was reminded of this question: I think the article "Algebraic logic, Where does it stand today?" by T. S. Ahmed (http://projecteuclid.org/DPubS?service=UI&version=1.0&verb=Display&handle=euclid.bsl/1130335206) addresses your question.
