The goal of the study of dependence and independence in logic is to establish a basic theory of dependence and independence phenomena underlying seemingly unrelated subjects such as game theory, random variables, database theory, scientific experiments, and probably many others. The monograph Dependence Logic (J. Väänänen, Cambridge UP, 2007) stimulated an avalanche of new results which have demonstrated remarkable convergence in this area. The concepts of (in)dependence in the different fields of science have surprising similarity and a common logic is starting to emerge. This special issue will give an overview of the state of the art of this new field.
