This course covers: essentials of first order logic, up to and including completeness proofs; introductions to proof theory and model theory; elements of modal and temporal logic; introduction to automated reasoning. Students will have the opportunity to read and present material going beyond that in the lectures.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Define several formal logical languages, their syntax and semantics.
- Explain inference mechanisms and their theoretical properties.
- Demonstrate how these languages and inference mechanisms can be applied to model and solve problems.
- Experiment with computer programs for automated reasoning.
- Develop mathematical proofs in the area of formal logic.
