Aim and Content

The course introduces the elementary concepts from propositional and first-order logics. WE study the relation between syntax and semantics, reasoning systems, proof strategies and completeness. We will also consider simple applications in informatics, such as logic programming and formal specifications.

Learning Outcomes

The course introduces fundamental notions and techniques from formal logic. These notions and techniques are used in different areas of informatics. An understanding of such notions is useful for all the students of informatics (as well as mathematics). In particular, the course gives the necessary background for further study of theoretical informatics.
