## Syllabus

Computational Logic plays an important role in many
areas of computer science, including verification of
hardware and software, programming languages,
databases and Artificial Intelligence. This course
lays the foundations for the more advanced core
courses Automated Reasoning, Semantics and
Verification. The main topics of the course are:
- Simply typed lambda calculus:
Syntax, semantics, deduction.
- Propositional logic:
Boolean algebras,
completeness and canonicity, BDDs, resolution,
sequent calculus, natural deduction and Curry
Howard correspondence.
- Higher order logic:
Higher order Boolean logic, quantifiers,
identity, extensionality, axiom of choice.
- Dynamic logic and computability: Regular
programs, weakest preconditions, invariants,
verification conditions, halting problem, theorems
of Rice and Gödel.
