This is a beginning graduate-level class in mathematical logic with motivation
provided by applications in Computer Science. Topics include:
propositional and first-order logic; soundness, completeness, and compactness
of first-order logic; first-order theories; undecidability and Godel's
incompleteness theorem; and an introduction to other logics such as
second-order and temporal logic.
There are no formal prerequisites, but the pace of the class will require that
the students can cope with a significant level of mathematical sophistication.
