The course assumes that you have had a basic introduction to logic already and are familiar with the following topics: syntax and semantics of both propositional and first-order logic; disjunctive and conjunctive normal forms; basic equivalences of propositional and first-order logic. These topics will only be refreshed briefly at the beginning of the course.
The main topics of the course:
- Proof theory: sequent calculus, natural deduction, resolution; their soundness and completeness; translations between proof systems.
- Meta-theory of first order logic: compactness, model theoy, undecidability, incompleteness of arithmetic.
- Decision procedures for fragments of logic and arithmetic.
- Basics (Esparza/Schöning)
- Equivalences (Esparza/Schöning)
- Normal forms (Esparza/Schöning)
- Definitional CNF (Harrison)
- Horn formulas (Esparza/Schöning)
- Compactness (Harrison)
- Resolution (Esparza/Schöning)
