Supervisor:
Department of Mathematics
Synopsis:

Logic is in the same time an object studied by mathematics and the language used to formalize and study mathematics. The goal of the course is to introduce basic notion of results of classical mathematical logic.

1.Propositions, evaluation, tautologies, axioms, theorems, soundness, completeness, and decidability of Hilbert and Gentzen style propositional calculi.

2.Language of predicate calculus, terms, formulas, relational structures, satisfiability, truth, tautologies, axioms, theorems, soundness, model constructions.

3.Gödel completeness theorem, Skolem and Herbrand theorems.

4.The first and the second Gödel theorems on incompleteness of Peano arithmetics and undecidability of predicate calculus.
