Student logic seminar

Seminar code: NMMB453 (both semesters)
(you can sign up for the seminar repeatedly)

The seminar is run in English if students not speaking Czech attend, as happened many semesters during the past.

The seminar is intended for students interested in mathematical logic. It does not assume more than basic knowledge, e.g. on the level of basic course Uvod do matematicke logiky (taking that particular course is not a necessary admission condition though). The seminar runs from the summer semester 06/07. Students are welcome to attend also a more advanced Logic seminar.

In every semester we concentrate on a different theme and it is generally not assumed that you have attended earlier semesters (there were some exceptions when the topic from one semester over-spilled into the next one). The themes are chosen in a discussion with the participants in order to respect their backgrounds and interests, and often relate to the area of interactions of logic and computational complexity theory. The main program is complemented by occasional lectures by guests.

Past program.

Winter semester 2018/19: Logic and Computational Complexity

Many central notions and problems of computational complexity theory have their origins in mathematical logic. We shall look at some basic examples.
The literature page will grow as we progress.

Day, time and place:

Thursday at 12.2o in the seminar room of the Algebra Dept. (Karlin).
