Course objectives
The course covers basic results about propositional and first order logic, including Gödel's completeness and incompleteness theorems.
At the end of this course, students should be able to:
understand the difference between formal notions and notions defined at a meta-level;
understand the difference between validity and provability;
understand the syntax and semantics of first-order logic;
understand and appreciate the fundamental ideas in the proofs of Gödel's completeness and incompleteness theorems.
  • Propositional calculus: propositional formulas, truth, provability, completeness.
  • First-order logic: syntax, semantics.
  • A deductive system for first-order logic. Provability, correctness.
  • Completeness theorem: theories, models, Gödel's completeness theorem
  • Basic model theory, Löwenheim-Skolem theorem
  • Gödel's incompleteness theorem.
