**Course objectives**- At the end of the course students should be familiar with main research and applications in computational logic; They will be able to use automatic provers for propositional and predicate logic and also for its extensions; They will be familiar with, and able to use, methods for inductive inference in those logics;
**Learning outcomes**- After successfully completing this course students should be familiar with several logics, including propositional logic, first-order logic, and modal logic. They should be familiar with various proof calculi for these logics and be able to use such calculi to test formulae for satisfiability and or validity. In addition, they should have basic knowledge about automatic theorem provers and they way these work.
**Syllabus**- Introduction to propositional and predicate logic.
- Deduction: Resolution; Logic programming; Prolog, extralogical features, metainterpreters; Advanced parts from logic programming; Definite clause grammars; Deductive databases;
- Tableau proofs in different logics. Theorem proving in modal logic.
- Induction: Basics of inductive logic programming; Model inference problem; Assumption-based reasoning and learning; Learning frequent patterns.
- Logic for natural language processing.
- Knowledge representation and reasoning: Non-classical logic; Knowledge-based systems; Non-monotonic reasoning; Semantic web.
