MA 209: Logic: classical, modal and intuitionistic

Credits: 3:0

Pre-requisites :

  1. No prior knowledge of logic is assumed.
  2. Background in reading and doing mathematical proofs will be assumed.

This course is an introduction to standard material in logic, based on classical first-order logic, after which it ventures into modern treatments of some non-classical logics. Although other proof methods will be discussed, the emphasis will be on proofs using tableaus.
