Subject of course

In this one-semester course, students gain an introductory overview of the main research areas of the LogiCS Doctoral Program: Verification, Computational Logic and Databases / Artificial Intelligence. For each of the three areas an overview is given by presentations of the participating professors. The main objective of this lecture is to stimulate interdisciplinary research and to inform students about the research areas of the LogiCS Doctoral College. In the introduction to logical methods, every student has to solve two exercises, which are selected from the areas that do not correspond to the research area of the doctoral supervisor.

Teaching methods

- The course consists of in-class lectures and homework exercises.
- Lectures slide are made online.
- Exercise topics for homework exercise will be discussed during the in-class lectures
- Homework solutions will be submitted online by students. These solutions will be corrected

by the lecturers and returned to the students.
- There will be individual meetings with students providing feedback on their overall course performance.
