Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to recognize different motivations for extending, modifying, refining, and generalizing classical logic. In particular, successful participants know how to apply concepts and techniques of modal logic to model forms of reasoning, that refer to the knowlegde and ignorance of (idealized) agents. Moreover, they have aquired an overview over the wide and varied landscape of nonclassical logical formalisms.

Subject of course

Introduction into modal logic, in particular epistemic logic (logics of knowledge), intuitionistic logics, many valued logics, including fuzzy logics. In particular, a number of relevant results from proof theory and formal semantics (e.g., correctness, completeness, complexity of logics and calculi) are covered. Moreover also foundational problems relating to formal, logical modeling of important concepts in computer science will be discussed.

Teaching methods

  • mathematical proofs
  • derivations in logical calculi
  • formal modeling

Examination modalities

The default method of evaluation refers to individual solutions to exercises that are to be handed in regularly during the whole course. If insufficient, this may be augmented by assignments of additional tasks and/or a written exam at the end of the course.
