Dependence logic, spring 2014

Lecturer

Juha Kontinen

Scope

5 sp.

Type

Advanced studies

Description

Dependence logic adds the concept of dependence to first-order logic by the means of new atomic dependence formulas =(x_1,…,x_n,y),
meaning that the values of the variables x_1,…,x_n completely determine the values of the variable y. Dependence logic bases its semantics in the concept of a set X of assignments satisfying a formula (rather than an individual assignment satisfying a formula, as in first-order logic). In the past few years, the team semantics of dependence logic has grown into a new framework in which various notions of dependence and independence can be formalized and studied. This course reviews the basic theory of dependence logic and some of its variants.

Prerequisites   

Mathematical logic (Matemaattinen logiikka). The course finite model theory (Äärellisten mallien teoria) is not assumed.

Lectures

Weeks 11-18, Monday 12-14 and Thursday 12-14 in room B321.

Easter holiday 17.-23.4.
