Teacher: Åsa Hirvonen Scope: 5 op Type: Advanced studies Teaching: Topics: Continuous logic is a [0,1]-valued generalization of first order logic developed for the study of metric structures such as Banach spaces and operator algebras. This course gives a short introduction to the logic and its models. Prerequisites: Logic I or Mathematical logic is recommended. |
Weeks 44-50, Monday 10-12 and Thursday 14-16 in room B120. In additon, two hours of exercise classes per week.
Course exam on Wednesday 16.12. at 12.00-14.30 in one of the auditoriums in Exactum.
As course material we will use the following survey article:
