Logic 1

326.019, 326.021 - Mathematical Logic 1

Winter Semester 2015

The course is an introduction to logic for students in Computer Science and Mathematics.

The contents of the lecture is very similar to the transcript by Martin Koehler of previous lectures: pdf file. (May contain some typos and small errors.)

For more details (some of which are not covered in the lecture) I recommend: Bruno Buchberger: Logic for Computer Science pdf file. This material is copyrighted and is available only for the students of this lecture and only for the purpose of study related to it.


Understand the principles of Mathematical Logic and its mathematical models, aquire the skills for using it in Mathematics and Computer Science.


The principles of Mathematical Logic and its role in human activity.

Main models: propositional logic, first-order predicate logic, higher-order logic. Proof systems: correctness, completeness.

Practical use of Mathematical Logic in Mathematics (building theories, proving), and in Computer Science (automatic reasoning, programming, describing and proving properties of programs).


The schedule of the lecture is shown in KUSSS. The home page of the lecture in WS 2014 may give you an idea about the contents and the homeworks, although the current lecture will not be exactly the same.

Lectures (may change depending on the concrete progress)


Each exercise counts for your final grade. In particular the grade for exercises is based on the homework and on your activity in the class room.

In case you send your homeworks by e-mail, please use my address Tudor.Jebelean@jku.at.

Also please use as name of the file[s] your name and the number of the homework, e. g. like Mayer-3.pdf or Schreiner-J-4.ps. Please do not use Windows Word files (*.doc) because the special symbols are not shown correctly on different systems. If you do not have alternative to Word, then please print the file using the option "Print to file" and send this file too.
