Description Logic is the study of the principles of reasoning, and lies at the foundations of computation. This module introduces logic and a variety of techniques for proving the correctness of logical arguments. This is illustrated with applications across a range of topics in computer science, including methods to ensure the correctness of programs in a principled way.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • Write formal proofs for propositional and predicate logic
  • Understand and apply algorithms for key problems in logic such as satisfiability.
  • Understand the connections between logic, types and reasoning about functional programming languages
