Suggested readings

M. Huth, M. Ryan "Logic for Computer Science" Cambridge, ©2004, www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/lics/

M. Ben-Ari "Mathematical Logic for Computer Science" Springer, ©2012
Some notes will be delivered by the teacher on specific topics


  • Natural deduction
  • Temporal Logics and Model checking
  • Order structures and Denotational semantics
  • Reactive Systems and Hennessy-Milner logic
  • Hoare logic and verification of programs
  • Modelling practices (with Federico Mari and Vadim Alimguzhin)

Examination modalities

  • A project in collaboration and an oral examination on a part of the program, or
  • An oral examination on all the program
  • The oral examination on part of the program can be substituted by exercises performed during the lessons

Modelling practices (with Federico Mari and Vadim Alimguzhin):

This unit addresses the use of formal methods for mathematical modelling of dynamical systems and for specification of logic properties involving time. Many techniques for model based analysis are critically studied through journal club activity. Students are engaged in computer laboratory activity on analysis and design of models taken from literature.
