About the content
This is an introduction to predicate logic and how it is applied in computer science, electronic engineering, linguistics, mathematics and philosophy. Building on your knowledge of propositional logic, you will learn predicate logic—its language, interpretations and proofs, and apply it to solve problems in a wide range of disciplines.
Week 2. Models for Predicate Logic; Classifying propositions and arguments; Finite and Infinite Domains
Week 3. Tree Proofs for Predicate Logic; Soundness and Completeness
Week 4. Identity; Functions; Counting
Weeks 5–8. Applications to different reasoning domains (take at least three):
- Electronic Engineering — simplifying digital circuits with timing
- Philosophy — definite descriptions and existence
- Computer Science — databases, resolution and Prolog
- Linguistics — quantificational scope
- Mathematics — limits, continuity and quantifier alternation
- - Historical and Philosophical Studies
- Jen Davoren - Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering
