Seminar code: NMMB453 (both semesters)
(you can sign up for the seminar repeatedly)
The seminar is run in English if students
not speaking Czech
attend, as happened many semesters during the past.
The seminar is intended for students interested in mathematical
logic. It does not assume more than basic knowledge, e.g. on
the level of basic course
Uvod do matematicke logiky
(taking that particular course is not a necessary
admission condition though).
The seminar runs from the summer semester 06/07.
Students are welcome to attend also a more advanced
Usually we concentrate on a different theme each semester
and it is generally not assumed that you have attended earlier
semesters (there are occasionally exceptions to this rule
when the topic from winter semester over-spilled into the summer
The themes are chosen in a discussion with the participants
in order to respect their backgrounds and interests, and
often relate to the area of interactions of logic and
computational complexity theory.
The main program is complemented by occasional lectures by guests.
Winter semester 2022/23:
Proof theory basics
Proof theory is one of classical areas of mathematical logic
originating from D.Hilbert's work on the foundations of mathematics
and featuring such basic topics as Herbrand's theorem, Godel's Incompleteness
Gentzen's sequent calculus and natural deduction, ordinal analysis of proofs,
non-classical logics, etc.
It is also the area of mathematical logic
which has most applications in CS and these connections stimulate
many of recent developments.
We shall look first at some of the classical topics and then, time permitting,
on some more recent developments. The particular topics and seminar material
(and schedule of talks) will be at
the literature page.
Day, time and place:
The seminar is online on
Fridays, 9-10.30 (being revised these days - check later)

I will send the password to all students who will sign up for the seminar
in the SIS (or contact me directly).
After you join the meeting you will find yourself in
a waiting room - this is just a precaution to avoid unwanted visitors.
For the same reason please join each meeting under your *real name*.
Only those who signed up for the seminar (in the SIS or with me)
will be let in.
The zoom room will open always cca 5 minutes before the seminar.
