Prerequisite: LOG 201 or MA 225 or CSC 226

GEP Mathematical Sciences

Typically offered in Fall only

LOG 430  Varieties of Logic  (3 credit hours)  

Study of various non-classical logics such as modal logic, many-valued logic, paraconsistent logic, second-order logic, and intuitionistic logic.

Typically offered in Spring only

LOG 435  Advanced Logic & Metamathematics  (3 credit hours)  

Advanced topics in logic and metamathematics: proof procedures, first-order theories, soundness and completeness theorems, recursive functions, the formalization of arithmetic, the Goedel Incompleteness Theorems. Emphasis on mathematical study of logic and mathematics. Students cannot receive credit for both LOG 435 and LOG 535

Prerequisite: LOG 335. Credit is not allowed for both LOG 435 and LOG 535.

LOG 498/LOG 598  Special Topics in Logic  (1-6 credit hours)  

Detailed investigation of selected topics in logic. Topics determined in consultation with head of the department. Course may be used for individualized study. Students cannot receive credit for both LOG 498 and LOG 598 unless the topic is different.
