Aims, contents and method of the course

This is an introductory seminar on mathematical logic directly connected with the graduate lecture 250095 VO - Introduction to mathematical logic -., taught by Vera Fischer.  Weekly, we will discuss the topics given in the lecture at long, as well as work on exercises related to the topics of the lecture. The goal is to work with the tools given in the lecture and practice how to apply them in different situations. Weekly there will be a list of exercises to hand in and to discuss together.

Assessment and permitted materials

The final grade will be based on the active participation in the weekly discussions, as well as the hand in of the weekly lists of exercises. In the end, there will be a final individual list of exercises for each student.
