Introductory description

To give students an understanding of the basics of mathematical logic, and its applications to specifying and verifying computing systems.
This module is only available to students in the second year of their degree and is not available as an unusual option to students in other years of study.

Module aims

To give students an understanding of the basics of mathematical logic, and its applications to specifying and verifying computing systems. Algorithms and proof calculi for verification, as well as associated tools, will be studied. Theory and practice relating to reliability of systems form a vital part of computer science.
