Prerequisites:

some basic knowledge of algebra and topology. 
Target skills and knowledge:

The aim of the course in logic is to study the relation between syntax and semantics of a formal language and to illustrate the main properties of logical calculi and their main expressive and prooftheoretic limits. 
Examination methods:

written with the possibility to add an oral examination 
Assessment criteria:

the aim of the exam is to evaluate the knowledge of the student on the topics of the corse 
Course unit contents:

This course is about the study of the expressive power and corresponding limits of deductive formal systems for both classical and intuitionistic predicate logics as well as for their corresponding extensions with Peano axioms of arithmetic.
We will study
decision procedures for their propositional fragments,
semidecision procedures for the full predicate logics,
the main theorems about the equivalence between the mentioned logics and their algebraic semantics,
Goedel incompleteness theorems for both classical and intuitionistic arithmetic.
