Course description and aims

This course provides lectures on stat-of-the-art topics by faculty members invited from overseas universities.

Interactive Theorem Proving:
This course is given by Prof. Cezary Kaliszyk from University of Innsbruck and covers the theory and practice of interactive theorem proving such as logic for computable functions, simple type theory, and dependent types. The lecture includes practical sessions using the proof assistant Isabelle.

The course is held at 15:05 - 16:35 on the following dates:
June 4, June 7, June 11, June 14, June 18, June 21, June 25, June 28, July, 2, July 16, July 19, July 23, July 26, July 30.
(Basically, every Tuesday and Friday, but with a break at the beginning of July.)

For practical sessions, you need to bring a aptop computer where the proof assistant Isabelle is installed.
