The majority of the course follows the outline of Ben-Ari, but we will also use Huth and Ryan as the reference for natural deduction.

Lecture Schedule

I have three trips that I am already committed to in Spring 2018. I was invited to speak at the 58th CREST Open Workshop on 27th February. I am the Program Co-chair for ICST 2018, which takes place from 9th to 13th of April. Finally, I am attending the biggest software engineering conference, ICSE 2018, in the last week of May to present papers and conduct meetings. I will try my best to keep the disruptions to the minimum; there may be one or two guest lectures where appropriate.

The following schedule is tentative and we have have new topics for 2018. Stay tuned.
