CSE1300/TI1306 - Reasoning and Logic

By Neil Yorke-Smith  
When is an argument logically valid and when is it not? How can we determine whether an argument is logically valid? How can we derive a logically valid conclusion from the premises? So that we can accurately formulate problems and prove their solutions, this course studies formal models (including set theory) and proof techniques (such as induction and contradiction). These mathematical tools allow us, for example, to demonstrate the correctness of an algorithm.

TI2306 - Algorithm Design

By Mathijs de Weerdt

Algorithms are fundamental to computer science and software engineering. The real-world performance of any software system depends on: (1) the algorithms chosen and (2) the suitability and efficiency of the various layers of implementation. Moreover, the study of algorithms provides insight into the intrinsic nature of the problem, such as recognizing the possibility that no suitable algorithm may exist. Algorithms are essential in all advanced areas of computer science: artificial intelligence, databases, distributed computing, graphics, networking, operating systems, programming languages, security, and so on.

TI2316 - Automata, Languages and Computability

By Matthijs Spaan
This course is about elementary theory of: Finite State Machines, Regular Languages, Regular Expressions, the Pumping Lemma for regular languages, Pushdown Automata and their associated Context Free Languages, Context Free Grammars, Chomsky Normal Form for these grammars, Turing Machines (deterministic and non-deterministic), the notions of Turing-recognisable languages and decidable languages, countable and uncountable sets, Cantor's diagonalisation method, reduction and reduction techniques, undecidable languages and non-Turingrecognisable languages.

Course year 2017/2018 was the last time these seminars were offered in this form. If you are interested in these topics, we refer you to CS4210-A and CS4210-B. You may then indicate your interest, and in particular in CS4210-B there is the possibility to choose topics related to one of these seminars.
