Logic seminar

From Peano Arithmetic to propositional calculus and back

Pavel Pudlák


Monday, 2. May 2022 - 16:00 to 17:30
in IM, rear building, ground floor - *not broadcast*
In the first half of my talk I will mention the history of our logic group in our institute and how we gradually moved from studying metamathematics of Peano Arithmetic to weak fragments, and eventually to proof complexity of propositional logic. In the second part I will talk about my project to define a hierarchy of propositional proof systems indexed by ordinals up to epsilon_0 with the aim to prove that they characterize the proof system associated with Peano Arithmetic.
