This course is based for a large part on the ESSLLI course notes of Dick de Jongh and Nick Bezhanishvili.
The course starts with an introduction to the constructivistic ideas that lead Brouwer and Heyting to intuitionistic logic.
Afterwards the course mainly treats the intuitionistic propositional calculus but treats enough of the predicate calculus to make an excursion to arithmetic. The treatment of the propositional calculus proceeds in depth.
This leads to the fact that the course presupposes the course Introduction to Modal Logic.

- This course is worth 6 ECTS.
- The grading is on the basis of weekly homework assignments.
- Deadlines for submission are strict.
- Homework handed in after the deadline will not be taken in consideration.
- Homework should be handed in during the lectures, or sent by email to S.Sourabh[at]uva.nl
- Typed submissions are strongly preferred. Handwritten submissions must be legible. Illegible submissions will not be graded.
- When writing your solutions to exercises, provide motivation (justification in the form of proofs or counterexamples) of all your claims.
- On the other hand, be succinct. In particular:
- Never prove statements that are explicitly mentioned in the book or in the notes (unless specifically asked otherwise); simply refer to the propositions by number if you use them;
- In the case of a routine argument, you do not need to go into all the technical details;
- In case you think there's a mistake in one of the exercises, first check the course web page. If there is no information there, please contact the lecturer immediately.
