The Department of Mathematics at University of Hawaii at Manoa has long had an informal graduate program in logic, lattice theory, and universal algebra going back to Alfred Tarski’s student William Hanf.
Starting in 2016, things are getting a little more formal.
We intend the following course rotation (repeating after two years):
|Semester||Course number||Course title|
|Fall 2015||MATH 649B||Graduate Seminar|
|Spring 2016||MATH 649*||Applied Model Theory|
|Fall 2016||MATH 654*||Graduate Introduction to Logic|
|Spring 2017||MATH 657||Computability and Complexity|
*Actual course numbers may vary.
