Graduate Program in Logic

The Department of Mathematics at University of Hawaii at Manoa has long had an informal graduate program in logic, lattice theory, and universal algebra (People, Courses, Description) going back to Alfred Tarski’s 1963 student William Hanf.

We are offering the following course rotation (courses repeating after two years):

Semester Course number Course title Instructor
Fall 2015 MATH 649B Graduate Seminar Kjos-Hanssen
Spring 2016 MATH 649 Applied Model Theory Ross
Fall 2016 MATH 654 Graduate Introduction to Logic Beros
Spring 2017 MATH 657 Computability and Complexity Khan
Fall 2017 - - -
Spring 2018 MATH 649 Applied Model Theory Ross
Fall 2018 MATH 654 Graduate Introduction to Logic Kjos-Hanssen
Spring 2019 MATH 657 Computability and Complexity Kjos-Hanssen
Fall 2019 - - -

It is also recommended that students familiarize themselves with undergraduate level logic, which is offered on the following schedule:

Semester Course number Course title Instructor
Fall 2012 MATH 454 Axiomatic Set Theory Kjos-Hanssen
Spring 2013 MATH 455 Mathematical Logic Kjos-Hanssen
Fall 2014 MATH 454 Axiomatic Set Theory Ross
Spring 2015 MATH 455 Mathematical Logic Khan
Spring 2016 MATH 454 Axiomatic Set Theory Khan
Spring 2017 MATH 455 Mathematical Logic Ross
Spring 2018 MATH 455 Mathematical Logic Khan
Fall 2018 MATH 454 Axiomatic Set Theory Ross
Spring 2019 MATH 455 Mathematical Logic Ross
Fall 2019 MATH 454 Axiomatic Set Theory

Removable sets

Assistant Professor Malik Younsi has been awarded an NSF grant for 2017-2020 to work on removable sets and questions in geometric function theory.

The research project involves the study of the geometric properties of conformally removable sets, including problems related to rigidity of circle domains, conformal welding and fingerprints of lemniscates. It also includes questions dealing with shapes of Julia sets and the subadditivity of analytic capacity

Spring Problem Solving Sessions will be held

Wednesdays @4 pm in Keller 403
starting February 7, 2018
(you are very welcome to join later if you want to)

aim to prepare for

Putnam Math Competition
(“the world’s toughest math contest”)

http://math.hawaii.edu/wordpress/putnam-exam/

December 1, 2018

(earlier start, better prepared!)

Practice sessions will be coached by:
• Prof. Pavel Guerzhoy (pavel@math.hawaii.edu)
• Sasha Markovichenko (markov@math.hawaii.edu)
• Yuliia Kravchenko (yuliia@math.hawaii.edu)
who all have extensive experience with math contests

Come learn problem solving skills!
Enjoy hot malasadas and other refreshments!
Please join us and make this year’s Putnam competition a
successful one.
