Graduate & Undergraduate programs in mathematical 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.

During Fall 2022 the logic seminar had talks by three outside speakers from Chiba, Yamaguchi and Wisconsin.

See also: the international online seminar Computability Theory and Applications.

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

New book on Subquasivariety Lattices

Professor Emeritus J.B. Nation, frequent visitors Kira Adaricheva and Jennifer Hyndman, and UH’s Joy Nishida have published a new book:

A Primer of Subquasivariety Lattices uniquely develops universal algebra in languages that may not contain equality.

It presents new results in representations of various types of lattices by subquasivarieties, and illustrates theory through concrete examples.

Part of the book series: Canadian Mathematical Society/CAIMS Books in Mathematics (CMS/CAIMS BM, volume 3)
