The logic seminar today will be given by David Webb. A title and abstract are below.
Title: On The Levin-V’yugin Degrees
Abstract: I will define and discuss the Levin-V’yugin degrees, a measure algebra defined on collections of reals closed under Turing equivalence. Roughly speaking, in this ordering collections A and B have that A<B if for any probabilistic algorithm, the probability that it produces an element of A that is not in B is 0. Time permitting, I will prove that the computable reals and the random reals each form an atom in this Boolean algebra, and discuss other degrees and their positions in the lattice.
The paper this talk is based on is here: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1907.
Time and place: Tuesday September 14, 10:30am in Holmes 247.
Speaker: Ellen Hughes, undergraduate student, UH Manoa.
Title: The interest equation in Lean
Abstract: We discuss how to solve the equation $y=x(1+i)^n$ for $i$ and for $n$ in the Lean proof assistant.
This is joint work with Monica Johnson, Ryan Sasaki and Prof. Kjos-Hanssen.
Covid-19 mitigation plan:
Participants will be required to show vaccination or testing status using the Lumisight app upon entry, observe 3ft social distancing, and to wear masks throughout.
Hope to see you there.

Title: Introduction to Modal Logic: Filtrations and Finite Model Property of $S_5$
Abstract : We’ll introduce some basic notions from Modal Logic namely, Kripke Frames, Standard Models, Filtrations etc. Then we’ll demonstrate the Finite Model Property of the system $S_5$ and this will be our main goal.
