Michael von Boguslawski

Prochaine séance du séminaire Philform :
lundi 03 novembre de 14h00 à 16h00 dans la grande salle de l'IHPST
Michael von Boguslawski (université d'Helsinki): "Ketonen's logical discovery".

Abstract :
In this talk I will describe Oiva Ketonen's work on logic, in particular his discovery of a sequent calculus with invertible rules. Additionally I will give a brief overview of how logic arrived in Finland. Ketonen being the only student of Gerhard Gentzen - the father of sequent calculus - some recent research on the latter will also be presented.
