Teaching

  • CS-175 Modelling Computing Systems 2

    This module will follow on from CS-170 and introduces students to mathematical tools and techniques for modelling computing systems.

  • CS-210 Concurrency

    This module provides an introduction to the issues raised in developing and using concurrent and distributed systems. Consideration of practical and formal solutions to example problems from operating systems and networking.

  • HUP170 Introduction to Logic

    This module introduces students to the language and tools of classical elementary logic and addresses questions about the relations between formal and natural languages. It cultivates studentsÂż ability to translate complex natural language passages into formal claims and arguments, to assess their validity, and to engage with such further philosophical topics as: analyticity, apriority, necessity, descriptions, existence, identity, truth, meaning and reference. Finally, students will engage with various techniques required for reasoning about complex systems.
