Advance Logics (2022)

This course invites you to discover the close links existing between certain logical formalisms, automata and game theory. Discussed topics include, on the side of logics, second-order monadic logic, Presburger arithmetic and linear time logic. We will see how these can be compiled to automata, such as finite automata, Büchi automata and tree automata, yielding effective decision procedures.
