Miller will be lecturing from his monograph
Proof theory, proof search, and logic programming.
- The current draft is dated 14
September 2022. This version will be used in class.
- Comments, corrections, and criticism on this draft are welcome.
Many of the exercises discussed in class and used on the final exam
are taken from this text.

1, 2, and 3 from Miller's lecture notes.
- 26 Sep 2022, Lecture 2: Sequent calculus for classical and
intuitionistic logics. Chapter 4 and the start of Chapter 5.
- 3 Oct 2022, Lecture 3: Goal-directed search, focused proofs in
intuitionistic logic, and logic programming examples. Most of Chapter
5 is covered (except Section 5.6 on Kripke models).
- 10 Oct 2022, Lecture 4: Linear logic and logic programming: parts
of changes 6 and 7.
- 17 Oct 2022, Lecture 5: Finish Chapters 6 and 7.
- 12 Dec 2022, exam covering Miller's and Kesner's lectures.
