Computability (2012/13, Master of Science in Computer Science)


This page provides some information about the Computability course.

The syllabus can be found on the Esse3 page.


Assignments will be given during the course. They are optional, anonymous, and do not affect the final score. Still, students are encouraged to submit their answers, so that they can be discussed during the tutoring activities.

Exam Dates

Remember to register to the exam sessions on Esse3. Failure to do so results in the impossibility to take the exam. (In case of technical problems, send me an email before the registration period runs out).

Reminder: there will be NO other exam sessions beyond the mandated five per year. This is communicated to students every year during the first lecture.

Also, starting from 2011, I will try my best to avoid changing the exam dates so that students can plan everything in advance (e.g. buying plane tickets). Because of this, I can not move exam dates, even in the unfortunate event that they overlap with, or are very near to, other exams. Please also understand that the current system does not allow me to predict overlaps: I can only discover them once they are published on Esse3, and by that time it is too late.


The students wishing to improve their understanding of mathematical proofs are referred to the following basic logic and set theory books:
