Tuesday, April 21st, 2015 at 11:00 AM in Old Falvey Reading Room

Please join us in the Reading Room of Falvey Memorial Library on Tuesday, April 21 at 2 p.m. for a Outstanding Faculty Research Award lecture featuring this year’s recipient Giorgi Japaridze, PhD, professor of computing sciences. Dr. Japaridze will discuss the extensive research that led him to win the coveted Outstanding Faculty Research Award in 2015.

Tailored for a general audience, Dr. Japaridze’s talk “Computability, Logic, and Computability Logic,” will give a brief overview of two landmark findings in the logic and the theory of computation followed by a survey of the new line of research introduced by the speaker several years ago. In the same sense that traditional logic is used to answer the question “What is (always) true?” Japaridze’s work is a long-term program for rebuilding logic into a comprehensive formal theory of computability. “Computability Logic” (CoL) endeavors to provide a systematic answer to the more general question: “What can (always) be computed and how?” Light refreshments will be served.

This event, co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, the office for Research and Graduate Programs (ORGP), is free and open to the public.
