As part of my learning experience as a computer science major, I am studying the rules of formal logic. Studying these rules will allow me to be able to understand and to construct correct mathematical arguments and also, to distinguish between valid and invalid arguments.
Logic is important in understanding mathematical reasoning. Besides this aspect, logic has numerous applications to computing. We use the rules of logic to design computer circuits, to construct correct computer programs, to verify the correctness of programs, and in many other ways. Software systems have been developed to build proofs automatically.
One area of logic is the study of logical paradoxes.
What is a logical paradox?
In my presentation, I will answer this question, and refer to the study of logical paradoxes in depth.
