Amir Tabatabai and Rahele Jalali visiting

Amir Tabatabai and Rahele Jalali, both PhD students at the Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences under the supervision of Pavel Pudlak, are visiting Swansea University 13 Nov – 6 Dec 2017.

Amir will give a talk on Computational Flows in Arithmetic on 16 November.

More information: A computational flow is a pair consisting of a sequence of computational  problems of a certain sort and a sequence of computational reductions among
them. In this talk we will explain the basics of the theory of computational
flows and how they make a sound and complete interpretation for bounded
theories of arithmetic. This property helps us to decompose a first order
arithmetical proof to a sequence of computational reductions by which we can
extract the computational content of the low complexity statements in some
bounded theories of arithmetic such as  I\Delta_0, T^k_n, I\Delta_0 + EXP \text{ and } PRA.
