[Slides for Lecture 1]

>> Tuesday, June 14: Hintikka sets and their applications
The lecturer will tell what Hintikka sets are and how they can be used as a powerful method in model theory to prove e.g. the Compactness Theorem, Completeness Theorem and the Interpolation Theorem.
[Slides for Lecture 2]

>> Wednesday, June 15: Dependence logic
Dependence logic arises from first order logic when new atomic formulas are added, e.g. for dependence, independence or inclusion. The lecturer will give the basic ingredients necessary for the study of dependence logic.
