Inhalt

Description of various logical systems for reasoning about issues that arise when the available data and/or observed events are uncertain, unknown, or unreliable. This includes aspects of quite different nature such as knowledge, dependence and independence, imperfect information, randomness. Connections to decision theory, probabilistic databases, provenance, and games.

Lernziele

Understanding of the differences between various forms of uncertainty and the logical methods for dealing with them. Mastering the methods for analyzing the expressive power and algorithmic properties of the appropriate logical systems.
