Research in Mathematical Logic

Alan M Turing
Alan Mathison Turing

There is a strong tradition in mathematical logic at Manchester. The first logician at Manchester was Alan Turing, now considered to be the father of artificial intelligence and one of the great visionaries of the twentieth century. Turing was followed at Manchester by his former student Robin Gandy who made important contributions to the foundations of proof theory and constructive mathematics. Two of Gandy's students have held chairs in at Manchester, Mike Yates (now retired), and Jeff Paris.

There are strong links with other parts of pure mathematics and with computer science.

The logic group offers opportunities for PhD study in all the research areas mentioned below (for admissions please visit here), as well as a one year taught MSc programme.
