|Title:||Lindstr"om's characterization of first-order logic|
|Speaker:||Kostas Hatzikiriakou, University of Thessaloniki, Greece|
|In 1969 Per Lindstr"om characterized first-order logic as the strongest (most expressive) logical system for which (a) both the Compactness theorem and the L"owenheim-Skolem theorem hold (First Theorem), and (b) the L"owenheim-Skolem theorem holds and its set of valid sentences is recursively enumerable (Second Theorem). We will go through the proof of the First Lindstr"om's Theorem.|
