  • Current Course Notes (M.Sci, MA) (Copyright of the author). A version of the same notes but with line numbers.

    Please read the Course Information Sheet.

  • The 2020-2021 lectures and problems classes are available on the Youtube Channel to which you can subscribe, (the playlist AST Axiomatic Set Theory is this course not the course ST Set Theory). Watching these lectures is NOT part of the course or its requirements, it is just some extra supplementary viewing for your benefit.

  • Review of concepts from Set Theory Please read! Note the concepts from Logic that will be assumed (at the end), in particular the Löwenheim-Skolem Theorem.

  • Reading List


    This will now be set on the Friday of the Week number, and is due 9.00am the following Friday. The deadline for the marker is strict. --> NB The homework is not part of the course assessment (they are voluntary) but is nevertheless a necessary part of the learning process: it is there for you to practise, and you would be wise to at least attempt them each week to enhance your understanding. You should certainly study the solutions.

  • Exercise Solutions selected - combined for the course - these will accumulate as the course progresses.
