POSTPONED: Protocols in Dynamic Epistemic Logic

POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Speaker: Alexandru Dragomir (University of Bucharest)

Title: Protocols in Dynamic Epistemic Logic
Abstract: Dynamic epistemic logics are useful in reasoning about knowledge and certain acts of learning (epistemic actions). However, not all epistemic actions are allowed to be executed in an initial epistemic model, and this is where the concept of a protocol comes in: a protocol stipulates what epistemic actions are allowed to be performed in a model. The aim of my presentation is to introduce the audience to the account of protocols in [1, 2].

BLOCKCHAIN – More than a buzzword

Title: BLOCKCHAIN – More than a buzzword

Speaker: Ionut-Daniel Dobos (MBN Technologies)


Abstract: In this presentation we will take a look at the concept of a blockchain as a mean to hold historical transactional data (while maintaining all the core concepts of Cryptography) and moreover, to see how IPFS uses such approaches to ensure a way of general data storage with the same capabilities. We will choose the Ethereum network as a use case for the first topic, taking a deeper look into the upcoming Casper update for the consensus mechanism, introducing the Proof of Stake paradigm.

A quantitative analysis of the “Lion-Man” game

SpeakerUlrich Kohlenbach (Technische Universität Darmstadt)

Title: A quantitative analysis of the “Lion-Man” game
Abstract: We analyze, based on an interplay between ideas and techniques from logic and geometric analysis, a pursuit-evasion game. More precisely, we focus on a discrete lion and man game with an ε-capture criterion. We prove that in uniformly convex bounded domains the lion always wins and, using ideas stemming from proof mining, we extract a uniform rate of convergence for the successive distances between the lion and the man. As a byproduct of our analysis, we study the relation among different convexity properties in the setting of geodesic spaces.
Joint work with Genaro López-Acedo and Adriana Nicolae.
