## Computational Logic

### Introduction

Roy Dyckhoff
headed the research activity at St Andrews in computational logic.
He is now (since 2011) retired,
and thus is no longer inviting PhD applications;
but continues as an active researcher, publishing articles and giving talks at workshops and conferences.
His and his students' (and research colleagues') work included the development of proof
assistants and theorem-provers for various logics, the exploitation
of various logics for problem specification or as programming
languages, and the investigation of their proof theory and semantics.
