  • SSFM (Sporadic Seminars in Formalising Mathematics):

    To encourage one another to formalise, we will be holding sporadic seminars called Sporadic Seminars in Formalising Mathematics (SSFM). This can be online or in-person before/after each session.
    See more on the Discord server under (#ssfm) and the SSFM page here.

  • Credit:

    For PhD students taking this course for credit2, you will need to complete a (group) project. See the project page here for more information.
    But please speak to us before beginning your project, to discuss feasibility and credit-worthiness.

  1. The invite to the Discord server should be in the email(s) we send out. If you are having trouble finding it, then please reach out. 

  2. counts as much as any other SMSTC/GlaMS course!
