@Rick - sorry, I had no intentions of puking in response to your comments - although they are somewhat silly winking smiley

It was just a general blah to everyone and everything

@rklopper ....
AFAIK, "formal specification" is to "formal logic" what primary school algebra is to
fluid dynamics. IOW, there is a relation, but the scale of difficulty is probably an
order of magnitude if measured. Formal program specification is indeed simple, formal
logic is a whole other story.

@Kilhra
This module (formal logic, that is, not formal specification) is actually quite difficult
even if you have done all the undergrad FL modules and have supplemented the required
textbook with other material. It is all math, in the sense of working from axioms towards
proof. There is nothing "real" about it, all abstract, so it is in effect a pure math
module. Do it if you are comfortable with math and proofs and theorems. Don't do it if
you had trouble with COS 301/201 or the undergrad FL modules. This module has, IIRC, a
rather high failure rate primarily because it is difficult.

@goose

I was not upset or trying to convince anyone that its the same. I was offering information on something related that I did, which was very rudely thrown back in my face, along with comments questioning my intelligence. Thats what I am upset about.

If thats the response and attitude that people will get for trying to offer information and help, then this forum is going to become very quiet. If the information is not helpful or not relevant, then just say thanks, but I meant something else...and not be rude. Maybe my expectations are too high for that to happen, as it largely depends on the level of maturity of any particular individual.

COS407C - What can you use it for?

e.g. Something like COS416 might also be theoretical but you could prove for instance the possiblity of the existance of a particular formula in an Excel spreadsheet to do a certain task. (sucking this eg out of my thumb here of course)

I see some of Assignment 2 COS407 this year has horn clauses and resolution, which is somewhat part of COS351 sylabus. (wumpus world). I understand its purely an academic subject, but what fields will it benefit and how?

i don't believe that any postgrad degrees really benefit anything - unless its some ground breaking thing. you do a postgrad degree because it interests you.
