Lecture 16: The Curry-Howard Isomorphism

We continue the discussion of natural deduction and the relationship between constructive proofs and functional programs. For the propositional fragment, this relationship turns out to be an isomorphism. For first-order logic it is more complicated and we try to illustrate some of the similarities and differences between logical and type-theoretic approaches to specification.
