About the Cognitive Science Program
Cognitive science is the study of how intelligent beings (including people, animals, and machines) perceive, act, know, and think.
It explores the process and content of thought as observed in individuals, distributed through communities, manifested in the structure and meaning of language, modeled by algorithms, and contemplated by philosophies of mind.
Its models are formulated using concepts drawn from many disciplines, including psychology, linguistics, logic, computer science, anthropology, and philosophy, and they are tested using evidence from psychological experiments, clinical studies, field studies, computer simulations, and neurophysiological observation.
Announcement: The Cognitive Science Graduate Certificate is now open to UConn students and non-degree students. Please see the Graduate Certificate Application process webpage for more information.

Intuitionistic Sets and Numbers: the theory SST
SST is a small intuitionistic set theory governing the hereditarily finite sets. It is based upon set induction. Simple as SST is, it seems remarkably strong: it deduces--within intuitionistic formal logic--all the axioms of ZF + AC, less the Axiom of Infinity, except that Separation is limited to decidable predicates. It is relatively straightforward to prove that SST has the usual Goedelian incompleteness properties. SST is definitionally equivalent to full, first-order intuitionistic arithmetic, aka Heyting Arithmetic. And SST manifests the attractive metamathematical properties of many intuitionistic mathematical theories--it supports a number of different realizability and topological interpretations and can be assumed to be categorical.
