Mathematical logic is the study of the strengths and limitations of formal languages, proofs, and algorithms and their relationships to mathematical structures. It also aims to address foundational issues in mathematics.

Logic relates to theoretical computer science through computability theory and proof theory, to algebra, number theory, and algebraic geometry through model theory, and to analysis and ergodic theory through set theory and infinite combinatorics.
