Lauri Hella

Professor of Mathematics


My research area is Finite Model Theory. I am especially interested in definability issues for generalized quantifiers on finite structures, descriptive complexity theory, Ehrenfeucht-Fraisse games, and modal logic.

I am leading the Tampere Logic Group. The group organizes a research seminar together with the Helsinki Logic Group.

Here is a link to a list of finite model theory people, which is maintained in Aachen.


In the autumn 2012, I am teaching the course Johdatus matemaattiseen päättelyyn. In addition, I am supervising Pro gradu -seminaari.
In the spring 2013, I will teach the course Matemaattinen logiikka.
