Mathematical Logic at Penn State

October 28, 2011

Historically, mathematical logic grew out of profound investigations concerning the most basic concepts and logical structure of mathematics. Among the great names are Georg Cantor, David Hilbert, Kurt Gödel, and Alan Turing.

Important Note:

  1. Gödel and Turing are the only mathematicians in Time Magazine's list of the 20 most influential thinkers of the 20th century.
  2. MATH 557 and MATH 558 are an exposition of the ideas of Gödel and Turing.
