MATH 325 Set Theory (Q)

Last offered Fall 2013

Set theory is the traditional foundational language for all of mathematics. We will be discussing the Zermelo-Fraenkel axioms, including the Axiom of Choice and the Continuum Hypothesis, basic independence results and, if time permits, Goedel's Incompleteness Theorem. At one time, these issues tore at the foundations of mathematics. They are still vital for understanding the nature of mathematical truth.
