Reading Godel’s 1946 Princeton Bicentennial Lecture

(Refreshments, MH210 at 2:30pm)


In his 1946 Princeton Bicentennial Lecture Goedel suggested the problem of transferring the Turing analysis of computability to the cases of definability and provability, in particular finding a notion of definability for set theory which is “formalism free” in a sense similar to the notion of computable function — a notion which is very robust with respect to its various associated formalisms. In this lecture we examine this suggestion, as well as the developments in computability in the 1930s which set the stage for Goedel’s idea.

MS Math at CSU Channel Islands

April 23rd, 2014 by laurel

Masters of Science in Mathematics

The program is the result of collaboration of mathematics, computer science, and physics
faculty and is designed to address the global need for people with advanced mathematical,
analytical, and computational skills. Students are provided with a strong background in
mathematics and its applications as well as skills necessary to conduct independent
research. The program incorporates interdisciplinary applications such as bioinformatics,
actuarial sciences, cryptography, security, image recognition, artificial intelligence,
mathematics education, and the philosophy of mathematics. Students’ specializations
depend on the electives chosen and on the final thesis/project conducted under the
supervision of an advisor/mentor. An individual study plan can be designed to meet entry
requirements for Ph.D. programs in mathematics or the mathematical sciences. For more information, see the flier below
