Start by marking Incompleteness in the Land of Sets as Want to Read . This book gives a full presentation of the basic incompleteness and undecidability theorems of mathematical logic in the framework of set theory.

Godel numbering is generally avoided, except when an explicit connection is made between set theory and arithmetic. The book assumes little technical background from the reader. One needs mathematical ability, a general familiarity with formal logic, and an understanding of the completeness theorem, though not its proof.

I will follow the approach in, so I will carry out the work in the framework of set theory using Russell's paradox as an organizing principle. Set theory because it was designed to be a 'universal' theory. Hint: consider three cases: x y; a b; and x y and a b. (You can find a proof in, which is what this paper is based on. In general, that is where to look for more details about anything discussed here.

This book gives a full presentation of the basic incompleteness and undecidability theorems of mathematical logic in the framework of set theory. Gödel numbering is generally avoided, except when an explicit connection is made between set theory and arithmetic. All else is developed and formally proved, from Tarski's Theorem to Gödel's Second Incompleteness Theorem. Exercises are scattered throughout.

Russell's paradox arises when we consider those sets that do not belong to themselves. Intuitionistic logic, model theory and forcing (Studies in logic and the foundations of mathematics). The collection of such sets cannot constitute a set. Step back a bit. Logical formulas define sets (in a standard model). Formulas, being mathematical objects, can be thought of as sets cs reduces to set theory. Consider those formulas that do not belong to the set they define.

Melvin "Mel" Fitting (born January 24, 1942) is a logician with special interests in philosophical logic and tableau proof systems. He was a Professor at City University of New York, Lehman College and the Graduate Center. 723–724 from 1968 to 2013. At the Graduate Center he was in the departments of Computer Science, Philosophy, and Mathematics, and at Lehman College he was in the department of Mathematics and Computer Science. He is now Professor emeritus.

Russell's paradox arises when we consider those sets that do not belong to themselves. The collection of such sets cannot constitute a set. Step back a bit. Logical formulas define sets (in a standard model). Formulas, being mathematical objects, can be thought of as sets themselves-mathematics reduces to set theory. Consider those formulas that do not belong to the set they define. The collection of such formulas is not definable by a formula, by the same argument that Russell used. This quickly gives Tarski's result on the undefinability of truth. Variations on the same idea yield the famous results of Gödel, Church, Rosser, and Post. This book gives a full presentation of the basic incompleteness and undecidability theorems of mathematical logic in the framework of set theory. Corresponding results for arithmetic follow easily, and are also given. Gödel numbering is generally avoided, except when an explicit connection is made between set theory and arithmetic.
