Tuesday we will cover Russell's Paradox, the nature of the ordinals and the Burali Forti Paradox. This draws from the book <i>The Infinite</i>, by A.W. Moore which is available as an e-text through our library, though the accompanying slides should be adequate. Thursday we will cover Gödel's incompleteness results. Slides on this draw mostly from Chapter 12 of the same book.<br /><br />Tuesday turn-in homework is the following question:<br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">State the specific contradictions implied by (a) Russell's Paradox and (b) The Burali-Forti Paradox. In what interesting sense do the <u>proofs </u>of these results resemble each other? <br /><div><br /></div></blockquote><br />Thursday's turn-in homework is the following question:<br /><br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">Clearly identify <u>three</u> significant errors in the following.</blockquote><blockquote class="tr_bq">Church's theorem shows that predicate logic is incomplete. This means that there will never come a time when we can be sure that it is finished. Gödel proved the same thing about math, showing that there are mathematical truths that we will never be able to prove.</blockquote><br />G.

At the end of class we started problem 2 as follows:<br /><div><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-duh9WOAfqnA/WgXlmHmngRI/AAAAAAAAQiA/8EbGyiiDwUEwFyo9uI2dvfucB2Gzdvd8ACLcBGAs/s1600/powersetproblem.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="156" data-original-width="435" height="114" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-duh9WOAfqnA/WgXlmHmngRI/AAAAAAAAQiA/8EbGyiiDwUEwFyo9uI2dvfucB2Gzdvd8ACLcBGAs/s320/powersetproblem.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div><div><br /></div><div>The obvious next move is to do a <span style="font-family: "symbol";">"</span>E on line 3. But the question is what do you eliminate to? The important thing to see is that you are not restricted simply to name letters, like a, b and c. You already know this, because, e.g., you can eliminate to functions like f(a) or g(a,b). So this applies to sets as well. For example, if I know that <span style="font-family: "symbol";">"</span>xFx, then I know that <u>every single thing</u> has the property F. So, e.g., since <u>sets</u> are now things for us, I could us <span style="font-family: "symbol";">"E</span> to infer that F{a,b}. Think, then, about the definition of a power set and this allows you to infer from the information provided on line 2. This will also tell you how to perform the <span style="font-family: "symbol";">"E</span>. </div><div><br /></div><div>Thursday is test 2, which will cover all of the material we've done since the first test. On the schedule this will be HW's 10-20. The test will have basically the same design as the first test, drawing all proofs from actual homework problems, but providing new models and formulas for interpretation. As before, I will supply any models used the day before the exam. I will provide a set of inference rules updated with the rules for modal logic, free logic, and definitions of set-theoretic relations. (It will not contain the quantifier rules for predicate logic itself.)</div><div><br /></div></div>G.
