Questions of this nature belong to thetheoretical realm of mathematics. This book is an introduction to that realm. This book will initiate you into an esoteric world. You will learn andapply the methods of thought that mathematicians use to verify theorems,explore mathematical truth and create new mathematical theories/5(6).

The development of proof theory can be naturally divided into: the prehistory of the notion of proof in ancient logic and mathematics; the discovery by Frege that mathematical proofs, and not only the propositions of mathematics, can (and should) be represented in a logical system; Hilbert's old axiomatic proof theory; failure of the aims of Cited by: 5.

In the second group the proofs will be selected mainly for their charm. Simplicity being a source of beauty, selection of proofs into the second group is hard and, by necessety, subjective. The first of the collection is due to John Conway which I came across in a book by R.

Honsberger. proofs. This is the study of proofs as objects of independent interest. Third, to study what kind of additional information can be extracted from proofs beyond the truth of the theorem being proved.

Although Elementary Set Theory is well-known and straightforward, the modern subject, Axiomatic Set Theory, is both conceptually more difficult and more interesting.

Complex issues arise in Set Theory more than any other area of pure mathematics; in particular, Mathematical Logic is used in a fundamental way. Note: Citations are based on reference standards.
