Andrzej Mostowski and foundational studies by
Andrzej Ehrenfeucht(
)
10 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 1,350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Andrzej Mostowski was one of the leading 20th century logicians. His legacy is examined in this volume of papers devoted both to his extraordinary scientific heritage and to the memory of him as a great researcher, teacher, organizer of science and human. Professor Mostowski pioneered and mastered many areas of mathematical logic. His contributions spanned set theory, recursion theory, and model theory  the backbone of foundations of mathematics. He is best known of the KleeneMostowski and DavisMostowsi hierarchies of properties of integers reflecting the complexity of their definitions, and of the very elegant concept of a generalized quantifier which inspired and keeps stimulating a stream of deep work on fundamental issues of logics, deduction and rasoning both in mathematics and in computer science, and also of the contributions and excellent lectures on undecidability, unprovability, consistency and independence of various statements in set theory and arithmetic following Gödel, Tarski and Cohen. he overall content of the volume is designed to cover the current main streams in the field. For many years after WWII, especially in the late sixties, till his untimely death in 1975, Warsaw  where he led the centre of foundational studies  was a placewhere many leading logicians visited, studied, and started their career. Their memories form an important part of this volume, attempting to bring back the extraordinary achievements and personality of Mostowski

Undecidable theories by
Alfred Tarski(
Book
)
48 editions published between 1953 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This graduatelevel book is well known for its proof that many mathematical systems  including lattice theory, abstract projective geometry, and closure algebras  are undecidable. Based on research conducted from 1938 to 1952, it consists of three treatises by a prolific author who ranks among the greatest logicians of all time. The first article, "A general method in proofs of undecidability," examines theories with standard formalization, undecidable theories, interpretability, and relativization of quantifiers. The second feature, "Undecidability and essential undecidability in mathematics," explores definability in arbitrary theories and the formalized arithmetic of natural numbers. It also considers recursiveness, definability, and undecidability in subtheories of arithmetic as well as the extension of results to other arithmetical theories. The compilation concludes with "Undecidability of the elementary theory of groups."Back cover
