FOUNDATIONAL ADVENTURES

Welcome to the web pages of Harvey M. Friedman! I am Distinguished University Professor of Mathematics, Philosophy, and Computer Science Emeritus at The Ohio State University, where I retired in 2012.

You can click on the pages listed on the left column to go where you want to go.

Many of you may want to go to my YouTube site http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdRdeExwKiWndBl4YOxBTEQ or read the Nautilus magazine article at http://nautil.us/issue/45/power/this-man-is-about-to-blow-up-mathematics published online on 2/23/17. The article will appear in print soon.

Of course the title is rather dramatic and took me by surprise. The subtitle “Harvey Friedman is about to bring incompleteness and infinity out of quarantine” is more reassuring – I would prefer “extreme infinity” to “infinity” here. The very thorough fact checking process at Nautilus does not include consultation about titles and subtitles.
