Foundations of mathematics. Symposium papers commemorating the sixtieth birthday of Kurt Gödel. (English) Zbl 0169.00102

Berlin-Heidelberg-New York: Springer-Verlag 1969. xii, 195 p. (1969).
Kurt Gödel’s sixtieth birthday (April 28, 1966) and the thirty-fifth anniversary of the publication of his theorems on undecidability were celebrated during the 75th Anniversary Meeting of the Ohio Academy of Science at The Ohio State University, Columbus, on April 22, 1966. The celebration took the form of a Festschrift Symposium on a theme supported by the late Director of The Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, New Jersey, J. Robert Oppenheimer: “Logic, and its relations to mathematics, natural science, and philosophy.” The symposium also celebrated the founding of Section L (Mathematical Sciences) of the Ohio Academy of Science.
