By CHONG CHITAT ET AL,Chitat Chong,Qi Feng,Theodore A Slaman,W Hugh Woodin

This quantity relies at the talks given on the Workshop on Infinity and Truth held on the Institute for Mathematical Sciences, nationwide collage of Singapore, from 25 to 29 July 2011. The chapters conceal themes in mathematical and philosophical good judgment that study numerous points of the principles of arithmetic. The subject matter of the amount specializes in easy foundational questions: (i) what's the nature of mathematical fact and the way does one unravel questions which are officially unsolvable in the Zermelo–Fraenkel Set idea with the Axiom of selection, and (ii) Do the discoveries in arithmetic offer facts favoring one philosophical view over others? those matters are mentioned from the vantage element of modern development in foundational studies.

The ultimate bankruptcy gains questions proposed by means of the individuals of the Workshop that might force foundational examine. the big variety of subject matters lined the following could be of curiosity to scholars, researchers and mathematicians thinking about concerns within the foundations of mathematics.
