Read e-book online El Paraíso de Cantor: La Tradición Conjuntista en la PDF

De Prefacio:
Este libro es una historia razonada de los angeles tradición conjuntista, desde los primeros escritos de Cantor hasta los angeles publicación de los teoremas de Cohen (1963) y su impacto inmediato. Hago una que otra alusión a Kronecker y me ocupo, cuando hace falta, de Poincaré, pero los angeles importante oposición de Brouwer y Weyl sólo los angeles menciono al paso, sin analizarla, porque el propio Hilbert, que explícitamente outline su empresa filosófica como una defensa de las matemáticas contra ellos, no se dio el trabajo de estudiarlos. Con todo, para el lector curioso, explico brevemente en el Apéndice XIX algunas principles de Brouwer que preceden y motivan l. a. declaración de guerra de Hilbert. En cambio, no me ha parecido oportuno examinar en el presente contexto l. a. fundamentación constructivista del análisis, propuesta inicialmente por Weyl (1918), poco antes de su conversión al brouwerismo, y desarrollada mucho más tarde por Lorenzen (1965) y Bishop (1967).
El libro consta de tres partes, correspondientes a tres etapas en los angeles historia del conjuntismo. El presente volumen contiene las partes 1 y 2. los angeles parte three todavía no está escrita. los angeles parte 1, titulada “Conjuntos”, se refiere a los angeles fundación de los angeles teoría de conjuntos por Cantor, las paradojas que se le enrostran, y los angeles axiomatización de los angeles teoría por Zermelo (1908) y sus continuadores. l. a. parte 2, titulada “Cálculos” gira en torno al programa de Hilbert para darle a l. a. teoría de conjuntos un fundamento intuitivo incontestable, garantizando así a los matemáticos el disfrute del paraíso que – según frase del mismo Hilbert – Cantor ha creado para ellos. Estudia los antecedentes de dicho programa en las obras de Frege, Peano, Dedekind, Russell y Whitehead, y Skolem; su desarrollo en los angeles década de 1920 por Hilbert y sus seguidores; y el inesperado escollo que le salió al encuentro con los hallazgos de Gödel. los angeles parte three, “Modelos”, examinará l. a. contribución al conjuntismo de los métodos semánticos introducidos desde 1930 por Gödel y Tarski.
Pienso que el libro puede servir como introducción histórica al tema. Para leerlo, no es preciso tener conocimientos previos al respecto, pero sí el hábito de leer definiciones y demostraciones matemáticas. Cualquiera que haya seguido cursos universitarios de matemáticas por más de un año tiene ese hábito en los angeles medida requerida aquí. Por otra parte, creo que una character acostumbrada a leer prosa filosófica puede adquirirlo directamente en este mismo libro. Supongo, sí, que el lector filósofo que se interese en él habrá hecho estudios de lógica. Por otra parte, confío en que el lector con educación matemática pero sin estudios de lógica podrá extraer del Apéndice IX (pp. 480-502) toda l. a. información requerida.

Ideally, decisions about health-care should be based on the doctor’s clinical judgment, patient preference, and scientific evidence. Patients should always be presented with options in their care. Elective cesarean section, however, is not used to treat a problem but to avoid a natural process. An elective surgery like this puts the patient at unnecessary risk, increases the risk for complications in future deliveries, and increases health-care costs.

Haydn developed the string quartet from the eighteenth-century divertimento, giving more substance to the light, popular form and scoring it for two violins, a viola, and a cello. His eighty-three quartets, written over the course of his creative lifetime, evolved slowly into a sophisticated form. Together they constitute one of the most important bodies of chamber-music literature. (Robert Hickok, Exploring Music) ★28. A person never becomes truly self-reliant. Even though he deals effectively with things, he is necessarily dependent upon those who have taught him to do so.

An understanding of the overall operation of the economic system puts the business executive in a better position to formulate policies. The executive who understands the causes and consequences of inflation is better equipped during inflationary periods to make more-intelligent decisions than otherwise. (Campbell R. ) ★16. Bear one thing in mind before you begin to write your paper: Famous literary works, especially works regarded as classics, have been thoroughly studied to the point where prevailing opinion on them has assumed the character of orthodoxy.
