About the Authors
  • Volume II, on formal (ZFC) set theory, incorporates a self-contained "chapter 0" on proof techniques so that it is based on formal logic, in the style of Bourbaki. The emphasis on basic techniques provides a solid foundation in set theory and a thorough context for the presentation of advanced topics (such as absoluteness, relative consistency results, two expositions of Godel's construstive universe, numerous ways of viewing recursion and Cohen forcing).

    •   User-friendly extensive discussion of issues that arise at the interface of axiomatics and mathematical 'reality'
    •   Careful use of formal logic in proofs
    •   Advanced self-contained topics such as: internal models, absoluteness, induction and inductive operators, constructible universe, Cohen forcing
