FYS 1023 - To Infinity and Beyond

Hours: 4
Concepts of infinity trace back at least as far as the ancient Greeks, with significant connections to philosophy, theology, and mathematics. Infinity also has strong metaphorical connotations in modern culture. This course will trace the historical development of infinity while also exploring the 20th century revolutions in understanding the nature of the infinite in logic and mathematics.
