The Origin of Proof Theory and its Evolution

... First-order logic has sufficient expressive power for the formalization of virtually all of mathematics. A first-order theory consists of a set of axioms (usually finite or recursively enumerable) and the statements deducible from them. Peano arithmetic is a first-order theory commonly formalized in ...

... (2) If we apply the minimization operator to a function f (x, y) that is always positive at x, e.g. ∀y. f (x, y) 6= 0, then it does not produce a value but “diverges,” on some input x. The domain of such a function µy.f (x, y) = 0 is {x : N | ∃y. f (x, y) = 0}. Note, we can represent λx.µy.f (x, y) ...
