If 'his findings' is Gödel's incompleteness theorem, then they don't
need representing. His papers[1] stand on their own two feet.

Let it be noted that he who wished to learn about Gödel's incompleteness
theorem for the first time can read a range of stuff of far more
pedagogic value than [1].

[1] I know of two presentations of Gödel's and both are in both of
- Martin Davis (ed), The undecidable, and
- Feferman et al (eds), Gödel's collected papers.
