  3. Mathematical Logic and Foundations - Dave Rusin; The Mathematical Atlas
    A short article designed to provide an introduction to mathematical deduction. The subject has origins in philosophy, and indeed it is only by nonmathematical argument that one can show the usual rules for inference and deduction (law of excluded middle; cut rule; etc.) are valid. It is also a legacy from philosphy that we can distinguish semantic reasoning ("what is true?") from syntactic reasoning ("what can be shown?"). The first leads to Model Theory, the second, to Proof Theory. History; applications and related fields and subfields; textbooks, reference works, and tutorials; software and tables; other web sites with this focus. more>>

  4. Set Theory and Foundations (MathPages) - Kevin Brown
    About 30 "informal notes" by Kevin Brown on set theory and foundations: what is fuzzy logic, fractal logic, Cantor's diagonal proof, are all triangles isosceles?, on Gauss's mountains, problems with the luminiferous aether, and many more. more>>
