Greg Chaitin  
From the author of Algorithmic Information Theory, Information, Randomness & Incompleteness, InformationTheoretic Incompleteness, The Limits of Mathematics, The Unknowable, Exploring Randomness, Conversations with a Mathematician, From Philosophy to Program Size, and Meta Math! The site provides "understandable papers" on incompleteness, a list of anthologies to which Chaitin has contributed, and a biography. Chaitin created algorithmic information theory (AIT) and later corrected it to utilize selfdelimiting programs. Subsequent work includes his informationtheoretic approach to Gödel's incompleteness theorem, and the number Ω (Omega).
