Project description

Hindman’s theorem is a milestone in Combinatorics which gives rise to long-standing open problems in Mathematical Logic. The study of Ramsey’s theorem and Goodstein sequences is closely related to the research on Hindman’s theorem and provides useful methods to adapt in this case. The project aims to investigate and classify the computational strength of Hindman’s theorem and its alternative formulations.
