Project description

This project concerns an investigation into three aspects of the relation between mathematics and adaptive logics (AL's): it is investigated how (a) AL's can be used for the formal modeling of the mathematical practice, (b) AL's can solve problems of the foundations of mathematics, and © mathematical techniques can be used for the abstract study of AL's.
