SUMMARY:Axiomatic Thinking, Lisbon, Portugal
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20171011
DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20171014
LOCATION:Lisbon, Portugal
DESCRIPTION:100 years ago, in 1917 David Hilbert g
ave his seminal talk Axiomatisches Denken at a mee
ting of the Swiss Mathematical Society in Zurich.
It marks the beginning of Hilbert's return to his
foundational studies, which ultimately resulted in
the establishment of proof theory as a new branch
in the emerging field of mathematical logic. The
aim of this conference is to reevaluate the succe
ss of Hilbert's axiomatic method, which did not on
ly lay the foundations for the understanding of mo
dern mathematics, but which also found its way in
many applications, first of all - and as vividly a
dvocated by Hilbert - in Physics. On Wednesday 11
, the conference will take place in the beautiful
main hall of Academia das Ciências de Lisboa. That
day is fully dedicated to the Foundations of Math
ematics. For the remaining days, the conference mo
ves to the campus of Faculdade de Ciências e Tecno
logia of Universidade Nova de Lisboa (across from
the Tagus river), and the topic of the conference
widens to other aspects of Axiomatic Thinking, not
only in Mathematics but also in Physics and other
fields of science. Also, philosophical and method
ological aspects of Axiomatic Thinking will be dis
cussed.
