Still, it will turn out to be ‘modest amount of arithmetic’ needed to get Theorem 2 to ﬂy, and also containing Q gives us a ‘suﬃciently strong arithmetic’ in the sense of Theorem 6.<br /><br />Should the "it will turn out to be" be "it will turn out that the"?<br /><br />Also should be a comma after "and also containing Q".<br /><br />- - - - -<br /><br />Minor detail at the end of section 12 on p 6:<br /><br />"The answer will emerge over shortly enough" reads oddly to me.<br /><br />- - - - -<br /><br />Last sentence before 13.1: missing space between "and" and PI_1.<br /><br />- - - - -<br /><br />2nd sentence of 1st para of 13.1:<br /><br />"We can now express such claims in formal arithmetics like Q and PA wﬀs of the shape ..."<br /><br />Should be "... using wffs of the shape ...".<br /><br />- - - - -<br /><br />Proof of Theorem 17 on p 8:<br /><br />Two (separate) "then"s in the 2nd sentence when only one ought to be needed.<br /><br />The proof concludes:<br /><br />Contraposing, if T is consistent, it proves any Π1 sentence it proves is true.<br /><br />Is that what was intended? Or should it be only that if T is consistent, any Π1 sentence it proves is true. (Taking out the "it proves" before "any".)a.c.noreply@blogger.com
