University of Leeds, 11 – 14 September 2018


Hermann Weyl (1885-1955) was perhaps one of the last mathematicians to produce profound, influential work across a vast territory in mathematics, physics and philosophy. In 1918, Weyl published a short book with the title “Das Kontinuum” in which he proposed a highly original, radically new foundation of analysis, showing how large portions of 19th century analysis can be developed by assuming only the natural numbers.

The conference will feature recent research in predicativity, with special focus on Weyl’s legacy today. It will bring together mathematicians, computer scientists, and philosophers of mathematics working in areas related to predicativity, on this centennial anniversary of the publication of Das Kontinuum.
