Professor Welch to appear on BBC’s In Our Time
7 October 2008
Philip Welch, Professor of Mathematical Logic in the Department of Mathematics, is one of the participants in this week’s edition of In Our Time with Melvyn Bragg on BBC Radio 4.
Professor Welch will discuss Kurt Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorems, ‘what they say about mathematics, the historical context in which Gödel developed them and the implication of the theorems for our understanding of mathematics and physics’. Other guests are Professors Marcus Du Sautoy from the University of Oxford and John Barrow from the University of Cambridge.
In Our Time is broadcast on Thursdays at 9am and repeated at 9.30pm. The programme's website features a complete audio archive of past editions.
