Expository paper

It is a shame that expository writing in mathematics is so little valued today. This modest little paper is only one of a great many I would have done, were exposition even half so well rewarded as research.

Hilbert's First and Second Problems and the foundations of mathematics

This article, recently published electronically by Topology Atlas, discusses two (actually, three - I briefly speak about Hilbert's tenth poblem) of the twenty-odd problems Hilbert delivered in a 1900 address at the International Congress of Mathematicians. It was the basis for a one-hour colloquium lecture I gave at the University of Auckland in May, 2000, just three months before the 100th anniversary of Hilbert's lecture.
