DESCRIPTION:In this talk we would like to present
the Lawvere's fixed point theorem, which is a gene
ralisation of the Cantor-Russell-Turing-Gödel argu
ment in a sufficiently nice category. We will show
how it implies straightforwardly Cantor's theorem
and Russell's paradox, various versions of the Li
ar paradox. With a bit of work we will deduce Tars
ki's result about the undefinability of truth and
Gödel's incompleteness theorem, as well as results
from computability theory, such as the undecidabi
lity of the halting problem and the existence of f
ixed point combinators in λ-calculus. For more in
formation, see http://www.illc.uva.nl/coollogic/ o
