             Friday 14th December 2012, University of Leicester

2012 is the Centenary of the birth of Reuben Louis Goodstein, the first

In honour of Goodstein and his legacy, we are organizing a day recognizing
his impact on the development of Mathematical Logic, worldwide, in the UK
and at Leicester.

The list of distinguished speakers includes:

Harvey Rose (Bristol), Jan von Plato (Helsinki), Stanley Wainer (Leeds),
Mathieu Marion/Mitsuhiro Okada (Montreal/Keio, Japan), Mike Price
(Leicester), Mary Walmsley (Leicester).

Topics will include:

* Goodstein's theorem in the light of the Bernays-Goodstein correspondence
* Goodstein sequences and independence of Peano arithmetic
* Goodstein and Wittgenstein
* Goodstein and the Mathematical Association
* We are also hoping to have a panel discussion entitled 'Goodstein
* 'Remembered', where any delegate can share memories and thoughts of

We anticipate there will be a number of ex-colleagues and students of
Goodstein, and members of the Goodstein family in attendance, and a small
evening dinner for speakers and organisers, and guests.

The meeting is supported by the London Mathematical Society, and there are
a number of bursaries available to UK research students to enable them to
attend the meeting. Registration is free.
