    One thought on “Math Girls 3: Godel's Incompleteness Theorems”

    1. An interesting introduction to Godel's Incompleteness Theorems. Starting with number theory, set theory, formal systems, and logic, the book slowly builds up the knowledge required to understand Godel's proof. It tries to avoid metaphysics and philosophical discussions by having its characters constantly dissuade each other from trying to make grandiose statements about mathematics being "incomplete", sticking mostly to an explanation of Godel's proof.For those looking for some development to th [...]

    2. This series is one that I feel absolutely ought to exist, the math is well written and the romance isn't terrible, as far as I can judge.Pros:The math in this one ties together pretty nicely.The plot seems to be advancing over the books.Cons:I read while walking to work and it gets too complicated near the end to not sit down and think about it so I ended up skimming a bit.A little bit of endless unresolved love triangle. Though like I said the plot seems to be advancing. I need to go over my CS [...]

    3. Not as entertaining as the other books in the series, in my opinion. Maybe that's due to me not being so keen on meta-mathematics that this book is all about. Also, I would have liked the plot to progress a little bit more. Still, an interesting journey to Gödel with these Japanese students.
