**Title: **Convex Geometry and Minkowski’s Linear Forms Theorem in Elementary Function Arithmetic

**Speaker:** Greg Knapp (Case Western Reserve University)

**Advisor:** Colin McLarty (Professor, Case Western Reserve University)

**Abstract: **A classical question in formal logic is “how much mathematics do we need to know in order to prove a given theorem?” Of particular interest is Harvey Friedman’s grand conjecture: that every known mathematical theorem involving only finitary mathematical objects can be proven from Elementary Function Arithmetic (EFA)—a weaker variant of Peano Arithmetic. …Read more.
