Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Godel number: natural number that encodes mathematical and logical statements by a certain method. The symbols such as +, -, =,(, etc. are in turn encoded by primes and subsequently multiplied, so they can be uniquely reconstructed by prime factorization. Gödel numbers make it possible to create directories of formulas and perform proofs of completeness or incompleteness.

Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.
