- Gödel numbering
- A process whereby a unique number can be associated with any formula of a logical system. This is an essential step in realizing the goal of metamathematics, that the proofs of a system should themselves be treated as mathematical objects. By Gödel numbering claims made within the language about proofs and theorems may be mapped onto arithmetical claims.

Gödel numbering for sequences — A Gödel numbering for sequences provides us an effective way to represent each finite sequence of natural numbers as a single natural number. Of course, the embedding is surely possible set theoretically, but the emphasis is on the effectiveness… … Wikipedia
Gödel number — In mathematical logic, a Gödel numbering is a function that assigns to each symbol and well formed formula of some formal language a unique natural number called its Gödel number. The concept was first used by Kurt Gödel for the proof of his… … Wikipedia
Numbering (computability theory) — In computability theory a numbering is the assignment of natural numbers to a set of objects like rational numbers, graphs or words in some language. A numbering can be used to transfer the idea of computability and related concepts, which are… … Wikipedia
Proof sketch for Gödel's first incompleteness theorem — This article gives a sketch of a proof of Gödel s first incompleteness theorem. This theorem applies to any formal theory that satisfies certain technical hypotheses which are discussed as needed during the sketch. We will assume for the… … Wikipedia
Complete numbering — In computability theory complete numberings are generalizations of Gödel numbering first introduced by A.I. Mal tsev in 1963. They are studied because several important results like the Kleene s recursion theorem and Rice s theorem, which were… … Wikipedia
Cylindric numbering — In computability theory a cylindric numbering is a special kind of numbering first introduced by Yuri L. Ershov in 1973. If a numberings ν is reducible to μ then there exists a computable function f with . Usually f is not injective but if μ is a … Wikipedia
