Logic in the 21st Century

The June 2000 Association of Symbolic Logic Annual Meeting included a panel discussion on "The Prospects of Mathematical Logic in the Twenty-First Century". From that workshop came this paper, an interesting view of the future of logic. Richard Shore, Sam Buss, Anand Pillay and Alexander Kechris each wrote a section giving their views in the areas of recursion theory, proof theory, model theory and set theory respectively.

Mathematical Logic forms the foundation of computer science and the logic community often looks to the computer science community for directions and applications. The sections on recursion and proof theory really bring out this connection.
