Not True! Counterexamples and Paradoxes
Lecture no. 17 from the course: Prove It: The Art of Mathematical Argument
Taught by Professor Bruce H. Edwards | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
You’ve studied proofs. How about disproofs? How do you show that a conjecture is false? Experience the fun of finding counterexamples. Then explore some famous paradoxes in mathematics, including Bertrand Russell’s barber paradox, which shook the foundations of set theory.
