L.E.J. Brouwer, fifty years later

Amsterdam, 9 december 2016
Luitzen Egbertus Jan Brouwer (27 February 1881 – 2 December 1966), was an influential Dutch mathematician and philosopher, who worked in topology, set theory, measure theory and complex analysis. On December 6, 1966 Brouwer died as a consequence of a traffic accident. Brouwer had by then put his ever-lasting mark on mathematics, logic and philosophy. In mathematics he revolutionized topology with his dimension theory, fixed point theorems and homotopy theory. In logic he became the founding father of intuitionism, with its constructive approach to mathematics and logic that is also relevant in theoretical computer science. In philosophy he questioned our very perception of mathematical reality.

On December 9, 2016, there will be a one-day symposium at the Science Park in Amsterdam:
