    Lightbulb G'day!

    "G'day" is a typical Aussie-ism by way of greeting.

    I will shortly turn 70, was told in secondary school that I had "a good head" for mathematics, but, as it turned out, not much good at remembering formulae or procedures. At this 'later' stage in my life I find a need to explore issues that I lack the formal mathematical training to accomplish. I would like to achieve some sort of functional facility in Set Theory and eventually, its application in Logic.

    Yeh, I know, don't want much do I. Let's start with how best to use MHF to this end?

    G'day from a fellow Aussie. My advice is to get a good book on Set Theory or find something online. Then post any questions you have to help your understanding. I'm sure there are lots of people here who can help. Good on you!!

    Re: G'day!

    Thanks Debsta. This came about because I am trying to get my head around paradoxes and how they may be described logically/mathematically. It so happened that I came across reference to Russell's Paradox and, in reading on that, came across statements about sets that made me realise I have only a very basic - and undoubtedly naive notion of the topic. So I've begun by leaving Russell alone for the time being and begun getting some info. about the concept(s) sets.
    Thanks from topsquark
