### Decidability of equality of expressions built using 1,+,-,*,/,^

Consider expressions built using number $1$, arithmetical operators $+, -, *, /$ and exponentiation ^ (in case of multiple values, the principal value is assumed, the same way as it implemented in ...

### Decidability of periodic tilings of the plane

I'm interested in tilings of the plane by squares, with labels on the edges. It's well known that (1) the question "can one tile the plane with the following finite set of tiles?" is undecidable, and (...

### For which Millennium Problems does undecidable -> true?

Three good answers were received — by Alex Gavrilov, Bjørn Kjos-Hanssen, and Terry Tao — and the bounty has been awarded (somewhat arbitrarily) to Alex Gavrilov. The answers ...

### Decidability of equality of elementary expressions

In the following definition the term expression is to be understood as a finite tree built from formal symbols without any predefined meaning assigned to them. Define the set $\mathcal{E}$ of ...

### Is the field of constructible numbers known to be decidable?

By the field of constructible numbers I mean the union of all finite towers of real quadratic extensions beginning with $\mathbb{Q}$. By decidable I mean the set of first order truths in this field, ...

### Is equivalence of functions built from nested exponentiations a decidable problem?

Let $\mathcal{E}$ be the minimal set of symbolic expressions (without any predefined meaning) such that The symbol $x$ is in $\mathcal{E}$, and If expressions $P,Q\in\mathcal{E}$, then the ...

### Is compass and straight edge geometry complete?

Euclid's first three postulates are the basis of compass and straight edge constructions which are as complex as arithmetic. The constructions themselves may be expressed as a formula with each of ...
