Does finite math need the Axiom of Infinity?
"maybe you could do it without" - I don't think you can. Goodstein's Theorem cannot be proved in PA, and I'm quite sure it cannot be proved in ZFC minus the axiom of infinity either. |

Linear transformation that preserves the determinant.
Of course - just missed that. It may actually make the claim easier to prove, I'm not sure. |

Examples of great mathematical writing
Although my French is fairly weak, I was able to read and immensely enjoy Serre's "Cours d'Arithmetique". Clear, motivated, engaging and simply memorable. "Trees" is incredible. |
