>VOTING ON THE TOP TEN CONTRIBUTIONS TO MATHEMATICS
>IN THE 20TH CENTURY
Shouldn't one entry to the top math'l contributions in the 20th century be
non-standard models; Skolem, including Lowenheim-Skolem paradox,
the non-standard reals: calculus with legitimate infinitesimals,
and generally the work of Abraham Robinson.
Call it all Model Theory.
Best wishes from Annapolis,
