WConsistency
  • In classical deductive logic, a consistent theory is one that does not contain a contradiction. The lack of contradiction can be defined in either semantic or syntactic terms.
  • If these semantic and syntactic definitions are equivalent for any theory formulated using a particular deductive logic, the logic is called complete.
  • A consistency proof is a mathematical proof that a particular theory is consistent. The early development of mathematical proof theory was driven by the desire to provide finitary consistency proofs for all of mathematics as part of Hilbert's program.
