Topic

Undecided propositions and their applications

Abstract

We will start from the motivation of ZFC and ZFC axioms. Then some examples of undecided propositions in ZFC set theory will be discussed. We will explain how to use some undecided propositions in ZFC to answer a couple of open questions raised by several mathematicians.
