Building on course notes from my experiences teaching mathematical logic over the past few years, I am currently writing a book tentatively titled Mathematical Logic for Mathematicians. Please contact me if you would like to see the current version.
I'm currently in the process of creating an online
that discusses, at an elementary yet honest level, the basics of the mathematician's craft. I've only written a few pages so far, but I hope to work on it during my spare time.
