Book Title: The Collected Works of Julia Robinson

Author: Solomon Feferman (editor)

Book Description:

Julia Robinson is best known for her work on Hilbert's Tenth Problem and the unsolvability of certain decision problems. She was the first woman mathematician to be elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1975, and the first woman to be president of the American Mathematical Society.


Her work provided inspiration for the research in my Ph.D. thesis.
