Kurt Godel was an Austrian-American mathematician who made significant contributions to a number of fields, including mathematics, logic, and philosophy. Godel is best known for his work on the incompleteness theorem, which he proved in his 1931 paper “Über formal unentscheidbare Sätze der Principia Mathematica und verwandter Systeme I.”

Godel was born in 1906 in Brno, Austria-Hungary. He attended the University of Vienna, where he studied mathematics and logic. Godel graduated from the school in 1929 with a degree in mathematics.
