Sadly, Erik Palmgren passed away in November 2019. An obituary can be found here, and a conference in Erik’s memory will be held on May 7–8 2020: full details. Aside from this notice, Erik’s homepage is preserved here as he left it.
Erik Palmgren's homepage
I am a recruited professor of Mathematical Logic at Stockholm University. My previous affiliation was Uppsala University where I was promoted professor since 2003, and lecturer since 1997.
CV
Research interests
My research is motivated by the constructive point of view of mathematics. This leads to studying the relation between proof and computation. Here mathematical logic has a central role to play, clarifying this relation, through proof theory and theory of computation. In particular, among my research interests are
- Type theory and its models. The relation between type theory and homotopy theory.
- Categorical logic and category-theoretic foundations.
- Constructive mathematics, especially formal topology and reverse constructive mathematics.
- Nonstandard analysis, especially its constructive aspects.
- Philosophy of mathematics related to constructivism
