A Note on the Relation Between Formal and Informal Proof

Acta Analytica 25 (4):447-458 (2010)
Abstract
Using Carnap’s concept explication, we propose a theory of concept formation in mathematics. This theory is then applied to the problem of how to understand the relation between the concepts formal proof (deduction) and informal, mathematical proof.
