For most of its history, mathematics was fairly constructive: • Euclidean geometry was based on geometric construction. • Algebra sought explicit solutions to equations. Analysis, probability, etc. were focused on calculations. Nineteenth century developments in analysis challenged this view. A sequence (an) in a metric space is said Cauchy if for every ε > 0, there is an m such that for every n, n ≥ m, d (a n , a n ) < ε
