Constructive analysis
In mathematics, constructive analysis is mathematical analysis done according to some principles of constructive mathematics.This contrasts with classical analysis, which (in this context) simply mean
Intuitionistic type theory
Intuitionistic type theory (also known as constructive type theory, or Martin-Löf type theory) is a type theory and an alternative foundation of mathematics.Intuitionistic type theory was created by P

In a controversy over the foundations of mathematics, in twentieth-century mathematics, L. E. J. Brouwer, a proponent of the constructivist school of intuitionism, opposed David Hilbert, a proponent o
Constructive set theory
Constructive set theory is an approach to mathematical constructivism following the program of axiomatic set theory.The same first-order language with "" and "" of classical set theory is usually used
Heyting arithmetic
In mathematical logic, Heyting arithmetic is an axiomatization of arithmetic in accordance with the philosophy of intuitionism. It is named after Arend Heyting, who first proposed it.
Peirce's law
In logic, Peirce's law is named after the philosopher and logician Charles Sanders Peirce. It was taken as an axiom in his first axiomatisation of propositional logic. It can be thought of as the law

Spread (intuitionism)
In intuitionistic mathematics, a species is a collection (similar to a classical set in that a species is determined by its members). A spread is a particular kind of species of infinite sequences def
