Refutation of Chaitin's Theorem of Incompleteness © Copyright 2017 by Colin James III All Rights Reserved.

Authors: Colin James III

We evaluate Chaitin's incompleteness theorem of 1974. Martin Davis described it as “a dramatic extension of Gödel’s incompleteness theorem” in 1978. We find the approach of the conjecture is moot, refute Chaitin's theorem of incompleteness, and remark that Chaitin's constant is suspicious.
