# The Collected Works of Julia Robinson

Share this page *Edited by *
*Solomon Feferman*

This volume presents all the published
works—spanning more than thirty years—of Julia Bowman
Robinson. These papers constitute important contributions to the theory
of effectively calculable functions and to its applications. Outstanding
among the latter are Robinson's proof of the effective unsolvability of
the decision problem for the rational number field (and, consequently
of that for the first-order theory of all fields), and her work
that provided the central step toward the negative solution of
Hilbert's Tenth Problem. These results provide upper bounds for what one
can hope to obtain in the way of positive solutions to the
decision problem for special classes of fields and for special classes
of diophantine equations, respectively. Besides thematic
unity, Robinson's papers are distinguished by their clarity of purpose
and accessibility to non-specialists as well as specialists.

The volume also includes an extensive biographical memoir on the life
and work of Robinson, who will be remembered not only for
her distinctive and vital contributions, but also as the first woman to
be elected to the mathematical section of the National Academy
of Sciences and as the first woman to be President of the
American Mathematical Society.
