Title: What does "depth" mean in math? History, Foundations, and Logic.
Abstract: Every mathematician believes that certain theorems are "deep," but the concept of depth does not have a formal definition. By looking at some famous theorems, ancient and modern, we will
study some candidates for "depth" at various levels, particularly
the undergraduate level. With these examples in hand we hope to
discuss whether any concepts of logic now available can give "depth"
a precise meaning.
