# The Feferman-Schütte ordinal, $\Gamma_0$

From Cantor's Attic

The Feferman-Schütte ordinal, denoted $\Gamma_0$ ("gamma naught"), is the first ordinal fixed point of the $\Gamma$ function, defined via the Veblen function. It figures prominently in the ordinal-analysis of the proof-theoretic strength of several mathematical theories.
