  1. Induction and Explanatory Definitions in Mathematics.Lehet Ellen - forthcoming - Synthese:1-15.
    In this paper, I argue that there are cases of explanatory induction in mathematics. To do so, I first introduce the notion of explanatory definition in the context of mathematical explanation. A large part of the paper is dedicated to introducing and analyzing this notion of explanatory definition and the role it plays in mathematics. After doing so, I discuss a particular inductive definition in advanced mathematics—\-complexes—and argue that it is explanatory. With this, we see that there are cases of (...)
