Born 08 January 1955. Moti Gitik is a mathematician, working in set theory, who is professor at the Tel-Aviv University. He proved the consistency of “all uncountable cardinals are singular” (a strong negation of the axiom of choice) from the consistency of “there is a proper class of strongly compact cardinals”
