The system (25) is decoupled by applying the diagonalization method of [13] to matrix M, which transforms it into a diagonal mass matrix, [M.
The use of several thousand terms in a wave function leads to memory problems arising from storage of the matrix elements prior to the matrix diagonalization step at least for dense matrices that result from the introduction of interelectronic coordinates into the wave function.

They continue to present material in a two-semester format, the first on computability theory (enumerability, diagonalization, Turing compatibility, uncomputability, abacus computability, recursive functions, recursive sets and relations, equivalent definitions of computability) and basic metalogic (syntax, semantics, the undecidability of first-order logic, models and their existence, proofs and completeness, arithmetization, representability of recursive functions, indefinability, undecidability, incompleteness and the unprobability of inconsistency).
