Leo Anthony Harrington (born May 17, 1946) is a professor of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley who works in recursion theory, model theory, and set theory.

  • Harrington and Saharon Shelah showed that the first order theory of the partially ordered set of recursively enumerable Turing degrees is undecidable.[3]
