In mathematical logic, the Kanamori–McAloon theorem, due to Kanamori & McAloon (1987), gives an example of an incompleteness in Peano arithmetic, similar to that of the Paris–Harrington theorem. They showed that a certain finitistic special case of a theorem in Ramsey theory due to Erdős and Rado is not provable in Peano arithmetic.
