Filippo Calderoni - The bi-embeddability relation for countable abelian groups
Talk held by Filippo Calderoni (Università di Torino, Italy and Politecnico di Torino, Italy) at the KGRC seminar on 2018-04-26. Abstract: We analyze the Borel complexity of the bi‑embeddability relation for different classes of countable abelian groups. Most notably, we use the Ulm theory to prove tha ...

Diana Carolina Montoya - On some ideals associated with independent families
Talk held by Diana Carolina Montoya (KGRC) at the KGRC research seminar on 2018-04-19. Abstract: The concept of independence was first introduced by Fichtenholz and Kantorovic to study the space of linear functionals on the unit interval. Since then, independent families have been an important object of study ...

Alexei Kolesnikov: Homology groups in model theory.
Thursday, April 19, 2018, from 4 to 5:30pm East Hall, room 3088 Speaker: Alexei Kolesnikov (Towson University) Title: Homology groups in model theory. Abstract: Higher-dimensional amalgamation properties played a key role in settling several questions in classification theory. It turns out that these properties, suitably formulated, are non-trivial even for ...

Menahem Magidor: Compactness and Incompactness
Place: Fields Institute (Room 210) Date: April 6, 2018 (13:30-15:00) Speaker: Menahem Magidor Title: Compactness and Incompactness Abstract: The problems we shall discuss are examples of compactness (or dually a reflection) problems.

Yair Hayut:
BIU seminar in Set Theory April 8, 2018 Speaker: Yair Hayut (TAU) Title: Filter compactness and squares Abstract. Strongly compact cardinals are characterized by the property that any $\kappa$-complete filter can be extended to a $\kappa$-complete ultrafilter. When restricting the cardinality of the underlying set, we obtain a nontrivial hierarchy. For example, when requiring the… ...
