David Asperó – Special $\aleph_2$-Aronszajn trees and GCH
Talk held by David Asperó (University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK) at the KGRC seminar on 2018-10-22. Abstract: In joint work with Mohammad Golshani, and assuming the existence of a weakly compact cardinal, we build a forcing extension in which GCH holds and every $\aleph_2$-Aronszajn tree is special. This answers a well-kn[...]

Monroe Eskew – Rigid ideals
Talk held by Monroe Eskew (KGRC) at the KGRC seminar on 2018-10-18. Abstract: Using ideas from Foreman-Magidor-Shelah, one can force from a Wooden cardinal to show it is consistent that the nonstationary ideal on $\omega_1$ is saturated while the quotient boolean algebra is rigid. The key is to apply Martin's Axiom to the almost-disjoint coding forcing to…[...]

Scholar Social

A Mastodon instance for academics

Scholar Social is meant for: researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"A Mastodon profile you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
