Daniel T. Soukup – New aspects of ladder system uniformization II
Talk held by Daniel Soukup (KGRC) at the KGRC seminar on 2018-12-13. Abstract: We continue the previous lecture and present proofs for some of the new results. We show that $\diamondsuit$ implies that for any Aronszajn-tree $T$, there is a ladder system with a 2-colouring with no $T$-uniformization. However, if $\diamondsuit^[...]

Asaf Karagila: On countable unions of countable sets
BIU seminar in Set Theory December 17, 2018 Speaker: Asaf Karagila (UEA) Title: On countable unions of countable sets Abstract. How big can countable unions of countable sets be?

Ilijas Farah: On the model theory of C*-algebras
HUJI Logic Seminar 12/December/18, 11 am, in Ross 63. Speaker: Ilijas Farah Title: On the model theory of C*-algebras Abstract. Ultrapowers and reduced products play a central role in the Elliott classification program for separable (nuclear, etc.) C*-algebras.  Although an ultrapower of a separable C*-algebra A is quite different from the reduced product $\e[...]

David Chodounsky: Generic ultrafilters
Place: Fields Institute (Room 210) Date: November 30, 2018 (12:00-1:00) Speaker: David Chodounsky Title: Generic ultrafilters Abstract: S. Todorcevic proved that given the presence of large cardinals, selective ultrafilters are precisely ultrafilters P(omega)/FIN-generic over L(R). We generalize this result. We provide a characterization of P(omega)/I-generic ultrafilters ove[...]

Daniel Soukup – New aspects of ladder system uniformization
Talk held by Daniel Soukup (KGRC) at the KGRC seminar on 2018-11-29. Abstract: Given a tree $T$ of height $\omega_1$, we say that a ladder system colouring $(f_\alpha)_{\alpha\in \lim\omega_1}$ has a $T$-uniformization if there is a function $\varphi$ defined on a subtree $S$ of $T$ so that for any $s\in S_\alpha$ of limit height and a[...]

Saharon Shelah: The spectrum of the existence of a universal model
HUJI Logic Seminar 21 November 2018 Speaker: Saharon Shelah Title: The spectrum of the existence of a universal model Abstract. The existence of a universal model (of a theory T in a cardinal lambda) is a natural question in model theory and set theory. We shall deal with new sufficient conditions for non-existence.[...]

Raphaël Carroy – A dichotomy for topological embeddability between continuous functions
Talk held by Raphaël Carroy (KGRC) at the KGRC seminar on 2018-11-22. Abstract We say a function $f$ embeds (topologically) in a function $g$ when there are two topological embeddings $\sigma$ and $\tau$ satisfying $\tau \circ f = g \circ \sigma$. I will prove the following dicho[...]

Yair Hayut: Chang’s conjecture
HUJI Set Theory Seminar November 21, 2018 Speaker: Yair Hayut Abstract. I will review some consistency results related to Chang's Conjecture (CC). First I will discuss some classical results of deriving instances of CC from huge cardinals and the new results for getting instances of CC from supercompact cardinals, and present some open problems. Then,…[...]

Scholar Social

A Mastodon instance for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform 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 @socrates@scholar.social 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.
