Hossein Lamei Ramandi: $\Sigma^2_2$-absoluteness
Place: Fields Institute (Room 210)
Date: January 25 , 2018 (13:30-15:00)
Speaker: Hossein Lamei Ramandi
Title: $\Sigma^2_2$-absoluteness
Abstract:  We will show there is a $\Sigma^2_2$ sentence $\Phi$ such that both $\Phi$ and $\neg \Phi$ are consistent with $\diamondsuit$. This answers a question due to Woodin.

Moritz Müller – Forcing against bounded arithmetic
Talk held by Moritz Müller (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain) at the KGRC seminar on 2019-01-17. Abstract: We study the following problem. Given a nonstandard model of arithmetic we want to expand it by a binary relation that does something prohibitive, e.g. violates the pigeonhole principle in the sense that it is the graph…[...]

Natasha Dobrinen – Ramsey Theory of the Henson graphs
Abstract: A central question in the theory of ultrahomogeneous relational structures asks, How close of an analogue to the Infinite Ramsey Theorem does it carry? An infinite structure S is ultrahomogeneous if any isomorphism between two finitely generated substructures of S can be extended to an automorphism of S. We say that S has finite [...]

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^[...]

Scholar Social

Federated microblogging 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.

"An academic microblog that 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.
