Ideals and exceptional sets in Polish spaces

04 - 08 June 2018
Organisers :
  • Márton Elekes
  • Slawomir Solecki
Exceptional sets play an important role in numerous branches of mathematics, for instance in measure theory, topology, harmonic and complex analysis, Banach space theory, algebraic geometry, combinatorics, probability and ergodic theory, set theory and descriptive set theory, just to mention a few. Exceptional sets describe notions of smallness from various ...

Bernoulli Lecture - Compact Spaces and Logic

21 June 2018
Organisers :
  • Slawomir Solecki

Fraïssé theory is a method in classical Model Theory of producing canonical limits of certain families of finite structures. For example, the random graph is the Fraïssé limit of the family of all finite graphs. It turns out that this method can be dualized, with the ...
