Modern Set Theory: Foundations & Applications|
Workshop held at ESSLLI 2011
1-5 August 2011
This workshop is organized by the research networking programme INFTY: New frontiers of infinity: mathematical, philosophical, and computational prospects funded by the European Science Foundation (ESF).
INFTY aims (among other things) at embedding set theory in the wider scope of modern logic and its applications, as represented at the ESSLLI schools. At the moment, the connections between the set theory community and the Logic, Language and Information (LLI) community are sparse, and yet, plenty of points of (potential) research contact exist; to name but one: the theory of infinite games is a central topic in modern set theory and plays an important role in many subfields of the Logic & Computation area of the LLI community. This workshop is funded and organized by INFTY in order to:
In order to make the workshop more accessible to a broad audience, we invited three tutorial lecturers who will give two-part mini-tutorials on key topics for the study of set theory.
At ESSLLI 2011, INFTY is also organizing a foundational course on the basics of set theory (taught by Benedikt Löwe and Grzegorz Plebanek).
