Hamburg Set Theory Workshop 2020

Descriptive Set Theory, Forcing and the Reals.
20 & 21 June 2020

The Hamburg Set Theory Workshop 2020 is organised by the Arbeitsbereich Mathematische Logik und interdisziplinäre Anwendungen der Logik. It stands in the tradition of the previous workshops HSTW 2014 and HSTW 2016. Everyone is cordially invited to attend. There will be an informal lunch in the student restaurant (Mensa) and a conference dinner.

Location. Geomatikum, Bundesstraße 55, 20146 Hamburg.

Descriptive set theory discusses the relationship between logical complexity and good behaviour of sets, so-called regularity properties (e.g. Lebesgue measurability, perfect set property, etc.). It is well known that these properties are closely connected to forcing (and in some cases, large cardinals). Modern developments in set theory such as forcing, large cardinals and determinacy give powerful techniques to tackle problems in descriptive set theory. In recent years, set theorists have generalised classical results of descriptive set theory to generalised reals.
