Winter School 2011
Andreas Blass, Péter Komjáth, Lionel Nguyen Van Thé, Petr Simon
Program
This year of the tutorial lectures (each tutorial comprising of several 50 minute lectures) were devoted to advanced topics of Combinatorial and Descriptive Set Theory. They were delivered by leading experts in the respective fields.
Professor Andreas Blass (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor) gave a series of talks introducing recent developements in ultrafilter theory. He had especially emphasized the connections with algebra.
Professor Péter Komjáth (Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest) prepared an introductory course in infinite combinatorics especially concentrating on the results of P. Erdös. He had also mentioned intriguing open questions.
Professor Lionel Nguyen van Thé (Université Paul Cézanne, Marseille) gave an overview of the exciting new connections which were recently discovered between descriptive set theory, topological dynamics and combinatorial set theory. The main topic of his lectures was the relationship of extreme amenability of topological groups and the Ramsey properties of certain Fraïssé classes.
Professor Petr Simon (Charles University, Prague) talked about almost disjoint refinement theorems (a topic one of whose initiators P. Simon is) and the recent results of S. Shelah on completely separable MAD families.
The research presentations were given mainly by younger participants who presented their newest results. The topics included General Topology, Set Theory, Boolean Algebras and Forcing, Descriptive Set Theory, Large Cardinals and the Theory of Ultrafilters.
Each day participants had time to discuss their work with colleagues. The topics of the discussions were diverse and included recent developments in set theory (The exciting new result on the consistency of the Borel and dual Borel conjecture, ultrafilter limits, recent trends in set theoretic topology, automorphisms of ω* etc.)
