As part of the Oberseminar Mengenlehre, Vladimir Kanovei will give an introduction to the Descriptive Set Theory of Equivalence Relations. This area of Descriptive Set Theory has mainly been developed by Kechris and Hjorth and is a very important area of research connecting Descriptive Set Theory to other (non-logical) fields of mathematics.
The course will consist of five lectures, given on the following dates:
|October 26th, 2000||Part I||SR B, 4 pm|
|November 2nd, 2000||Part II||SR B, 4 pm|
|November 16th, 2000||Part III||SR B, 4 pm|
|November 29th, 2000||Part IV||SR C, 10 am|
|December 1st, 2000||Part V||SR A, 10 am|
In the Oberseminar on Thursday, Nov 30 (4 pm), Marc van Eijmeren will talk about a paper of Marcia Groszek and Ted Slaman that seems to be connected with Vladimir's talks.
The series is following a script of Vladimir Kanovei which can be obtained as PostScript file from this page:
