(Updated) 20 - 21 June 2020, Hamburg Set Theory Workshop 2020 (HSTW 2020): Descriptive Set Theory, Forcing and the Reals, Virtual

Date: 20 - 21 June 2020
Location: Virtual
Deadline: Thursday 30 April 2020

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.
