SUMMARY:Hamburg Set Theory Workshop 2020 (HSTW 202
0): Descriptive Set Theory, Forcing and the Reals,
Virtual
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20200620

LOCATION:Virtual
DESCRIPTION:Descriptive set theory discusses the r
elationship between logical complexity and good be
haviour 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 theor
y such as forcing, large cardinals and determinacy
give powerful techniques to tackle problems in de
scriptive set theory. In recent years, set theoris
ts have generalised classical results of descripti
ve set theory to generalised reals. Speakers: 1.
Vera Fischer (Vienna) 2. Yurii Khomskii (Hamburg &
Amsterdam) 3. Dominique Lecomte (Paris) 4. Heike
Mildenberger (Freiburg) 5. Dorottya Sziraki (Budap
est) 6. Wolfgang Wohofsky (Vienna) 7. Jindrich Zap
letal (Gainesville FL) 8. Zoltan Vydnyanszky (Vien
na) Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the HSTW 2020 w
ill be held online as a Zoom webinar with several
zoom meetings as substitute for social events, lik
e cofeebreaks/lunch. Further information about the
