14-27 June 2009, ESI Workshop on Large Cardinals and Descriptive Set Theory, Vienna, Austria

Date: 14-27 June 2009
Location: Vienna, Austria

Set theory has recently experienced major new developments concerning the construction of models for large cardinals, combinatorial set theory, descriptive set theory, generalisations of Martin's axiom, strong absoluteness and the theory of forcing.

Particularly encouraging is the fact that many unusually talented young people have recently entered the subject, who have established remarkable results concerning the Proper Forcing Axiom and its variants, the Singular Cardinal Hypothesis, subtle properties of stationary sets, and important aspects of applied set theory, including topological dynamics, Borel equivalence relations and metric geometry.

Our two-week workshop, which will be open to the set theory community at large, will focus around two principal themes: Large Cardinals and Descriptive Set Theory. The workshop is organized by the Erwin Schrödinger Institute (ESI) and financed by the ESI and Austrian Science Fund (FWF).
