29 May 2017, SGSLPS 2017 Spring meeting on "Borel Reducibility of Equivalence Relations", Lausanne, Switzerland

Date: Monday 29 May 2017
Location: Lausanne, Switzerland

Classification has always been a central theme in mathematics. The study of Borel Reducibility of Equivalence Relations deals with the classification of points of standard Borel spaces up to equivalence relations by explicit, or Borel, mappings between such spaces.

This idea gives rise to a notion of complexity of equivalence relations, and tools from Descriptive Set Theory are used to compare such relations and measure their complexities.

The SGSLPS 2017 Spring meeting on "Borel Reducibility of Equivalence Relations" will feature four hour-long talks by leading experts in the field. The first talk will be introductory and will aim at a general audience.
