22 August 2018, Masterclass on Generalised Baire Spaces, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Date: Wednesday 22 August 2018
Location: Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Deadline: Friday 15 June 2018

In classical descriptive set theory, Baire space is the most central topological space for the study of the real numbers, consisting of functions from omega to omega. Moving from omega to an uncountable cardinal kappa, one can consider *generalised Baire spaces*, the sets of functions from kappa to kappa. The study of these spaces has become a very important subject in set theory in the past decade.

In combination with the KNAW Academy Colloquium "Generalised Baire Spaces", the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences is offering a one day Master Class on the topic of Generalised Baire Spaces, with four 2-hour courses taught by Andreas Blass, Jouko Vaananen, Andrew Brooke-Taylor, and Philipp Schlicht. This Master Class, intended for graduate students, will teach the basic material needed to understand the research results discussed during the colloquium on the two following days.
