SUMMARY:ESI Workshop on Large Cardinals and Descri
ptive Set Theory, Vienna, Austria
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20090614
DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20090627
LOCATION:Vienna, Austria
DESCRIPTION:Set theory has recently experienced ma
jor new developments concerning the construction o
f models for large cardinals, combinatorial set th
eory, descriptive set theory, generalisations of M
artin's axiom, strong absoluteness and the theory
of forcing. Particularly encouraging is the fact
that many unusually talented young people have re
cently entered the subject, who have established r
emarkable results concerning the Proper Forcing Ax
iom and its variants, the Singular Cardinal Hypoth
esis, subtle properties of stationary sets, and im
portant aspects of applied set theory, including t
opological dynamics, Borel equivalence relations a
nd metric geometry. Our two-week workshop, which
will be open to the set theory community at large
, will focus around two principal themes: Large Ca
rdinals and Descriptive Set Theory. The workshop i
s organized by the Erwin SchrÃ¶dinger Institute (ES
I) and financed by the ESI and Austrian Science Fu
nd (FWF). For more information, see http://www.l
