Set T heory as was quickly recognized by David Hilbert m ore\n than 100 years ago, plays a fundamental foundational role in the\n intellectual unde rpinning of pure mathematics. Cantor's work on\n cardinality and wellorderings was seen to esta blish several\n basic areas of research whose threads we discern today and\n indeed will b e emphasized in this conference: on the arithmetic \n of cardinal numbers themselves, and on the `descriptive set\n theory' that seeks to ana lyse the logical complexity of sets\n definab le within mathematical language. Cantor's work der ived\n from his study of trigonometric series , and modern set theory\n goes back to classi cal analysis as well as to modern Banach\n sp ace theory, abstract algebra, ergodic theory, and dynamical\n systems to find fruitful applicat ions.\n
