9 May 2014, Descriptive Set Theory, Lausanne, Switzerland

Date: 9 May 2014
Location: Lausanne, Switzerland

The Swiss Graduate Society of Logic and Philosophy of Science (SGSLPS) organises a one-day conference on Descriptive Set Theory on May 9 in Lausanne (Switzerland).

Descriptive Set Theory is the study of the sets of reals that can be explicitly defined or constructed, and so can be expected to have certain properties, such as Lebesgue Measurability, not enjoyed by arbitrary sets. It is a central part of contemporary Set Theory and therefore dealing with major logical concepts, such as definability and undecidability. Prof. Andretta (Universita di Torino) will provide the audience with a gentle introduction to Descriptive Set Theory and its interactions with other parts of mathematics. Prof. Duparc (Université de Lausanne) will then focus on infinite games, a major technique in this field.
