Title: Long reals
Date: Wednesday 19 November 2014
Time: 16:00-17:00

Ever since Dedekind and Cantor, there is a well-known procedure which, starting with the set of natural numbers, produces in a canonical fashion the complete ordered field of the reals. In this talk, we study what happens when one replaces $\omega$ by any infinite cardinal $\kappa$ in the above construction(s). This is joint work in progress with David Aspero.
