DESCRIPTION:In this (tutorial) talk we present som
e of the usual (very) large cardinals, which are t
hose described by the existence of elementary embe
ddings between transitive class models of ZFC set
theory. We look at some standard results and techn
iques in the context of such elementary embeddings
. Subsequently, we introduce the hierarchies of C^
(n)-cardinals, which were defined and studied by B
agaria, giving an overview of their properties and
connections with the usual large cardinal hierarc
hy. Finally, we mention some recent applications o
f C^(n)-cardinals outside of set theory. (The talk
is meant to be accessible to master level student
s.) For abstracts and more information, see http:

ntroduce the hierarchies of C^(n)-cardinals, which
were defined and studied by Bagaria, giving an ov
