ILLC Events this week
(New) 17 December 2019, Set Theory Seminar, Hrafn OddssonSpeaker: Hrafn OddssonTitle: A Model for Paradefinite Set TheoryLocation: ILLC Seminar Room F1.15, Science Park 107, Amsterdam
Abstract: A paradefinite logic is a logic that is both paraconsistent and paracomplete. In this talk we introduce a framework for models of paradefinite set theories based of Thierry Libert's work in paraconsistent set theory. We then present a model of paradefinite set theory which can be seen as the result of enriching the classical von Neumann universe of sets with various non-classical sets. We will also discuss the axiomatization of the theory of this model.

The 22nd Amsterdam Colloquium will be held on 18-20 December, 2019 to bring together linguists, philosophers, logicians, cognitive scientists and computer scientists who share an interest in the formal study of the semantics and pragmatics of natural and formal languages.
The Amsterdam Colloquium will feature two workshops: one on Semantic Universals, featuring Terry Regier (Berkeley) and Susan Rothstein (Bar-Ilan); and one on Super Linguistics, featuring Cornelia Ebert (Berlin) and Gabe Greenberg (UCLA).
