Logic Session at the 27th Nordic Congress of Mathematicians

19 March 2016, Stockholm

The 27th Nordic Congress of Mathematicians (16-20 March 2016
in Stockholm) celebrates the 100th anniversary of Institut
Mittag-Leffler. The founder of the institute Gösta
Mittag-Leffler (1846 – 1927) was an early supporter of
Georg Cantor and his set theory.

The Logic session of the Congress is devoted to set theory
and foundational theories of mathematics, and consists of
four invited talks followed by two shorter talks by
PhD-students (TBA).

Saturday 19 March 2016, 14:00 – 18:30:

* Hugh Woodin, Independence, the Continuum Hypothesis, and the nature of infinity.

* Vadim Kulikov, Descriptive Set Theory of Topological Equivalence Relations.

* Martin Escardo, When the principle of omniscience just holds.

* Peter LeFanu Lumsdaine, “Type theory as a language for homotopy theory”: what does it mean, really?
