Title: Hindman’s theorem and uncountable Abelian groups

Abstract. In the early 1970’s, Hindman proved a beautiful theorem in additive Ramsey theory asserting that for any partition of the set of natural numbers into finitely many cells, there exists some infinite set such that all of its finite sums belong to a single cell.

In this talk, we shall study generalizations of this statement. Among other things, we shall present a negative partition relation for the real line which simultaneously generalizes a recent theorem of Hindman, Leader and Strauss, and a classic theorem of Galvin and Shelah.

This is joint work with D.J. Fernandez Breton from the University of Michigan
