Title:     Proper forcing, side conditions and Baumgartner’s problem

Abstract:

I will discuss the method of “proper forcing”, some tricks for building proper forcing posets, and applications old and new. The talk should be accessible to anyone who knows the rudiments of forcing.

Note: If you are planning to attend Itay’ Neeman’s forthcoming Appalachian Set Theory workshop, this talk will fill in some of the background.
