# James Cummings: Cardinal invariants of the continuum

Mathematical logic seminar – October 18 2016
Time:     3:30pm – 4:30 pm

Room:     Wean Hall 8220

Speaker:         James Cummings

Title:     Cardinal invariants of the continuum

Abstract:

The cardinal invariants of the continuum are cardinals which measure properties of the continuum more subtle than its cardinality. We will define some of the important ones and discuss their properties.

Note: This seminar will provide some background for Mayanthe Malliaris’ forthcoming Appalachian Set Theory workshop on November 5, see workshop web page at http://www.math.cmu.edu/users/jcumming/Appalachian/malliaris_cmu_2016.html for details.
