The meeting will take place at the Field Institute, 222 College Street, Toronto.
About
In the years 19631964, Paul Cohen developed the method of forcing in order to settle Cantor’s Continuum Problem. Since then, the method of forcing has been adapted into a broadly applicable technique for showing that a given statement is
consistent with the axioms of mathematics.
OVERVIEW
The fall 2012 thematic program at the Fields Institute on Forcing and its Applications witnessed breakthroughs in both the internal study of set theory as well as its applications to fields such as analysis and the general theory of topological groups. This workshop will bring together experts studying different aspects of set theory related to the program — large cardinals, singular cardinals, infinite combinatorics, and forcing axioms — as well as closely related fields of mathematics such as functional analysis and topology.
