Lynn Scow is a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Vassar College.

She works in model theory and structural Ramsey theory. Her research focuses on using structural Ramsey theory results to obtain results on generalized indiscernible sets, and vice versa. This work is motivated by problems in classification theory.

She received her PhD in 2010 from UC Berkeley, under the supervision of Thomas Scanlon.

Lynn Scow: I-indexed Indiscernible Sets and Trees

28/November/2012, 11:o0–12:00 Fields institute,Room 230 Speaker: Lynn Scow (UIC) Title: $\mathcal{I}$-indexed Indiscernible Sets and Trees Abstract: Fix any $L’$-structure $\mathcal{I}$ on an underlying set $I$. An $\mathcal{I}$-indexed indiscernible set is a set of parameters $A = \{a_i : i \in I\}$ where the $a_i$ are same-length finite tuples from some structure $M$ and $A$ satisfies a homogeneity condition: $\textrm{tp}(a_{i_1}, \ldots, a_{i_n};M)=\textrm{tp}(a_{j_1}, \ldots,a_{j_n};M)$ provided that $\textrm{qftp}(i_1,\ldots,i_n;{I})=\textrm{qftp}(j_1,\ldots,j_n;{I})$, where $\textrm{qftp}$ denotes the quantifier-free type. continue reading…
