Seminar organizer’s toolbox
Matteo Viale works in Torino University. His field of specialization is set theory.
His current researches focus on forcing axioms, currently one of the main topics of this field. These axioms are strong combinatorial principles which settle almost all classical undecidable problems of set theory. They also have some unexpected applications in other fields of mathematics.
A question that drives his current interests is to try to understand why this is the case.
Previously he centered his researches on the singular cardinal combinatorics in models of strong forcing axioms.
He completed his doctoral studies in Paris in 2006 under the direction of Prof. Velickovic. Subsequently he was offered a three years postdoc position in Vienna University, which he held in 2007 and 2008.
Since 2008 he works as a tenure track researcher in mathematical logic in Torino university.

Matteo Viale: Useful axioms
KGRC Research Seminar – 2017‑04‑26 at 4pm
Speaker: Matteo Viale (Università di Torino, Italy)
Abstract: ￼I overview several aspects of forcing axioms which (in my eyes) give solid mathematical arguments explaining why these axioms are so useful in establishing new (consistency) results and/or theorems. continue reading…

Matteo Viale: Well Behaving Category Forcings
Friday Set Theory Seminar (HUJI)
We shall meet next Friday (July 10th) in the Hebrew University math department building in Room 110, at 10 am.
Speaker: Matteo Viale (UNITO)
Title: Well Behaving Category Forcings
Abstract: We isolate and study certain nice properties for classes of forcings : that of being $\kappa$iterable (property A), that of being $\Pi^1_1$persistent at $\kappa$ (property B), and that of having the
strong freezeability property (property C).. continue reading…
