Alan Dow Conference, December 6–9, 2014

60 years of Dow
celebrating the mathematics
of Alan Dow

December 6–9, 2014

Alan Dow has made deep contributions to set-theoretic topology and has been one of few researchers to pioneer new techniques in set theory which were directly motivated by fundamental topological problems. This conference aims to bring together the different areas of research relating to Professor Dow’s work on compactness, convergence, and their relation to set theory and forcing.

This is a special meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Mathematical Logic Seminar (MAMLS). Support for the meeting is provided by the National Science Foundation.
