Université de Lausanne (Unil), Amphipôle, Room 340

29 May 2017, 10:30 – 17:00

The SGSLPS 2017 Spring meeting on “Borel Reducibility of Equivalence Relations” will feature four hour-long talks by leading experts in the field. The first talk will be introductory and will aim at a general audience.


Speakers:

  • Raphaël Carroy (Kurt Gödel Research Centre, Vienna)
  • Julien Melleray (Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Lyon)
  • Luca Motto Ros (Università di Torino, Turin
About the subject:
Classification has always been a central theme in mathematics. The study of Borel Reducibility of Equivalence Relations deals with the classification of points of standard Borel spaces up to equivalence relations by explicit, or Borel, mappings between such spaces.

This idea gives rise to a notion of complexity of equivalence relations, and tools from Descriptive Set Theory are used to compare such relations and measure their complexities.


Organisers:
The SGSLPS 2017 Spring meeting is organised by the Swiss Graduate Society for Logic and Philosophy of Science, SGSLPS, with funding by the Swiss Academy of Sciences.
The Swiss Graduate Society for Logic and Philosophy of Science (SGSLPS) is an association of advanced undergraduate and graduate students with a distinctive interest in the large domains of logic and philosophy of science
