Computable metric structure theory
I will begin by reviewing the evolution of computable structure theory beginning with its origins in the work of van der Waerden on constructive algebra. I will then discuss recent work on extending the computable structures program to metric structures by means of the framework of computable analysis. I will focus on Banach spaces, and in particular recent results on computable categoricity and degrees of categoricity of

spaces. The solutions of some of the resulting problems involve am interesting blend of methods from functional analysis and classical computability theory.

Chris Lambie-Hanson
Reflections on graph coloring
In 1951, de Bruijn and Erdős published a compactness theorem for graphs with finite chromatic number, proving that, if is a graph, is a natural number, and all finite subgraphs of have chromatic number at most , then has chromatic number at most . Since then, infinitary generalizations of this theorem, for the chromatic number as well as the coloring number of graphs, have attracted much attention. In this talk, we will briefly review some of the historical highlights in this area and then present some new work. These results show that the coloring number can exhibit only a limited amount of incompactness, while large amounts of incompactness for the chromatic number are implied by relatively weak hypotheses. This indicates that the coloring number and chromatic number behave quite differently with respect tocompactness and illustrates the difficulty involved in obtaining infinitary analogues of the de Bruijn-Erdős result at infinite, accessible cardinals. This is joint work with Assaf Rinot.

1:45-2:30
Matthew Harrison-Trainor
Some Computable Structure Theory of Finitely Generated Structures
Every countable structure has a sentence of infinitary logic, called a Scott sentence, which describes it up to isomorphism among countable structures. We can characterize the complexity of a structure by the complexity of the simplest description of that structure. A finitely generated structure always has a

description. We show that there is a finitely generated group which has no simpler description. The proof of this leads us to talk about notions of universality for finitely generated structures. Finitely generated groups are universal, but finitely generated fields are not. By this, we mean that for every finitely generated structure, there is a finitely generated group which has the same computability-theoretic properties; but the same is not true for finitely generated fields. We apply the results of this investigation to pseudo Scott sentences.

2:45-3:30
Stamatis Dimopoulos
Woodin-for-strong-compactness cardinals, a new identity crisis
Woodin and Vopěnka cardinals are established notions in the large cardinal hierarchy and despite being defined in different context, they proved to be very similar. In fact, Vopěnka cardinals are obtained by replacing a strongness clause in the definition of Woodinness by a supercompactness clause. Since strong compactness is an intermediate large cardinal notion between strongness and supercompactness, it is natural to consider a “Woodinised” version of it. In this talk, we give the definition of this new type of large cardinal, called Woodin for strong compactness, and will present some results about them. The highlight is that the analogue of Magidor’s “identity crisis” theorem for the first strongly compact holds for these cardinals too: the first Woodin for strong compactness cardinal can consistently be the first Woodin or the first Vopěnka cardinal.

On the Infinite, Paris, October 18 – 21, 2017

On the Infinite

An Interdisciplinary Symposium

October 18 – October 21, 2017

Infinity: the break in the horizon, the “what cannot be counted”, boundless, bottomless, eternal, illimitable and absolute. The infinite encloses physical space; the infinite holds time within itself.

Already in the classical period, philosophers were undone by Zeno’s paradox, that an arrow shot from its bow will never reach its target because it must pass through every point between bow and target, and there are infinitely many such points. For cosmologists, the urgent question is: Is the universe finite or infinite? Will it last forever? And theologians saw in it an attribute of God, and were even prohibited to talk about it.

For the mathematician the infinite is the oil in the machine. For the mathematician who is a set theorist the infinite is a totality—completed, though in Aristotle’s sense, out of view; while at the same time the infinite is essentially open: open “above”, so numberless; but also open inwardly, in the way it copies itself internally over and over again, prints an image of itself into every one of its proper parts, and reprints, and reprints, and reprints, toward an endlessly fractured and ramified whole.

Critical conceptions of the infinite coming from outside of mathematics may coalesce around the concept of seriality. In The Infinite Line the art historian Briony Fer writes of the various serial strategies available to the artist; how “repetition, splintered into multiple registers, [is] no longer pitched against the aura of a single, unique artwork, so much as against its other selves.”

In this four-day interdisciplinary symposium we juxtapose lectures by set theorists and other mathematicians with those by art historians, architects, artists and philosophers, in an attempt to create a dialogue across cultures.

Some of the mathematical talks will be aimed at a general audience.

The symposium is accompanied by an exhibition of the work of the sculptor Fred Sandback.

Tex file: http://ims.nus.edu.sg/files/IMSAbstractTemplate.tex
PDF example: http://ims.nus.edu.sg/files/IMSAbstractTemplate.pdf

Submission deadline: September 1, 2017


This workshop is the seventh in the Computability Theory and Foundations of Mathematics (CTFM) series. CTFM aims to provide a forum for computability theory and logical foundations of mathematics. The topics include, but are not limited to, Computability / Recursion Theory, Reverse Mathematics, Nonstandard Analysis, Proof Theory, Set Theory, Philosophy of Mathematics, Constructive Mathematics, Algorithmic Randomness and Computational Complexity.

CTFM began as a “Workshop on Proof Theory and Computability Theory” and held its first meeting in Japan. Previous venues were Matsushima (2008, 2009), Inawashiro (2010), Sendai (2011), Tokyo (2012). The series assumed the name “Computability and Foundations of Mathematics” at the 2013 meeting which was hosted in Tokyo. CTFM 2017 will be the first time a meeting in the series is held outside Japan.

The previous meetings attracted not only researchers in Japan but also many from around the world. In particular, since 2013, logicians from Singapore have had frequent scientific exchanges with their Japanese counterpart through the platform of the CTFM meetings.

The first day and the last day of the 2017 workshop will focus on classical recursion theory, and computable structures as well as reverse mathematics. The activities are held jointly with the program Aspect of Computation. The other two days will focus on topics in set theory and the foundations of mathematics.
