starting the week of Sept. 17
Course on Forcing
by Alan Dow (UNC Charolette)
Tuesdays and Thursdays 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Stewart Library, Fields Institute
This will be a basic Forcing course directed towards graduate students and non-experts which will still reach a reasonable level of sophistication in designing forcing notions. An emphasis will be placed on examples and on the methodology of designing the forcings themselves rather than the formal and rigorous development of the logical underpinnings of forcing.
