# RIMS Set Theory Workshop 2014

Infinitary Combinatorics in Set Theory and Its Applications

November 10 – 13, 2014

Kyoto, Japan

### Overview

Infinitary Combinatoricsis a classical and main topic of axiomatic set theory. To investigate infinitary combinatorics, set theory have used and developed not only purely combinatorial arguments but also various methoeds such as forcing, inner model theory, definability and computabity of the structure, and so on. And recently, applications of combinatorics in set theory to other fields of matehmatics are going on increasing. In this RIMS workshop, we shall reexamine recent developments in set theory in light of combinatorics.As is usually the case in this series of annual RIMS workshops in set theory, besides this main theme of the meeting, there will be also talks on topics in set theory which might not be directly connected to this main theme, as well as talks on some application of set theory in other fields of mathematics.The meeting will take place in the week before Workshop on the Occasion of Sakae Fuchino’s 60th Birthday (Nov. 17 – Nov. 19, 2014; Kobe University, Japan; organizers: Joerg Brendle, Hiroshi Sakai, Toshimichi Usuba), and we expect that many participants from abroad will stay for both meetings.

## Guest Speakers

- Benedikt Löwe
- Andrew Brooke-Taylor
We expect many talks, in particular by junior participants, both from Japan and abroad.

Prospective participants should contact the organizer, Toshimichi Usuba, as early as possible.
