Title: Metastability and model theory
Abstract: The concept of metastability was introduced by Tao; it played crucial role in his ergodic convergence theorem (2008) and in Walsh’s generalization (Ann. of Math., 2012). I will discuss the fact that metastability is intimately connected with notions from model theory of metric structures. This is joint work with Xavier Caicedo and Eduardo Duenez.
