Title: Ramsey’s Theorem on Trees.


Ramsey’s theorem on trees concerns the existence of a
monochromatic tree isomorphic to the full binary tree, for a given finite
colouring of the latter. The existence of a monochromatic perfect tree is
immediate in the system of Peano arithmetic. The interesting question is
to identify the weakest system that is sufficient for it. We will give a
progress report of our study.

This is joint work with Li Wei and Wang Wei.
