Dear all,

The seminar meets on Wednesday March 28th at 11:00 in the Institute of Mathematics CAS, Zitna 25, seminar room, 3rd floor, front building.

Program: Borisa Kuzeljevic — Isomorphic substructures of Fraisse limits

This is joint work with Milos Kurilic. For a relational structure X, its poset of copies is the set of all the substructures of X which are isomorphic to X, enlarged with the empty set, and ordered by inclusion. We will analyze posets of copies of various countable ultrahomogeneous structures. In particular, we will show that for many of these structures the class of order types of maximal chains of copies coincides with the class of order types of compact sets of reals with minimum non-isolated.

Best,

David

of Mathematics CAS, Zitna 25, seminar room, 3rd floor, front building.

Program: Jan Grebik — Applications of topological dynamics to graphons

We show that the question about the existence of a Borel or continuous

lift for graphons has its counterpart in topological dynamics. We

present the optimal result in the general setting and then translate it

back to the original problem.

The seminar meets on Wednesday February 7th at 11:00 in the Institute of Mathematics CAS, Zitna 25, seminar room, 3rd floor, front building.

Program: Time permitting, we will have two talks.

- Leandro Aurichi — Some problems with products of Lindelöf spaces

Some problems about the preservation of the Lindelöf property on

products will be discussed. - Noé de Rancourt — Ramsey theory with and without pigeonhole principle

I will present an abstract infinite-dimensional Ramsey principle that doesn’t need any pigeonhole principle, and then I will compare the cases where the pigeonhole principle holds and the cases where it doesn’t, in a metamathematical way.

The seminar meets on Wednesday January 17th at 11:00 in the Institute of

Mathematics CAS, Zitna 25, seminar room, 3rd floor, front building.

Program: Egbert Thümmel — Ramsey analytic ideals

It is an open problem whether analytic tall ideals can be Ramsey. We

show that this is connected to another problem of Hrušák: If an analytic

tall Ramsey ideal exists, then it is nowhere Katětov above the ideal

conv and has no F-sigma extension.

The seminar meets on Wednesday January 3rd at 11:00 in the Institute of

Mathematics CAS, Zitna 25, seminar room, 3rd floor, front building.

Program: Jan Grebik — Borel selector for Hypergraphons

We recall all relevant definitions and show that there is a Borel way of

choosing a concrete representant of a hypergraphon.

Dear all,

The seminar meets on Wednesday 20th at 11:00 in the Institute of

Mathematics CAS, Zitna 25, seminar room, 3rd floor, front building.

Program:

Jonathan Verner will deliver a short talk on the topic announced below.

There will probably be a enough time for one more talk, volunteer

speakers are welcome.

M. Krom: A linearly ordered topological space which is not normal

Recall that in an introductory course in topology one learns that every

linearly ordered topological space is normal. If the course is good, it

is also pointed out that the construction requires the axiom of choice.

In this talk we will present a nice construction, due to Melven Krom,

which uses a specific instance of the failure of AC to build a linearly

ordered topological space which is not normal. Krom’s construction

answered an, at the time, long standing open question of Birkhoff.

Best,

David

Program:

Jonathan Verner — Coloring metric spaces: A report from the oracle

“I will present a short and elegant argument, due to S. Shelah, showing how one can construct a metric space $X$ of size $2^\omega$ such that for any countable metric space $K$ and any countable coloring of $X$ there is a monochromatic scaled copy of $K$ in $X$”.
