Recent and upcoming talks by Chris Lambie-Hanson

Chris Lambie-Hanson: Bounded Stationary Reflection

Students Set Theory Seminar (HUJI) We shall meet Wednesday (December 10) in the Hebrew University (in Ross 70), 14:45-16:00. Speaker: Chris Lambie-Hanson Title: Bounded Stationary Reflection Abstract: Eisworth, motivated in part by his work on square-bracket partition relations, asked whether it must be the case that if mu is a singular cardinal and every stationary subset of mu^+ reflects, then every stationary subset of mu^+ reflects at an ordinal of arbitrarily high cofinality below mu. continue reading…

Chris Lambie-Hanson: Jónsson cardinals, partition relations, and stationary reflection, Part III

Speaker:  Chris Lambie-Hanson Title: Jónsson cardinals, partition relations, and stationary reflection, Part III Abstract: I will present a proof that, relative to large cardinal assumptions, it is consistent that there is a singular cardinal mu such that every stationary subset of mu^+ reflects but that there is a stationary subset of mu^+ that does not reflect at ordinals of arbitrarily high cofinality. continue reading…
