James Cummings: Definable subsets of singular cardinals
Mathematical logic seminar – Apr 11 2017
Time: 3:30pm – 4:30 pm
Room: Wean Hall 8220
Speaker: James Cummings
Department of Mathematical Sciences
CMU
Title: Definable subsets of singular cardinals
Abstract:
Shelah proved the surprising result that if μ is a singular strong limit cardinal of uncountable cofinality, then there is a subset X of μ such that all subsets of μ are ordinaldefinable from X. continue reading…
