Justin Tatch Moore (born 1974) is a full professor of mathematics at Cornell University. His research concerns the combinatorics of uncountable sets and its applications in mathematics.

He received his Ph.D. in 2000 from the University of Toronto under the supervision of Stevo Todorcevic. In 2006, he won first prize in the Young Scholars competition celebrating the Godel Centenary.

He was one of the organizers of the fall 2012 Thematic Program in Forcing and its Applications at the Fields Institute, and one of the organizers of Descriptive set theory and Polish groups semester at the Bernoulli Center in 2018.

Justin Moore: There may be no minimal non $\sigma$-scattered linear order

Place: Fields Institute (Stewart Library) Date: March 28th, 2016 (14:00-15:00) Speaker: Justin Moore Title: There may be no minimal non $\sigma$-scattered linear order Abstract:  In this talk we demonstrate that it is consistent that there is no linear order which is minimal with respect to being non $\sigma$-scattered.This shows a theorem of Laver, which asserts that the $\sigma$-scattered linear orders are well quasi-ordered is sharp. continue reading…
