Speaker: Monroe Eskew Time: Mon, 01/27/2014 – 4:00pm – 5:30pm Location: RH 440R Title: Clubs, diamonds, and saturated ideals Abstract: We will present two different ways to generically add a club subset of a successor cardinal, under some GCH. continue reading…

Monroe Eskew: Separating strong saturation properties of ideals on small cardinals IV

Speaker: Monroe Eskew Institution: UCI Time: Mon, 10/21/2013 – 4:00pm – 5:30pm Location: RH440R We will finish the proof that under GCH, dense ideals cannot exist at successors of singular cardinals. continue reading…

Monroe Eskew: Separating strong saturation properties of ideals on small cardinals III

Speaker: Monroe Eskew Institution: UCI Time: Mon, 10/14/2013 – 4:00pm – 5:30pm Location: RH 440R This is a continuation of the previous two talks, where we used large cardinals to get a normal, lambda-dense ideal on [lambda]^omega_1 that coincide at omega_1. continue reading…

Speaker: Monroe Eskew Institution: UCI Time: Mon, 10/07/2013 – 4:00pm – 5:30pm Host: Martin Zeman Location: RH 440R The topic of this talk is inspired by measure-theoretic questions raised by Ulam: What is the smallest number of countably additive, two valued measures on R such that every subset is measurable in one of them? continue reading…

Monroe Eskew: Foreman’s Duality Theorem and Applications I

Speaker: Monroe Eskew Institution: UCI Time: Mon, 05/06/2013 – 4:00pm – 5:30pm Location: RH 440R We present a theorem of Foreman that allows an exact characterization of what happens to the structure of precipitous ideals after suitable forcing. continue reading…

Monday, March 12, 2012, at 4pm RH 440R Speaker: Monroe Eskew (UCI) Title: The structure of ideals II Abstract: We present a proof of a theorem of Gitik and Shelah that places limits on the structure of quotient algebras by sigma-additive ideals. continue reading…
