Time and place: Thursdays 10.0011.45 am, room 105, Sniadeckich 8
The scope of the seminar:
Settheoretic combinatorial and topological methods in diverse fields of mathematics, with a special emphasis on abstract analysis like
Banach spaces, Banach algebras, C*algebras, Here we include both the developing of such methods as
forcing, descriptive set theory, Ramsey theory as well as their concrete applications in the fields mentioned above.
Working group style: We will make efforts so that this seminar has
more a working character rather than the presentation style. This means that we encourage long digressions,
discussions, background preparations and participation of everyone.
We would like to immerse ourselves into the details of the mathematical arguments studied.
Also the talks are usualy devoted to research in progress or fascinating results leading to some project not yet resolved.
While ready final results could be presented at other seminars at IM PAN or UW.
Participants this semester so far:
 Tristan Bice (IM PAN/WCNM)
 Tomasz Kochanek (IM PAN/UW)
 Piotr Koszmider (IM PAN)
 Michał Godziszewski (Ph. D. student IMPAN)
