23.5.2023, Tuesday 10.15, room 403
Kacper Kucharski (MIM UW)
Title: Gaps in P(ω)/fin and their applications. Continuation.
Abstract: " In this series of two talks, we will discuss the
(non)existence of certain types of gaps in the Boolean algebra P(ω)/fin.
Specifically, we will demonstrate that there are no (κ, λ)  gaps for κ,
λ ≤ ω, and then construct a Hausdorff gap, i.e., an (ω_{1}, ω_{1})  gap.
Additionally, we will present a characterisation of the bounding number
in terms of a Rothberger gap. Finally as an application, we will
use the Hausdorff gap to demonstrate the existence of a universal
measure zero set. All results mentioned above will be proven within ZFC.
In the end, we will also briefly discuss the notion of indestructible
gaps and describe the situation under PFA."

Title: An introduction to the combinatorics of 2cardinals. Conclusion.
Abstract: "This is the last of the series of talks devoted to present applications of 2cardinals (versions of Velleman's neat simplified morasses) to combinatorics. We will use 2cardinals to
prove the existence of a version of the Hausdorff gap at level
κ (κ is a regular cardinal) and use the coloring defined from 2cardinals (a version of Todorcevic's ρ function) to prove the existence of a κ^{+}Aronszajn tree".

Title: An introduction to the combinatorics of 2cardinals. Continuation.
Abstract: "In this talk we will continue our study of 2cardinals (versions of Velleman's simplified morasses).
We will use them to define a certain
κvalued coloring on pairs of κ^{+} (κ is a cardinal) and a family of functions from κ^{+} to {0,1,2} with interesting combinatorial properties, which we will use to construct a κKurepa tree
and a version of the Hausdorff gap at the level of κ".

Kamil Ryduchowski (MIM UW/IM PAN)
Title: An introduction to the combinatorics of 2cardinals.
Abstract: "This is the first of two talks devoted to presenting the notion
of a 2cardinal (a version of Velleman's simplified morass) and its applications in infinitary combinatorics. Intuitively speaking, a 2cardinal is a special family of subsets of κ^{+} (κ is a cardinal), each
of them of cardinality smaller than κ, which can be used to transfinite inductive constructions of objects of size
κ^{+} without dealing with the step of cofinality κ in the process.
In this talk we will present the definition of 2cardinals, prove their basic properties
and use them to construct a κKurepa tree and a version of the Hausdorff gap at the level of κ"
4.4.2023, Tuesday 10.15, room 403
Zdeněk Silber (IM PAN)
Title: On Corson's property (C) and other sequential properties.
Abstract: "In this talk we introduce convex variants of topological properties
like countable tightness, sequentiality, being FréchetUrysohn or sequential compactness,
when applied to the dual ball of a Banach space equiped with the weak* topology.
We will show some implications of those properties with a particular focus on
the equivalence (under PFA) of countable tightness and its convex variant, property (C)."
28.03.2023, Tuesday 10.15, room 403
Piotr Koszmider (IMPAN)
Title: Steppingup with an Aronszajn tree and adding a Cohen real. Continuation.
Abstract: "We will discuss classical techniques involving almost coherent families of injections
from countable ordinals into ω and adding a Cohen real. Applications will include:
adding one Cohen real to any model produces a coloring with the Galvin property, Suslin tree
and an entangled set of reals etc."
21.03.2023, Tuesday 10.15, room 403
Krzysztof Zakrzewski (MIMUW)
Title: An elementary proof of the EberleinSmulian theorem. Continuation.
Abstract: "We will give a brief proof of the EberleinSmulian theorem
which says that for a subset of a Banach space endowed with the weak topology
three conditions are equivalent, namely: conditional compactness,
conditional sequential compactness and conditional countable
compactness. The proof will use standard results from theory of Banach
spaces, namely Alaoglu's theorem and the HahnBanach theorem.
The talk is based on the article "An Elementary Proof of
EberleinSmulian Theorem" by Robert Whitley (Math. Ann. 1967)"

Title: Steppingup with an Aronszajn tree and adding a Cohen real.
Abstract: "We will discuss classical techniques involving almost coherent families of injections
from countable ordinals into ω and involving adding a Cohen real. Applications will include:
The existence of a strong Luzin set implies the existence of a coloring of pairs of ω_{1}
with very strong multidimensional antiramsey properties; adding one Cohen real to any model produces a Suslin tree
and produces an entangled set of reals etc."
