Time and place: Thursdays 1113 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. To achive this,
the duration of the seminar will not be rigidly fixed and may reach even 3 hours with the breaks.
We would like to immerse ourselves into the details of the mathematical arguments studied.
