Speaker: Thilo Weinert, BGU
Title: The Ramsey Theory of ordinals and its relation to finitary combinatorics
Abstract:
Ramsey Theory is a branch of mathematics which is often times summed up by the slogan “complete disorder is impossible”. An important branch of finitary Ramsey Theory lies in the determination of Ramsey Numbers. Infinitary Ramsey Theory on the other hand is an important branch of set theory. Whereas the Ramsey Theory of the Uncountable often times features independence phenomena, the Ramsey Theory of the Countably Infinite provides many interesting combinatorial challenges.
