Logic Seminar - Nick Ramsey - "Keisler measures in simple theories"

Keisler measures were introduced in the late 80's by Keisler but they became central objects in model theory only recently with the development of NIP theories. This led naturally to the question of whether there might be a parallel theory of measures in other tame classes, especially in the simple theories where pseudofinite counting measures supply natural and interesting examples. We will describe some first steps toward establishing such a theory, based on Keisler randomizations and the theory of independence for NSOP1 theories in continuous logic. This is joint work with Ita ï Ben Yaacov and Artem Chernikov.
