Logic Seminar - Shimon Garti

11:00am to 1:00pm

Location:

On the cofinality of some classical cardinal characteristics.


We will try to prove two results about the possible cofinality of cardinal characteristics.
The first result is about the ultrafilter number, and this is a part of a joint work with Saharon Shelah.
The second is about Galvin's number, and this is a joint work with Yair Hayut, Haim Horowitz and Menachem Magidor.

Uniform definability of types over finite sets

Uniform definability of types over finite sets (UDTFS) is a property of formulas which implies NIP and characterizes NIP in the level of theories (by Chernikov and Simon).

In this talk we will prove that if T is any theory with definable Skolem functions, then every dependent formula phi has UDTFS. This result can be seen as a translation of a result of Shay Moran and Amir Yehudayof in machine learning theory to the logical framework.

Abstract. This is a joint work with Linhui Shen.
A decorated surface is an oriented surface with punctures and a finite collection of special points on the boundary, considered modulo isotopy.
Let G be a split adjoint group. We introduce a moduli space Loc(G,S) of G-local systems on a decorated surface S, which reduces to the character variety when S has no boundary, and quantize it.

NT & AG Lunch: Ehud DeShalit "An overview of class field theory"

1:00pm to 2:00pm

Location: 

Faculty lounge, Math building
Class field theory classifies abelian extensions of local and global fields
in terms of groups constructed from the base. We shall survey the main results of class
field theory for number fields and function fields alike. The goal of these introductory lectures
is to prepare the ground for the study of explicit class field theory in the function field case,
via Drinfeld modules.
I will talk for the first 2 or 3 times.

NT & AG - Antoine Ducros (Sorbonne Université), "Non-standard analysis and non-archimedean geometry"

2:30pm to 3:30pm

Location: 

Room 70A, Ross Building, Jerusalem, Israel
There is a general slogan according to which the limit behaviour of a one-parameter family of complex algebraic varieties when the parameter t tends to zero should be (partially) encoded in the associated t-adic analytic space in the sense of Berkovich; this slogan has given rise to deep and fascinating conjecturs by Konsevich and Soibelman, as well as positive results by various authors (Berkovich, Nicaise, Boucksom, Jonsson...).

Set Theory Seminar - Gabriel Fernandes (BIU): Local core models with more Woodin cardinals

2:00pm to 3:30pm

Location: 

Ross 63
Abstract: We combine a technique of Steel with one due to Jensen and Steel to
obtain a core model below singular cardinals kappa which are
sufficiently closed under the beth function, assuming that there is no
premouse of height kappa with unboundedly many Woodin cardinals.
The motivation for isolating such core model is computing a lower bound for the strength of
the theory: T = ''ZFC + there is a singular cardinal kappa such that the set of ordinals below kappa where GCH holds is stationary and co-stationary''.

T&G: John Pardon (Princeton), Structural results in wrapped Floer theory

1:00pm to 2:30pm

Location: 

Room 110, Manchester Building, Jerusalem, Israel
I will discuss results relating different partially wrapped Fukaya categories. These include a K\"unneth formula, a `stop removal' result relating partially wrapped Fukaya categories relative to different stops, and a gluing formula for wrapped Fukaya categories. The techniques also lead to generation results for Weinstein manifolds and for Lefschetz fibrations. The methods are mainly geometric, and the key underlying Floer theoretic fact is an exact triangle in the Fukaya category associated to Lagrangian surgery along a short Reeb chord at infinity.
