Graduate Pizza Seminar
Location: Hill Grad Student Lounge
Date & time: Friday, 29 January 2016 at 1:40PM - 1:41PM
Martin Koberl , Rutgers University: Depending on the audience's interest and background I will talk about various topics hopefully all illuminating Cantor's Continuum Hypothesis and its role in set theory now and then. We might see why cardinal addition and multiplication are boring while exponentiation is not. I will also mention the phenomenon of logical independence and the pioneering role played by CH. Time permitting I will relieve you from any worries about the problems caused by CH's independence for your mathematical work.
