Midrasha Mathematicae: "Cardinal Arithmetic at Work" (March 2004, Jerusalem)

Midrasha Mathematicae
"Cardinal Arithmetic at Work"
March 23 - 29, 2004
IAS, Jerusalem (Israel)


The purpose of the workshop is to provide up-to-date information about
important and exciting developments in cardinal arithmetic that took place
in the last two decades: pcf theory, $\Omega$-logic, inner model theory
and forcing of the continuum. Then the workshop aims to re-examine the
question of how modern knowldege of infinite cardinals can be used in
mathematics. Such knowledge allows one to re-adjust old conceptions as to
what can be done with cardinal arithmetic in ZFC, and provides the means
for selecting the most suitable set-theoretic techniques for attacking
problems that are not decided in ZFC.The workshop is intended for set
theorists as well as for researchers in related areas - like set theoretic
topology and model theory.

APPLICATIONS: The School is intended for advanced graduate and
post-doctoral students. Registration fees: $275. Hotel accommodation:
