SCHOOL IN SET THEORY
CARDINALS, INNER MODELS AND FINE STRUCTURE
by NSF Grant DMS-1044150
& Dates: University of California, Irvine June
25 -- July 6, 2012

If you are a graduate student in set theory and are interested in the
topic of the summer school, please feel free to contact me concerning
The school will fully support US citizens and permanent residents. (Travel
Reimbursement Form, W9).
The there will be two groups of participants at different level of
experience. The material covered in the summer school is chosen so that
most of it will be new for both groups, although there will be of
course more work load for the less experienced group. The focus will be
on intermediate core models and their applications in cardinal
arithmetic, descriptive set theory and combinatorics. Here is some
background reading with instructions.
This will be a very intensive two-week session focused on basic
inner model theory. The precise topics will be specified once we have
some core list of participants, in order to fit the schedule to their
background and level to the best possible extent. It is assumed the
participants have basic knowledge of set theory. Knowledge of forcing
is preferable, but not absolutely necessary. The session will consist
of presentations given by the organizer, participants and postdoctoral
fellows who will help to run the school. On top of the presentations
there will be discussion sessions where the participants will actively
work on problems.
AND DEPARTURE: (a) The
program starts on Monday June 25. The
participants are supposed to arrive at UC Irvine on Sunday June 24
during the day, preferably before 8:00pm. In the case there are no
suitable connections I will help you with later arrivals.
(b) For most of
the participants the housing will be arranged. I will be working on
accommodation with those participants who do not fall into the general
(c) The departure day is July
7, with check-out before 4pm.
(d) If you are flying to the
summer school, you must use a US carrier if you want a reimbursement
(if you are eligible). The closest airport to fly to is Orange County
Airport, also called John Wayne Airport, with airport code SNA.
