Fall 2017

Simon Thomas

Subtitle: Countable Borel Equivalence Relations

Course Description:

This course will be an introduction to countable Borel equivalence relations, a very active area of classical descriptive set theory which interacts nontrivially with such diverse areas of mathematics as model theory, computability theory, group theory and ergodic theory. The topics to be covered will include applications of superrigidity theory to countable Borel equivalence relations, as well as some recent applications of Borel determinacy. No prior knowledge of superrigidity or determinacy will be assumed.
