The Theory of Forcing [Part 1]
Location: Hill 423
Date & time: Wednesday, 26 February 2020 at 12:00PM - 1:00PM
Abstract: I will go over the basic terminology and theory of forcing. Forcing is a fundamental technique in set theory mostly used for establishing consistency results. The technique, however, involves a lot of technical definitions and is often a student's first foray into more advanced set theory. So I hope to give some perspective and intuition into these definitions.
