MATH 5026: Topics in Mathematical Logic

Description: Topics include, but are not restricted to, recursion theory (degree structures, hyperarithmetic hierarchy, applications to computable algebra, reverse mathematics), model theory (quantifier elimination, o-minimality, types, categoricity, indiscernible), set theory (ordinals, cardinals, Martin's axiom, constructible sets, forcing), and proof theory (deductive systems, cut elimination and applications, ordinal analysis). With a change of content, this course is repeatable to a maximum of twelve credits.

Prerequisites: MATH 5260.

Credits: 3


MATH 5026 - Section 1: Introduction to Randomness

Description: Definitions of randomness using different paradigms, and their relationships to computability theory and reverse mathematics. Topics include: Kolmogorov complexity, Martin-Löf randomness, computable and left-c.e. reals, Van Lambalgen’s theorem, effective 0-1 laws, Pi^0_1 classes of randoms and their properties, and the relationship of random reals to PA sets.
