Will Boney (University of Illinois at Chicago) "Tameness in Abstract Elementary Classes"
Tameness is a locality property of Galois types in AECs. Since its isolation by Grossberg and VanDieren 10 years ago, it has been used to prove new results (upward categoricity transfer, stability transfer) and replace set theoretic hypotheses (existence of independence notions). In this talk, we will outline the basic definitions, summarize some key results, and discuss some open questions related to tameness.
You are cordially invited to the post-winter-break session of the Emerson Hall Poetry Night, on Thursday, February 5 at 7:30 PM. As always, it will be in our beloved Robbins Library, on the second floor of Emerson Hall.
As before: come to read or just to listen; come with a significant other or a friend, etc.; come to drink wine and eat too much cheese after dinner without the usual social stigma. Also, please forward this to anyone who might be interested, regardless of which department they're affiliated with. See you all there!
