Organizational Meeting on Graduate Courses offered at Fields Inst. this semester:
Thematic Program on Forcing and its Applications
Wednesday, September 12, 2012, 12:30 p.m., Fields Institute, 222 College St.
Graduate courses (starting the week of Sept. 17)
Course on Forcing Alan Dow (UNC Charolette)
Tentatively Tuesdays and Thursdays 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Stewart Library
This will be a basic Forcing course directed towards graduate students and non-experts which will still reach a reasonable level of sophistication in designing forcing notions. An emphasis will be placed on examples and on the methodology of designing the forcings themselves rather than the formal and rigorous development of the logical underpinnings of forcing.
Course on Large Cardinals
Paul Larson (Miami University)
Tentatively Tuesdays and Thursdays 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Stewart Library
Large cardinal axioms, also known as the axioms of the higher infinite, posit cardinals that prescribe their own transcendence over smaller cardinals and provide a superstructure for the analysis of strong propositions in set theory. They form an essentially linear hierarchy reaching up to inconsistent extensions of motivating concepts. This course will focus on the most fundamental large cardinal notions, emphasizing their inter-relationship with combinatorics and with forcing techniques.

Dear All, We are running a workshop on mathematics and oceanography at the Fields Institute on June 13 - 16, 2011. The purpose is to bring together mathematicians and ocean scientists to confer on the present state of research and the current body of knowledge on ocean dynamics, and in particular on tsunami predictions and the dynamics of rogue waves. There is a sense of urgency in the ocean sciences and the mathematics communities over these questions, due to the very recent tsunami disaster in Japan. Our purpose is to inform the mathematics community about problems of prediction and of description of extreme ocean waves, and in particular the role that can be played by mathematical tools and techniques. As well, our purpose is to provide a venue from which collaborations are developed between the two communities of mathematicians and ocean scientists. You are all welcome to attend the workshop, which has no registration fee. More information is available at the Fields Institute website: http://www.fields.utoronto.ca/programs/scientific/10-11/seawaves/ <http://www.fields.utoronto.ca/programs/scientific/10-11/seawaves/> Hoping to see you there, Walter and Catherine
The Fields Undergraduate Network (FUN) organizes monthly meetings to explore different areas of mathematical research. The theme as well as the host university will vary from month to month. All interested undergraduates and graduates are welcome to attend. We especially encourage participation by members of student math societies.
