Graduate Logic Seminar
The Graduate Logic Seminar is an informal space where graduate students and professors present topics related to logic which are not necessarily original or completed work. This is a space focused principally on practicing presentation skills or learning materials that are not usually presented in a class.
- When: Mondays 3:30-4:30 PM
- Where: Van Vleck B139
- Organizers: Karthik Ravishankar and Antonio Nakid Cordero
The talk schedule is arranged at the beginning of each semester. If you would like to participate, please contact one of the organizers.

September 12 - Organizational Meeting
We will meet to assign speakers to dates.
September 19 - Karthik Ravishankar
Title: Lowness for Isomorphism
Abstract: A Turing degree is said to be low for isomorphism if it can only compute an isomorphism between computable structures only when a computable isomorphism already exists. In this talk, we show that the measure of the class of low for isomorphism sets in Cantor space is 0 and that no Martin Lof random is low for isomorphism.
September 26 - Antonio Nakid Cordero
Title: When Models became Polish: an introduction to the Topological Vaught Conjecture
Abstract: Vaught's Conjecture, originally asked by Vaught in 1961, is one of the most (in)famous open problems in mathematical logic. The conjecture is that a complete theory on a countable language must either have countably-many or continuum-many non-isomorphic models. In this talk, we will discuss some of the main ideas that surround this conjecture, with special emphasis on a topological generalization in terms of the continuous actions of Polish groups.
