## Revision as of 14:26, 3 October 2022

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.

## Fall 2022

### 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.

**October 3 - Yunting Zhang**

**Title:** Some History of Logic

**Abstract:** The lives of great thinkers are sometimes overshadowed by their achievements-and there is perhaps no better illustration of this phenomenon than the life and work of Gödel.
Take a look at Gödel's own timeline and see how war and other mathematicians influenced him.

**October 10 - Yuxiao Fu**

**October 17 - Alice Vidrine**

**October 24 - Hongyu Zhu**

**October 31 - Break for Halloween**

**November 7 - John Spoerl**

**November 14 - Josiah Jacobsen-Grocott**

**November 21 - Karthik Ravishankar**

**November 28 - Logan Heath**

**December 5 - Logan Heath**

**December 12 - TBA**
