    Compacta and their homeomorphism groups from posets

    Very recently A. Bartoš, T. Bice and A. Vignati discovered a duality, generalizing the Stone duality, between second countable T_1 compacta and graded omega-posets. Their approach allows for elementary combinatorial constructions, in the spirit of Fraïssé theory, of classical cont...

    Fraenkel-Mostowski models revisited

    A dynamical ideal is a group G acting on a set X, together with an ideal I on X invariant under the action. A dynamical ideal comes with an associated model of ZF set theory. I will discuss several theorems which connect dynamical properties of the ideal with fragments of axiom of choice in the asso...

    Games for chromatic numbers of analytic graphs

    We define games which characterize countable coloring numbers of analytic graphs on Polish spaces. These games can provide simple verification of the countable chromatic number of certain graphs. We also get a simpler proof of a dichotomy originally proved by Adams and Zapletal: if an analytic graph...

    Cofinalities of the symmetric group and of the ultrapowers of ω

    We consider the following cardinal invariants of the continuum: cf(Sym(ω)), being the cofinality of the group of permutations of ω, and mcf, defined as the minimal cofinality of an ultrapower of ω over any non-principal ultrafilter. During the talk we will present known results regarding the rela...

    Ramsey properties of the distance on nonseparable spheres

    Given a nonseparable metric space (M,d) bounded by 2 we consider (A) dichotomies D_r for r in (0,2): either there is uncountable subset N of M such that d(x, y) > r for all distinct x,y  in N or else M is the union of countably many sets each of diameter not bigger than r; (B) the metric...

    Countable discrete extensions of compact lines

    We consider a separable compact line K and its extension L consisting of K and a countable number of isolated points. The main object of study is the existence of a bounded extension operator E: C(K) -> C(L). We show that if such an operator exists then there is one which norm is an odd natural n...

    Menger continua via projective Fraïssé theory

    Projective Fraïssé theory was introduced by T.Irwin and S.Solecki as a natural framework for analyzing the dynamics of homeomorphism groups of compact metrizable spaces in terms of finite combinatorics. In this talk I will provide some basic background in projective Fraïssé t...
