  • April 24, 2024, 4:15 p.m.
    Krzysztof Zakrzewski (Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences UW)
    Function spaces on Corson-like compacta
    Recall that a compact space is Eberlein compact if it is homeomorphic to a subspace of some Banach space equipped with the weak topology. A compact space is \omega-Corson compact if it embeds into a …

  • April 17, 2024, 4:15 p.m.
    Jakub Andruszkiewicz (Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences UW)
    Existence of many finitely generated precompact subgroups of G and L_0(G)
    For a Polish group G one can define L_0(G) as the set of all (Borel or) Lebesgue measurable functions from [0,1] to G. This set, after identifying functions that are equal up to a set …

  • April 10, 2024, 4:15 p.m.
    Kacper Kucharski (Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences UW)
    On property (B) in function spaces
    A topological space Z has the property (B) of Banakh if there exists a countable family of closed nowhere dense subsets of Z that absorbs all compact subsets of Z, i.e., each compact subset of …

    Piotr Zakrzewski (UW)
    On two consequences of CH established by Sierpiński, part 2
    We study the relations between two consequences of the Continuum Hypothesis discovered by Wacław Sierpiński, concerning uniform continuity of continuous functions and uniform convergence of sequences of real-valued functions, defined on uncountable subsets of the …

    Kamil Ryduchowski
    Lusin sets and uncountable Auerbach systems
    Hajek, Kania and Russo showed that under CH there is an equivalent renorming of the Banach space c_0(omega_1) without uncountable Auerbach systems. It is not known whether extra set-theoretic assumptions can be dropped here. During …

  • Feb. 28, 2024, 4:15 p.m.
    Robert Simon
    Paradoxical colouring rules
    A colouring rule is a way to determine a function from a probability space to a set of colours based on the colours of finitely many measure preserving transformations. It is paradoxical if there is …

  • Jan. 24, 2024, 4:15 p.m.
    Taras Banakh (Ivan Franko National University of Lviv and UJK Kielce)
    Strongly rigid countable Hausdorff spaces
    A topological space $X$ is strongly rigid if every no-identity continuous self-map of $X$ is constant. Among known examples of strongly rigid spaces one can recall the famous Cook continua. In fact, every strongly rigid …

  • Jan. 10, 2024, 4:15 p.m.
    Piotr Szewczak (Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw)
    Concentrated sets in the Miller model
    A set of reals X is concentrated if it is uncountable and there is a countable subset D of X such that for each open set U containing D the set X\U is countable. Using …

  • Dec. 20, 2023, 4:15 p.m.
    Zdeněk Silber (IM PAN)
    K) space admitting a nonseparable measur
    In the talk we focus on the relation of countable tightness of the space P(K) of Radon probabilty measures on a compact Hausdorff space K and of existence of measures in P(K) that have uncountable …

    Maciej Malicki (IM PAN)
    Compacta and their homeomorphism groups from posets, part 2
    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 …

  • Dec. 6, 2023, 4:15 p.m.
    Adam Bartoš ("An introduction to abstract Fraïssé theory") and Wiesław Kubiś ("Uncountable homogeneous structures") (Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences)
    "An introduction to abstract Fraïssé theory" and "Uncountable homogeneous structures"
    "An introduction to abstract Fraïssé theory": We give a gentle introduction to abstract countable discrete Fraïssé theory. First, we recall three classical examples of ultrahomogeneous structures: the linear order of the rationals, the random graph, …

    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. …

    David Chodounsky (Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences)
    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 …
