Math 771: Set Theory

 

Instructor: Joe Miller

Textbook: Kunen: Set Theory (College Publications, ISBN-10: 1848900503)

Course Description: This is a one-semester introductory graduate course into set theory. Very basic familiarity with the axioms of ZFC, ordinals and cardinals, and well-orderings will be assumed. The course will cover some infinitary combinatorics, some easy consistency proofs, Goedel's constructible universe of sets, and forcing constructions to obtain independence results over ZFC. Time permitting, I will finish with the Shoenfield Absoluteness Theorem.
