 +  Title: Degrees of points in topological spaces 
   
 +  Abstract: An overview of some results from Takayuki Kihara, Keng Meng Ng, and Arno Pauly in their paper Enumeration Degrees and NonMetrizable Topology. We will look at a range of topological spaces and the corresponding classes in the enumeration degrees as well as ways in which we can distinguish the type of classes using the separation axioms.

−  Title: Lattice Embeddings of the mDegrees and Second Order Arithmetic
 
   
−  Abstract: Lachlan, in a result later refined and clarified by Odifreddi, proved in 1970 that initial segments of the mdegrees can be embedded as an upper semilattice formed as the limit of finite distributive lattices. This allows us to show that the manyone degrees codes satisfiability in secondorder arithmetic, due to a later result of Nerode and Shore. We will take a journey through Lachlan's rather complicated construction which sheds a great deal of light on the ordertheoretic properties of manyone reducibility.

 +  Abstract: We look at the initialsegment complexity of Weak Solovay quantum random states using MK, a prefixfree version of quantum Kolmogorov complexity. The statement of our result is similar to the LevinSchnorr theorem in classical algorithmic randomness.

−  Title: Scott Rank of Computable Models
 
−   
−  Abstract: Infinatary logic extends the notions of first order logic by allowing infinite formulas. Scott's Isomorphism Theorem states that any countable structure can be characterized up to isomorphism by a single countable sentence. Closely related to the complexity of this sentence is what is known as the Scott Rank of the structure. In this talk we restrict our attention to computable models and look at an upper bound on the Scott Rank of such structures.

−  '''Iván Ongay Valverde'''  Exploring different versions of the SemiOpen Coloring Axiom (SOCA)
 
−   
−  In 1985, Avraham, Rubin and Shelah published an article where they introduced different coloring axioms. The weakest of them, the SemiOpen Coloring Axiom (SOCA), states that given an uncountable second countable metric space, $E$, and $W\subseteq E^{\dagger}:=E\times E\setminus \{(x, x) :x \in E\}$ open and symmetric, there is an uncountable subset $H\subseteq E$ such that either $H^{\dagger}\subseteq W$ or $H^{\dagger}\cap W=\emptyset$. We say that $W$ is an open coloring and $H$ is a homogeneous subset of $E$. This statement contradicts CH but, as shown also by Avraham, Rubin and Shelah, it is compatible with the continuum taking any other size. This classic paper leaves some questions open (either in an implicit or an explicit way):
 
−   
−   Is the axiom weaker if we demand that $W$ is clopen?  
−   If the continuum is bigger than $\aleph_2$, can we ask that $H$ has the same size as $E$?
 
−   Can we expand this axiom to spaces that are not second countable and metric?
 
−   
−  These questions lead to different versions of SOCA. In this talk, we will analyze how they relate to the original axiom.

−  '''James Earnest Hanson'''  Strongly minimal sets in continuous logic
 
−   
−  The precise structural understanding of uncountably categorical theories given by the proof of the BaldwinLachlan theorem is known to fail in continuous logic in the context of inseparably categorical theories. The primary obstacle is the absence of strongly minimal sets in some inseparably categorical theories. We will develop the concept of strongly minimal sets in continuous logic and discuss some common conditions under which they are present in an $\omega$stable theory. Finally, we will examine the extent to which we recover a BaldwinLachlan style characterization in the presence of strongly minimal sets.

−  '''Manlio Valenti'''  The complexity of closed Salem sets (20 minutes version)
 
−   
−  A central notion in geometric measure theory is the one of Hausdorff dimension. As a consequence of Frostman's lemma, the Hausdorff dimension of a Borel subset A of the Euclidean ndimensional space can be determined by looking at the behaviour of probability measures with support in A. The possibility to apply methods from Fourier analysis to estimate the Hausdorff dimension gives birth to the notion of Fourier dimension. It is known that, for Borel sets, the Fourier dimension is less than or equal to the Hausdorff dimension. The sets for which the two notions agree are called Salem sets.

−  In this talk we will study the descriptive complexity of the family of closed Salem subsets of the real line.

−  '''Patrick Nicodemus'''  Proof theory of Second Order Arithmetic and System F
 
−   
−  A central theme in proof theory is to show that some formal system has the property that whenever A is provable, there is a proof of A in "normal form"  a direct proof without any detours. Such results have numerous and immediate consequences  often consistency follows as an easy corollary. The Curry Howard correspondence describes of equivalences between normalization of proofs and program termination in typed lambda calculi. We present an instance of this equivalence, between the proof theory of intuitionistic second order arithmetic and the second order polymorphic lambda calculus of Girard and Reynolds, aka system F.

−  Title: A couple of summer results
 
−   
−  Abstract: Lately, I have been studying how subsets of reals closed under Turing equivalence behave through the lenses of algebra, measure theory and orders.
 
−   
−  In this talk I will classify which subsets of reals closed under Turing equivalence generate subfields or $\mathbb{Q}$vector spaces of $\mathbb{R}$. We will show that there is a nonmeasurable set whose Turing closure becomes measurable (and one that stays nonmeasurable) and, if we have enough time, we will see a model where there are 5 possible order types for $\aleph_1$ dense subsets of reals, but just 1 for $\aleph_1$ dense subsets of reals closed under Turing equivalence.
