Jing Zhang Carnegie Mellon University Title: No More Nonmeasurable Sets! Abstract: In this talk, we define 2playergames associated to each subset of real numbers. It is a question whether there exists a winning strategy for any one of the players. First we work in the usual mathematical system (aka ZFC) to see what sets are determined. Then we replace Axiom of Choice by Axiom of Determinacy (every subset of real is determined) and derive that every subset of real numbers is measurable.
