Jacob Davis Carnegie Mellon University Title: Third Annual Markov Lecture Abstract: Pseudo stochastic Timeinhomogeneous Automorphisms of the Random MarkovFraisse Polygraph.Stochastic processes have long been an important subject of study in mathematics, but recently increasing attention has been paid to pseudostochastic theory. This has the great advantage that results which are unattainable in the study of normal stochastic processes can now be given pseudoproofs, and a large number of pseudotheorems have been obtained in the field. We will focus on the MarkovFraisse polygraph, a construct of great utility for obtaining convincing (or more usually pseudoconvincing) arguments. The automorphisms of this polygraph then allow the same result to be expressed in a wide range of superficially dissimilar ways.This talk is joint work with the CMU Graduate Student Collaborative Committee.
