Title: Third Annual Markov Lecture

Abstract: Pseudo stochastic Time-inhomogeneous Automorphisms of the Random Markov-Fraisse Polygraph.

Stochastic processes have long been an important subject of study in mathematics, but recently increasing attention has been paid to pseudo-stochastic theory. This has the great advantage that results which are unattainable in the study of normal stochastic processes can now be given pseudo-proofs, and a large number of pseudo-theorems have been obtained in the field. We will focus on the Markov-Fraisse polygraph, a construct of great utility for obtaining convincing (or more usually pseudo-convincing) 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.
