Graduate Seminar
Spencer Unger Carnegie Mellon University Title: Trees in Set Theory Abstract: This is the third in a very drawn out series of talks that I've given in the graduate student seminar over my time at CMU. In the first two talks I discussed the modern set theoretic tools of forcing and large cardinals. In this talk, I'll take the shortest path to understanding the statement of a theorem that requires the ideas of forcing and large cardinals to prove. The theorem is about branches through trees of uncountable height and it involves set theoretic generalizations of the Infinite Ramsey Theorem and the Konig Infinity Lemma.
