    Research


    I'm interested in model theory (a branch of logic), especially in the classification theory of non elementary classes, infinitary logics, extensions of first-order logic, combinatorial set theory, and the applications of these areas to algebra.

    What Shelah think of model theory? See Saharon Shelah's short article

    John Baldwin wrote a paper containing survey of results and some problems that occupy me in recent years.

    My old and outdated "official" page in our departmental catalog is here.

    Model Theory Seminar


    Little before fall 1992 I started a Mathematical Logic Seminar and managed it until fall 2002. I am not responsible for that seminar anymore, it is run now in a different format than in the past by Ernest Schimmerling.
    At present I am organizing a Model Theory Seminar. The seminar meets on Mondays 5-6:30PM in WeH 8220. Information about current talks and talks given the last three years can be found here.
