Title: Reduction games over $\mathrm{RCA}_0$
+
=== September 14 - organizational meeting ===
  
Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss joint work with Damir D. Dzhafarov and Denis R. Hirschfeldt. Our work centers on the characterization of problems P and Q such that P $\leq_{\omega}$ Q, as well as problems P and Q such that $\mathrm{RCA}_0 \vdash$ Q $\to$ P, in terms of winning strategies in certain games. These characterizations were originally introduced by Hirschfeldt and Jockusch. I will discuss extensions and generalizations of these characterizations, including a certain notion of compactness that allows us, for strategies satisfying particular conditions, to bound the number of moves it takes to win. This bound is independent of the instance of the problem P being considered. This allows us to develop the idea of Weihrauch and generalized Weihrauch reduction over some base theory. Here, we will focus on the base theory $\mathrm{RCA}_0$. In this talk, I will explore these notions of reduction among various principles, including bounding and induction principles.

=== October 12 - Karthik Ravishankar ===
  
Abstract: Many problems in mathematics can be viewed as being coded by sets of natural numbers (as indices).

=== October 26 - Alice Vidrine ===
One can then define the relative computability of sets of natural numbers in various ways, each leading to a precise notion of “degree” of a problem (or set).
 
In each case, these degrees form partial orders, which can be studied as algebraic structures.
 
The study of their finite substructures leads to a better understanding of the partial order as a whole.

Title: Categorical logic for realizability, part I: Categories and the Yoneda Lemma
+
=== November 23 - open slot ===
  
Abstract: An interesting strand of modern research on realizability--a semantics for non-classical logic based on a notion of computation--uses the language of toposes and Grothendieck fibrations to study mathematical universes whose internal notion of truth is similarly structured by computation. The purpose of this talk is to establish the basic notions of category theory required to understand the tools of categorical logic developed in the sequel, with the end goal of understanding the realizability toposes developed by Hyland, Johnstone, and Pitts. The talk will cover the definitions of category, functor, natural transformation, adjunctions, and limits/colimits, with a heavy emphasis on the ubiquitous notion of representability.

The Graduate Logic Seminar is an informal space where graduate students and professors present topics related to logic which are not necessarily original or completed work. This is a space focused principally on practicing presentation skills or learning materials that are not usually presented in a class.

  • When: Tuesdays 4-5 PM
  • Where: Van Vleck 901
  • Organizers: Jun Le Goh

The talk schedule is arranged at the beginning of each semester. If you would like to participate, please contact one of the organizers.
