Graduate Logic Seminar
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: Mondays 4p-5p
- Where: on line (ask for code).
- 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.

Fall 2020 - Tentative schedule
September 14 - Josiah Jacobsen-Grocott
Title: Degrees of points in topological spaces
Abstract: An overview of some results from Takayuki Kihara, Keng Meng Ng, and Arno Pauly in their paper Enumeration Degrees and Non-Metrizable Topology. We will look at a range of topological spaces and the corresponding classes in the enumeration degrees as well as ways in which we can distinguish the type of classes using the separation axioms.
September 28 - James Hanson
Title: The Semilattice of Definable Sets in Continuous Logic
Abstract: After an analysis-free exposition of definable sets in continuous logic, we will present a fun, illustrated proof that any finite bounded lattice can be the poset of definable subsets of $S_1(T)$ for a continuous theory $T$.

Short talk by Tejas Bhojraj at 3:30PM
Title: A Levin-Schnorr type result for Weak Solovay random states.
Abstract: We look at the initial-segment complexity of Weak Solovay quantum random states using MK, a prefix-free version of quantum Kolmogorov complexity. The statement of our result is similar to the Levin-Schnorr theorem in classical algorithmic randomness.
