"The c.e. embeddability condition"

We will discuss the c.e. embeddability condition, which is a condition introduced by Richter, and which provides an exact characterization of those structures which do not code any non-c.e. sets. Such structures cannot have nontrivial Turing or enumeration degrees. If time permits, we will demonstrate that linear orderings have the c.e. embeddability condition.

"Tomato Packing and Lettuce-Based Crypto"

Lettuce is good for you. Lattices are good for humanity. We are going to present some nutritious facts about lattices and convince you that they are good for your mathematical diet. Anton will explain the importance of lattices in the tomato/orange/sphere packing problem, and Antonio will show you that many portions of lattices a day may keep you safe from quantum hackers.

"The Jacobson Radical of Certain Semicrossed Products"

We study the Jacobson radical of the semicrossed product $A\times_\alpha P$ when $A$ is a simple C*-algebra and $P$ is either a subsemigroup of an abelian group or a free semigroup. A full characterization is obtained for a large subset of these semicrossed products and we apply our results to a number of examples.
