This is the first meeting of a learning seminar which will run for most of July and August. The proposed day/time for the seminar is on Fridays, 2:30 to 3:30 pm.

In the first few meetings of the seminar we will look at the representation theory of the finite symmetric groups S_n, following the approach of Okounkov and Vershik, which emphasizes the branching rule and the use of Jucys-Murphy elements (all these terms are to be explained as the seminar goes on).

"Different extensions of first-order logic (part 2)"

Having given definitions and examples of two different extensions of first-order logic, I will proceed to sketch a proof that a computably axiomatizable theory is finitely axiomatizable using additional predicates. Knowledge of the first part is not necessary.
