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.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
