"Reverse Mathematics"

We say that $S \subseteq \mathcal{P}(\omega)$ is an $\omega$-model of a subsystem of second order arithmetic if the $L_2$ structure $(\omega, S, +, \cdot, 0, 1, <)$ correctly models the subsystem in question. The goal of this lecture will be to prove that there is an $\omega$-model of $WKL_0$ consisting entirely of low sets. 

This will involve learning about PA degrees and the low basis theorem.

All are welcome.

We continue where last week's discussion left off by discussing the classification of semivaluations in the valuative tree. Then we return to our study of plane polynomial dynamics.

"Amenable and Non-amenable Semigroups"

Since Nica introduced the notion of amenability of quasi-lattice ordered semigroups, the amenability for many classes of semigroups remain unanswered. We will give a brief overview of semigroup amenability, and show some recent developments on this topic using dilation theory. In particular, we shall show that Artin monoids are non-amenable except the class of right-angled. This is a joint work with Marcelo Laca.
