Strict nonforking in resilient theories
Abstract:
Strict nonforking is a forking notion defined by Shelah for NIP
theories and proved very useful in analysing dividing in NIP and NTP2
theories. In joint work with Alex Usvyatsov, we proved symmetry of this
notion in NIP. Recently we generalized this to a more general setting,
that of resilient theories.
Resilient theories were defined by Chernikov and BenYaacov as a class
of theories containing both NIP and simple theories and contained in
NTP2 theories.
I will give all the definitions and try to prove the theorem.

Daniel Palacìn:
Supersimplicity and the
Fitting subgroup
Abstract:
The Fitting subgroup of a given group G is the subgroup generated by
all nilpotent normal subgroups of G. While it is always normal, it
may not be nilpotent. Wagner proved that the Fitting subgroup of a
stable is always nilpotent. However, this is not known for the
wider class of groups with a simple theory.
In this talk we present some of the main tools and notions
of groups in simple theories, and focus on those which have
ordinal Lascar rank. Our aim is to sketch the proof that the
Fitting subgroup of a typedeﬁnable supersimple group is
again nilpotent. This generalizes a proof of Milliet in the ﬁnite
rank case.

dpminimality,
strong dependence and dprank in Ordered Abelian Groups
Abstract:
In
recent years there has been great interest in NIP theories, largely
due to the work of Shelah. Trying to solve the equation x / dependent
= superstable / stable
Shelah has developed the notion of
strongly dependent theory.Also, as a generalization of
other notions of minimality, dpminimality has been introduced. Due
to work of Hrushovski and others, valued fields play an important
role in the development of NIP theories. There are also interesting
conjectures (due to Shelah among others) saying that NIP fields
(maybe with extra conditions) are certain Henselian valued fields.
Prior to the characterisation of valued fields which are
dpminimal or strongly dependent, which are interesting open
questions, it is necessary to know which Ordered Abelian Groups (OAG
for short) are dpminimal or strongly dependent. (It is well known
that any OAG is NIP)
We provide an answer to those questions about
OAGs. We develop tools to compute dprank, and apply them to OAGs,
characterising dpminimality and strong dependence in OAGs. We are
able to compute the exact value of the dprank of any OAG.

Uniformity functions in
descriptive set theory
Abstract:
It is a typical application of effective descriptive set theory to
witness a given property
about sets in a good uniform way, where the term “good”usually means
(1) continuous or
(2) Borel.
An example about (1) is the SuslinLusin Separation Theorem: two
disjoint analytic sets in Polish spaces are separated by a Borel set,
and the
SuslinKleene Theorem: there
exists a continuous function u : ω^{ω} × ω^{ω} → ω^{ω}
such that whenever (α,β) encodes a pair of
disjoint analytic sets then u(α,β)
encodes a Borel separating set.
An example about (2) is the following result of
Louveau: if P ⊆× is a Borel
set, where and are Polish
spaces, such that
every section P_{x}
is a _{ξ}^{0}
set then there exists a Borelmeasurable function
u : → ω^{ω} and a
_{ξ}^{0}
set G_{ξ}
⊆ ω^{ω} × such that P is the set of all (x,y)
for
which the pair (u(x),y) belongs to G_{ξ}. (The latter solves the socalled Section
Problem.)
In this talk we will state the basic notions of
effective descriptive set theory, give
further examples and present new results of this type. These results
deal with diverse
topics including: the Baire property of analytic sets, refinements of
Polish topologies, and
the hierarchy of Borelmeasurable functions. The work on the latter
topic is joint with T.
Kihara and has applications to the Decomposability
Conjecture, cf. the following talk by
T. Kihara.

Takayuki Kihara:
Decomposition, dimension,
and degrees
Abstract:
Nikolai Luzin asked whether every Borel function on the real line can
be decomposed into countably many continuous functions. Although the
full Luzin problem was negatively answered in the 1930s, this problem
and related results prompted many researchers to develop the theory of
decomposability, and the longrunning line of this research recently
led us a beautiful conjecture on decomposability of the hierarchy of
Borel functions. Recently, by using deep methods from computability
theory, V. Gregoriades and the speaker obtained a new decomposability
theorem in the hierarchy of Borel functions. In this talk, we see how
computability theory gives a new insight into this descriptive set
theoretic problem.
Moreover, in computability theory, this result led to the discovery of
the importance of the notion of topological dimension in computability
theory. Motto RosSchlichtSelivanov asked whether there are at least
two piecewise homeomorphism types of Polish spaces having no
transfinite inductive dimension. A. Pauly and the speaker pointed out
that R. Pol's counterexample to P. Alexandrov's problem (a strongly
infinite dimensional compact metrizable space which is not
decomposable into countably many finitedimensional subspaces) is not
piecewise homeomorphic to Hilbert cube. We will also discuss
computabilitytheoretic aspects of this space.

Pierre Simon:
Definably amenable NIP
groups
I will
talk about definably amenable groups in NIP theories, that is NIP
groups admitting a translationinvariant measure on the class of
definable sets. Examples include stable groups, compact Lie
groups and solvable NIP groups. In a joint work with Artem Chernikov,
we characterize "generic types" in this context, describe
the space of invariant measures and prove "generic compact
domination". I will present this work
and, if time permits,
mention some more recent developments.

Schöne Gruppen
Abstract:
In
Zusammenarbeit mit Thomas Blossier wird gezeigt, daß,
gegeben ein schönes Paar (M,E) von Modellen einer
stabilen Theorie mit nfcp und EI jede definierbare
Gruppe sich projiziert, bis auf Isogenie, auf die
Erationalen Punkte einer Tdefinierbaren Gruppe H
über E mit einer Tdefinierbaren Gruppe als Kern.
Wir geben auch eine vollständige Beschreibung
interpretierbarer Gruppen für Paare algebraisch
abgeschlossener Körper.

Martin Hils: Bewertete Körper mit
Automorphismus und NTP2
Abstract:
Im Vortrag werde ich folgenden allgemeinen Erhaltungssatz für NTP2
diskutieren. Ein bewerteter Körper mit
Automorphismus in Restklassencharakteristik 0, der KörperQuantoren in der dreisortigen
Sprache von Pas eliminiert, ist NTP2, sofern sowohl der Restklassenkörper als
auch die Wertegruppe (jeweils mit induziertem Automorphismus) NTP2 sind.
Hieraus folgt zum Beispiel, dass
algebraisch abgeschlossene bewertete Körper mitNichtstandardFrobeniusAutomorphismus
in Restklassencharakteristik 0 NTP2 sind.
(Es handelt sich um eine gemeinsame Arbeit mit Artem Chernikov.)
