Course Information:

  • There will be no required text.  Here is a list of sources that I will often borrow from or cite:

  • Class Meetings: There are three hours of lecture a week: MWF 9-9:50 to be held by Zoom (Zoom invitation to be emailed)

  • Your entire grade will be determined by a 50 minute presentation on the topic of your choice to be given during the final two weeks of the quarter.  Beamer presentations strongly encouraged.  You must communicate your choice to me by the end of Week 5.  Here is a list of suggested topics:
    • Model theory of the Gurarij Banach space (see this paper by I. Ben-Yaacov and C.W. Henson)
    • Model theory of the Urysohn space (see these slides by B. Hart or Section 5 of this paper by C. Ealy and I. Goldbring)
    • Model theory and ergodic theory (see, for example, this paper by T. Iberlucia and T. Tsankov)
    • Randomizations of structures (see this paper by I. Ben-Yaacov and H. Jerome Keisler)
    • Model theory of operator algebras (this is a massive and very active area of research, so if you want to speak about this and do not know where to start, let me know)
    • The almost-sure theory of finite metric spaces (see this paper by I. Goldbring, B. Hart, and A. Kruckman)
    • Ehrenfeucht-Fraisse Games in continuous logic (see these slides by B. Hart and their continuation
