UIC Logic Seminar

Fall 1997

Seminars will usually be held Wednesdays at 4:00 in 412 SEO.

ACFA Seminar

In Fall '97 Dave Marker will give a series of lectures on Mondays 2:00-3:30 in 412 SEO on ACFA--the model completeion of the theory of algebraically closed fields of characteristic zero with an automorphism. Chatzidakis and Hrushovski have shown that this theory has a very interesting model theory--it is an example of a "simple" theory and there is a rich interplay between model theory and algebra. This model theory plays an important role in Hrushovski's proof of the Manin-Mumford conjecture for number fields.

I will attempt to prepare notes of my lectures and make them available. These are in postscript format.
