On the Borel reducibility Main Gap (the models)

20.03.2024. Logic Seminar, University of Helsinki.

Abstract.
One of the biggest motivations in Generalized Descriptive Set Theory has been the program of identifying counterparts of classification theory in the setting of Borel reducibility. The most important has been the division line classifiable vs nonclassifiable, i.e. identify Shelah's Main Gap in the Borel reducibility hierarchy. This was studied by Friedman, Hyttinen and Weinstein (ne Kulikov) in their book "Generalized descriptive set theory and classification theory". Their work led them to conjecture the following:
If T is a classifiable theory and T' is a nonclassifiable theory, then the isomorphism relation of T is Borel reducible to the isomorphism relation of T'.
In this talk we will prove this conjecture, discuss the objects introduced, and provide a detailed overview of the gaps between classifiable shallow theories, classifiable nonshallow theories, and nonclassifiable theories. The main result that will be presented is the following:
Suppose \kappa=\lambda^+=2^\lambda, 2^c \leq \lambda = \lambda^{\omega_1} and T_1 and T_2 are countable complete firstorder theories in a countable vocabulary.
If T_1 is a classifiable theory and T_2 is a nonclassifiable theory, then the isomorphism relation of T_1 is continuously reducible to the isomorphism relation of T_2, and the isomorphism relation of T_2 is strictly above the isomorphism relation of T_1 in the Borel reducibility hierarchy.
This talk will be based on the article Shelah's Main Gap and the generalized Borelreducibility (https://arxiv.org/abs/2308.07510)

Generalised Descriptive Set Theory, part III

28.03.2023. KGRC Set Theory Research Seminar, University of Vienna.

Abstract.
Following part I and part II in this three part series, during this talk we will discuss where in the generalized Borelreducibility hierarchy are the isomorphism relation of first order complete theories. These theories are divided into two kinds: classifiable and nonclassifiable. To study the classifiable theories case is needed the use of EhrenfeuchtFraïssé games. On the other hand the study of the nonclassifiable theories is done by using colored ordered trees. The goal of the talk is to see the classifiable theories case and sketch the ideas of nonclassifiable theories.

Generalised Descriptive Set Theory, part II

21.03.2023. KGRC Set Theory Research Seminar, University of Vienna.

Abstract.
We have introduced the notions of κBorel class, κanalytic class, κanalyticcoanalytic class, κBorel* class in the previous talk. In descriptive set theory the Borel class, the analyticcoanalytic class, and the Borel* class are the same class, we showed that this doesn't hold in the generalized descriptive set theory.
In this talk, we will show the consistency of "κBorel* class is equal to the κanalytic class". This was initially proved by Hyttinen and Weinstein (former Kulikov), under the assumption V=L. We will show a different proof that shows that this holds in L but also can be forced by a cofinalitypreserving GCHpreserving forcing from a model of GCH, but also by a <κclosed κ+‑cc forcing.

Fake Reflection

23.01.2020. KGRC Research Seminar, Kurt Gödel Research Center, University of Vienna.

Abstract.
Motivated from many results in generalized descriptive set theory, Filter Reflection (aka Fake Reflection) is an abstract version of reflection compatible with large cardinals, forcing axioms, but also V=L.
In this talk we will present the motivation and definition of filter reflection, we will explain how to force filter reflection and how to force its failure. We will also show some applications and properties of filter reflection, e.g. the consistency of “E^K_{w_1} filter reflects to a subset of E^K_{w}”.
This is a joint work with Gabriel Fernandes and Assaf Rinot.

The Main Gap in the generalized Borelreducibility hierarchy

11.03.2019. Set Theory Colloquium, BarIlan University.

Abstract.
During this talk we will discuss where in the generalized Borelreducibility hierarchy are the isomorphism relation of first order complete theories. These theories are divided in two kind:classifiable and nonclassifiable. To study the classifiable theories case is needed the use of EhrenfeuchtFraïssé games. On the other hand the study of the nonclassifiable theories is done by using colored trees. The goal of the talk is to see the classifiable theories case and start the nonclassifiable theories case by proving that it is possible to map every element of the generalized Baire, f, into a colored tree, J(f), such that; for every f and g elements of the generalized Baire space, J(f) and J(g) are isomorphic as colored trees if and only if f and g coincide on a club.

An introduction to generalized descriptive set theory, part 3

07.01.2019. Set Theory Colloquium, BarIlan University.

Abstract.
After introducing the notions of KBorel class, KDelta_1^1 class, KBorel^* class we saw some subset relations between them in the previous talk ( http://u.math.biu.ac.il/~morenom3/GDST2018.pdf ). We finished the previous talk with a sketch of the proof of:
if V=L, then $\kappa$Borel* class is equal to the $\Sigma1^ 1(\kappa)$ class.
We will see this proof in complete detail, starting from the key lemma, Lemma 1.13 on the notes.

An introduction to generalized descriptive set theory, part 2

31.12.2019. Set Theory Colloquium, BarIlan University.

Abstract.
After introducing the notions of KBorel class, KDelta_1^1 class, KBorel^* class in the previous talk ( http://u.math.biu.ac.il/~morenom3/GDST2018.pdf ), in this talk, we will show the relation between this classes.
In descriptive set theory the Borel class, the Delta_1^1 class, the Borel* class are the same class, this doesn't hold in the generalized descriptive set theory, in particular under the assumption V=L the Borel* class is equal to the Sigma1^_1 class.

Σ_1^1complete quasiorders in L

21.03.2018. Logic Seminar, Helsinki Logic Group.

Abstract.
One of the basic differences between descriptive set theory (DST) and generalized descriptive set theory (GDST) is the existence of some analytic sets in GDST that have no counterpart in DST. The equivalence modulo the nonstationary ideal restricted to a stationary set S (EMS) is an example of these sets.
These relations have been studied in GDST to understand some of the differences between DST and GDST. In particular, EMS, with S the set of ordinals with cofinality alpha, has been used to study the isomorphism relations in the Borelreducibility hierarchy. One of the main results related to this is:
If V=L, then EMS, with the set of ordinals with cofinality alpha, is a complete analytic equivalence relation in the generalized Baire space.
From this, it was possible to prove that the isomorphism relation of theories with OCP or SDOP are complete analytic equivalence relations in L(under some cardinal assumptions).
In this talk I will show that the inclusion modulo the nonstationary ideal restricted to the set of ordinals with cofinality alphais is a complete analytic quasiorder in L. This result has many corollary, two of which are:
(V=L) The isomorphism relation of a theory is either a complete analytic equivalence relation or a Delta_1^1 equivalence relation (under some cardinal assumptions).
(V=L) If kappa is not the successor of an omegacofinal cardinal, then the embedability of dense linear orders is a complete analytic relation.
