Selection Principles in Mathematics (an overview)

יום ב', 04/02/2019 - 13:00
The theory of selection principles deals with the possibility of obtaining mathematically significant objects by selecting elements from sequences of sets. The studied properties mainly include covering properties, measure- and category-theoretic properties, and local properties in topological spaces, especially functions spaces. Often, the characterization of a mathematical property using a selection principle is a nontrivial task leading to new insights on the characterized property. 
I will give an overview of this theory and, if time permits, I will present some results obtained jointly with Boaz Tsaban and Lyubomyr Zdomskyy.
