Teaching

In Summersemester 2009, I am teaching the lecture course Logic I. The problem sessions are on Friday at 16:00, in SR7. I am writing a script for this course which can be downloaded here. I will update it regularly.

We are also continuing the project seminar Algebra and Logic, joint with the university of Duisburg/Essen. More information on when it is taking place, what's on the agenda, and relevant material can be found on the project seminar webpage.

I am one of the organizers of the Young Set Theory Workshop 2009 which took place in Bellaterra, near Barcelona, April 14-18 2009.

In Wintersemester 2007/2008, I taught a lecture course
on Set Theory. I wrote a rudimentary script of the lecture, which you can download
here. If you find typos in the notes, please let me know.

I also taught seminar on Stationary Tower Forcing, together with Philipp Schlicht.
The picture on the right was taken at the beginning of the seminar's last session on carnival. More pictures...

Here is an interesting offer for Shelah's book on proper and improper forcing that I came across in November 2008...

Now everybody nose the Stationary Tower.

Research Interests

Set Theory

Inner Model Theory
