Dimensional concordance and logical tameness

Philipp Hieronymi (Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois)

Abstract: In this talk I will discuss the relations between metric dimensions in real euclidean spaces and logical tameness of structures expanding the real field. The main result is a dichotomy: Roughly speaking, such a structure either exhibits no kind of what could reasonably considered logical tameness, or there is a striking agreement of various dimensions on closed sets definable in this structure. I will recall basic notions from both metric geometry and logic.

Games with classical and quanrtum stragegies

Marius Junge (UIUC)

Abstract: I will introduce the notion of games and strategies, and explain some consequences of Grothendieck's inequality. This will material will prepare later talk on the topic.
