SUMMER SCHOOL in Set theory: Large cardinals, inner models and fine structure, 25 June --6 July 2012, Irvine CA (U.S.A.)

Dear Colleagues/Students,

Southern California Logic Group is organizing a graduate summer school in set theory to be held 
June 25 through July 6 at the UC Irvine Campus. The topic of the summer schools is

Large Cardinals, Inner Models and fine structure.

The link to the school homepage can be found at

The idea is to make a very intensive school where both students and instructors will give 
presentations and where discussions will be held to work on problems. The topics will will cover 
both the theory and applications of fine structural inner models. The level will depend on the 
pool of participants and will be chosen in order to fit the participants background to the best 
possible extent. The general idea is to start with small models and move gradually up as far as 
the time permits.  As a prerequisite, standard graduate course of set theory is necessary. Basic 
knowledge of forcing is preferable, but not absolutely necessary.

The school is able to provide full support to US citizens and permanent residents. I am also 
looking for funding for foreign students, but foreign students may need funding from their 
universities or advisors.

I would be very grateful if you could help spread this message among all graduate students who 
may be potentially interested and to set theorists who may have interested students.

I would be also very grateful if students who consider attending contact me as soon as possible, 
preferably by April 20, even if they have not made final decision by that time. This would help 
me to estimate the number of participants as well as to set up the program -- by learning about 
their set theoretic background -- and also organize housing.

Please do not hesitate to contact me and ask questions if you have any.
