2019 seminar talk: Symbiosis and Upwards Reflection

Talk held by Yurii Khomskii (Amsterdam University College, Netherlands and Hamburg University, Germany) at the KGRC seminar on 2019-10-24.


In [1], Bagaria and Väänänen developed a framework for studying the large cardinal strength of Löwenheim-Skolem theorems of strong logics using the notion of Symbiosis (originally introduced by Väänänen in his PhD Thesis). Symbiosis provides a way of relating model theoretic properties of strong logics to definability in set theory. We continue the systematic investigation of Symbiosis and apply it to upwards Löwenheim-Skolem theorems (and partially to compactness properties). As an application, we provide some upper and lower bounds of the large cardinal strength of upwards Löwenheim-Skolem-type theorems of second order logic.

This is joint work with Lorenzo Galeotti and Jouko Väänänen.

Here are the slides for this talk.
