Model theory and complexity


Recent progress in model theory is changing our understanding of how the finite and infinite interact. One aspect of this story has to do with the emerging appearance of complexity in so-called simple unstable theories, which provide a model theoretic framework for studying certain families of "random" objects, such as the theories of random graphs or hypergraphs or pseudofinite fields.


Speaker Biography
Maryanthe Malliaris received her Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley in model theory, and is currently Professor of Mathematics at the University of Chicago. She was a winner of the 2010 Kurt Gödel Research Prize Fellowship, and in 2017 was awarded the Hausdorff medal for joint work with Saharon Shelah. Malliaris was an invited speaker at the 2018 International Congress of Mathematicians.
