University Seminar: Logic Across Disciplines-Markov properties

Title: Markov properties
Speaker: Iva Bilanovic, GWU
Date and time: Friday, October 11, 11:00am-12 noon
Place: Phillips Hall (801 22nd Street), Room 736

Abstract: We begin with a historical treatment of Markov properties in the original context of recursively presented groups and their relation to early questions in computability theory. We will then abstract the notion to other classes of structures and, time allowing, consider the examples of partial injection structures and nested equivalence classes.
