Mathematics Colloquium

Title:  The Continuum Hypothesis and Its Enemies

Abstract:  Cantor's continuum hypothesis (CH) has consequences in many parts of mathematics. I'll give a few examples, but most of the talk will be about what can happen if CH is false. By itself, the negation of CH is not very useful, but set theorists have studied more specific principles that contradict CH. I'll describe some of these principles, indicate where they come from, and exhibit some of their consequences.
