Homogeneous structures, permutation groups, and connections to set theory

A meeting in celebration of the 70th birthday of John Truss

School of Mathematics, University of Leeds

This conference focusses on several related interests of John: first order structures which are homogeneous in the sense of Fraïssé (or of more recent generalisations), and also ω-categorical structures in model theory; automorphism groups of such structures, and connections to other fields such as permutation group theory, semigroup theory, Ramsey theory and other aspects of combinatorics, topological dynamics; connections to set theory – related questions in combinatorial set theory, and permutation group methods in set theory.

The meeting is supported by the School of Mathematics at the University of Leeds.
