I will speak at the BEST conference, which is held as a symposium in the much larger 95th Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, at the University of California at Riverside, June 18-20, 2014.
This talk will be for specialists in the BEST symposium.
Abstract. I shall introduce several new large cardinal concepts, namely, the strongly uplifting cardinals, the superstrongly unfoldable cardinals and the almost-hugely unfoldable cardinals, and prove their tight connection with one another — actually, they are equivalent! — as well as their equiconsistency with several natural instances of the boldface resurrection axiom, such as the boldface resurrection axiom for proper forcing. This is joint work with Thomas A. Johnstone.
I am also scheduled to give a plenary General Pubic Lecture, entitled Higher infinity and the foundations of mathematics, as a part of the larger AAAS program, to which the general public is invited.
There is a very interesting harmony in the words of the title. The meaning of the phrases could be quite different for those who are not familiar with definitions!
