My research collaborators

CollaborationI have been very fortunate in my research to have had the opportunity to work closely with a number of insightful researchers. I’ve learned a great deal from them, and I’m truly grateful.

So I’ve gathered here a list of my collaborators. In almost all cases, the collaboration resulted in a published joint research article, which you can find on my list of publications (in a few instances, for collaborations currently underway, a paper is not necessarily yet available).  Several of my collaborations have been sustained long-term affairs, leading to a series of joint publications on various topics over several years.  Naturally, I am hopeful that all my collaborations will continue to be fruitful for many years into the future.

Richard Laver, 1942 – 2012

Richard Laver (October 20, 1942 — September 19, 2012).  Richard Joseph Laver, celebrated mathematician, climber, bridge player, chess master, pick-up basketball player, and friend was born in Los Angeles, California to Alma Laver Makinen and Richard Burgess Laver.  Wednesday, September 19, 2012 at 2:52 in the morning in Boulder, Colorado, Rich passed away due to complications of Parkinson’s disease.  He was surrounded by loved ones.

An informal open house gathering for friends, colleagues, and associates will be held Sunday, September 23, 2012 1pm to 5pm at Rich’s house.  A memorial will be held in the more distant future.  (Contact Sheila Miller

Climb into Cantor's attic

Please climb into Cantor’s attic, where you will find infinities of all sizes.  The site aims to be a comprehensive resource for the mathematical logic community, containing information about all mathematical concepts of infinity, including especially detailed information about the large cardinal hierarchy, as well as information about all other prominent specific ordinals and cardinals in mathematical logic and set theory, and how they are related.   We aim that Cantor’s attic will be the definitive on-line home of these various notions.  Please link to us whenever you need to link to a large cardinal or ordinal concept.

Cantor’s attic is the result of a community effort, and you can help improve this resource by joining our community.  We welcome contributions from knowledgeable experts in mathematical logic.  Please come and make a contribution!  You can create new pages, edit existing pages, add references, all using the same mediawiki software that powers wikipedia.  Further information about how to help is available at the Cantor’s attic community portal.

Cantor’s attic was founded in December 2011 by myself and Victoria Gitman.  We have only just begun, and it is a good time to get involved.  Feel free to contact me for advice or specific suggestions about how you might contribute.
