SPEAKER: Elvira Mayordomo - University of Zaragoza

Extending the reach of the point-to-set principle

The point-to-set principle of J. Lutz and N. Lutz (2018) has recently enabled the theory of computing to be used to answer open questions about fractal geometry in Euclidean spaces ℝn. These are classical questions whose statements do not involve computation or related aspects of logic.

I will present the generalization of the point-to-set principle from Euclidean spaces to arbitrary separable metric spaces and to a large class of gauge families.

Then I will demonstrate the power of our extended point-to-set principle by using it to prove new theorems about classical fractal dimensions in hyperspaces.

(The results presented are joint work with Jack Lutz and Neil Lutz).
