The Midwest Computability Seminar is a joint venture between the University of Chicago, the University of Notre Dame, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It meets once or twice per semester at the University of Chicago, and is attended by faculty and students from these universities and others in the area. The seminar started in the fall of 2008.

Title: Computability and Banach-Mazur games

Abstract: We'll look at some questions around Banach-Mazur games. On the pure computability-theoretic side, after establishing the effectiveness of some basic facts about Banach-Mazur games we classify the functions computable from all winning strategies for some Banach-Mazur game as exactly the hyperarithmetic sets, using an analogue of Hechler forcing for building strategies. On the reverse mathematical side, we parallel this by showing that Borel Banach-Mazur determinacy is equivalent to ATR

Title: Effective dimension of points on lines

Abstract: This talk will cover recent work using Kolmogorov complexity to study the dimension of points on lines in the Euclidean plane and its application to important questions in fractal geometry. In particular, we will show that this work strengthens the lower bounds of the dimension of Furstenberg sets. We will also discuss future research and open problems in this area. This talk is based on joint work with Neil Lutz.

Title: C.e. equivalence relations and the linear orders they realize

Abstract: Quotient structures are well studied. In the case of linear orders, it is known that the order-types realized by c.e. quotient structures are precisely those realized by Δ
