The following are readings, suggested by some of the speakers.
Computability of Julia sets:
Survey papers on algortihmic randomness:
- Downey, Five lectures on algorithmic randomness, published in "Computational Prospects of Infinity", Lecture Notes Series of the Institute for Mathematical Sciences, NUS, vol. 14, World Scientific (2008).
- Downey, Algorithmic randomness and computability, proceedings of the International Congress of Mathematicians, Beijing, 2008.
- Downey, Algorithmic randomness and computability, slides from a talk at the ICM, Beijing, 2006.
Descriptive set theory and its interaction with analysis and dynamical systems:
The audience is encouraged to familiarise themselves with basic notions of descriptive set theory, such as Borel and analytic sets; and with the basics of model theory, in particular with Fraisse limits. Among the possible sources are
- Kechris, Classical Descriptive Set Theory (Springer, 1995)
- Hodges, Model Theory (Cambridge UP, 1993)
