About

The conference Set-theoretic methods in topology and real functions theory, dedicated to 80th birthday of Lev Bukovský takes place on September 9-13, 2019 in Košice, Slovakia.

The registration of participants with a welcome reception starts Sunday, September 8, evening.

The conference will take place at the Socrates building of the Faculty of Arts and at the area of Rectorate of Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice, Moyzesova 9 and Šrobárova 2, Košice.

Lev Bukovský was a member of the Prague set theoretical seminar led by Peter Vopĕnka back in the 60s of the 20th century. The Bukovský-Hechler formula and the recursive formulas for cardinal exponentiation using the gimel function appears among his work in that period.

The end of the 60s marks the beginning of his contribution to the newly founded mathematical institute at the Faculty of Science of Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice. Influencing the progress of mathematics in Košice became his destiny for the rest of his career and even nowadays he plays a crucial consultory role in the developement of the institute.

His research in the 70s and 80s is devoted mainly to the set-theoretical models and associated generic extensions. Around that time his interest turns also to the studies of the real line using cardinal invariants. The 90s are the beginning of his contributions to the theory of singular sets and selection principles studies. In 2011, the monography The Structure of the Real Line is published.


The conference is supported by the Visegrad Fund and the university grant PCOV VVGS.
