Abstract

Organisers: Hilary Priestley, Drew Moshier and Leo Cabrer.

This will be devoted to the applications of dualities to logic and algebra, focusing on general techniques. Thus it will seek to complement the specialised coverage in meetings devoted to, for example, modal logic, residuated structures and many-valued logics, or coalgebras. The featured topics for the Workshop will be drawn from completions of ordered structures, and applications; admissible rules, unification theory, interpolation and amalgamation; aspects of many-valued and substructural logics and ordered algebraic structures. Keynote speakers will be Leo Cabrer and Mai Gehrke.

Abstract
Joint work with: Sina Greenwood, Brian Raines and Casey Sherman Abstract: We say a space $X$ with property $\C P$ is \emph{universal} for orbit spectra of homeomorphisms with property $\C P$ provided that if $Y$ is any space with property $\C P$ and the same cardinality as $X$ and $h:Y\to Y$ is any (auto)homeomorphism then there is a homeomorphism$g:X\to X$ such that the orbit equivalence classes for $h$ and $g$ are isomorphic. We construct a compact metric space $X$ that is universal for homeomorphisms of compact metric spaces of cardinality the continuum. There is no universal space for countable compact metric spaces. In the presence of some set theoretic assumptions we also give a separable metric space of size continuum that is universal for homeomorphisms on separable metric spaces.
