Dr. Ari Brodsky

I received my PhD from the University of Toronto, specializing in set theory.  Since then I have researched at Bar-Ilan University and Ariel University as a post-doctoral fellow, and I have lectured at Bar-Ilan as well.  My research interests include various branches within combinatorial set theory, including:  infinite trees, the Souslin problem and its generalizations; Jensen's diamond principle and its applications; Ramsey theory - partition relations for cardinals, ordinals, trees, and partial orders.  I have also written on model theory - abstract elementary classes, and on the mathematical structure of the Jewish calendar
