"But yet mathematical certainty is, after all, something insufferable. Twice two makes four seems to me simply a piece of insolence. Twice two makes four is a pert coxcomb who stands with arms akimbo barring your path and spitting. I admit that twice two makes four is an excellent thing, but if we are to give everything its due, twice two makes five is sometimes a very charming thing too."

-Fyodor Dostoyevsky, "Notes from the Underground"

I have just ended a postdoc at Masaryk University, during which I have been collaborating with Prof. Jiří Rosický on several ongoing projects which involve scrabbling around in the margins between abstract model theory (AECs, mostly) and categorical model theory (accessible categories, mostly), and pulling concepts and results from each to the other. See the links at the left for more information.

Please note that beginning September 1st, I will be employed full-time at Department of Mathematics at the Brno University of Technology.

Česká verze: Jmenuji se Michael Lieberman. Jsem puvodně ze Spojených států, ale v Brně bydlím už pět let, pořád pracuji jako vědecký pracovník na přírodovědecké fakultě Masarykovy Univerzity. Od 1.9. budu pracovat na VUT v Brně na plný úvazek. Zajímám se převážně o matematickou logiku a o abstraktní teorii modelů.
