An elementary embeddings characterization of Ramsey cardinals

The City University of New York

A cardinal $\kappa$ is Ramsey if every coloring of the finite subsets of $\kappa$ in two colors has a homogeneous set of size $\kappa$. In this talk, I will motivate and prove some basics facts about the little known but very elegant and useful elementary embeddings characterization of Ramsey cardinals.
