Laver tables and large cardinals
Forte Shinko, Department of Mathematics, Caltech,

The Laver table L_n is a particular self-distributive algebra on 2^n elements, with many interesting properties. Surprisingly, certain properties of Laver tables can be deduced by assuming very strong set-theoretical axioms, called large cardinals. We will investigate this interaction, along with connections to orderability of the braid group.
