Set Theory as was quickly recognised by David Hilbert more than 100 years ago, plays a fundamental foundational role in the intellectual underpinning of pure mathematics. Cantor's work on cardinality and wellorderings was seen to establish several basic areas of research whose threads we discern today and indeed will be emphasised in this conference: on the arithmetic of cardinal numbers themselves, and on the 'descriptive set theory' that seeks to analyse the logical complexity of sets definable within mathematical language. Cantor's work derived from his study of trigonometric series, and modern set theory goes back to classical analysis as well as to modern Banach space theory, abstract algebra, ergodic theory, and dynamical systems to find fruitful applications.
