Descriptive Set Theory
by David Marker
Publisher: University of Illinois at Chicago 2002
Number of pages: 105
These are informal notes for a course in Descriptive Set Theory given at the University of Illinois at Chicago in Fall 2002. While I hope to give a fairly broad survey of the subject we will be concentrating on problems about group actions, particularly those motivated by Vaught's conjecture.

This monograph develops Descriptive Set Theory from its classical roots to the modern 'effective' theory. The book emphasizes the foundations of the subject, and it sets the stage for the dramatic results established since the 1980s.
