Title: Logic with Probability Quantifiers

Abstract: This talk is based on chapter XIV of Model-Theoretic Logics
(https://projecteuclid.org/euclid.pl/1235417263#toc). I will first give
a brief review of admissible sets and the infinitary logic which is
necessary for probability quantifiers. Then I will present the language
of probability quantifiers, as well as the proof theory, model theory,
and some examples which indicate the expressive power of the language.
Time permitting, my goal is to work towards the main completeness
theorem in section 2.3
