DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Shoham Letzter\nhosted by Uli Wagner\nAbstract: Extrem
al combinatorics deals with the class of problems that ask to determine th
e maximum\, or minimum\, possible size of a collection of finite objects w
ith certain properties. This is a central branch of combinatorics that has
seen impressive growth in recent years\, many of whose problems arise nat
urally in various fields in mathematics and elsewhere.In this talk I will
discuss classical results\, recent developments\, and interesting open pro
blems in the area of extremal combinatorics. In particular\, I will focus
on Ramsey theory\, whose underlying philosophy can be described as showing
that complete disorder is impossible'. I will then move on to extremal gr
aph theory and extremal set theory\, where the objects of study are graphs
and set systems\, respectively.
