Block Course in Extremal Combinatorics in Random Discrete Structures, will be held on February 27 - March 23 at Free University Berlin


http://www3.math.tu-berlin.de/MDS/blockcourse12.html


TOPICS AND LECTURERS:

1. Extremal Combinatorics and the Probabilistic Method -- an Introduction (Tibor Szabo, FU Berlin)
2. Multiple Round Exposure in Random Structures (Mathias Schacht, University of Hamburg)
3. Transference Principles (David Conlon, University of Oxford)

PROGRAM:

Lectures: Mon-Fri 09:00--12:00
Exercises: Tue-Fri, 16:00-18:00

February 27-March 2: Tibor Szabo
March 5-9: Mathias Schacht
March 12-16: Mathias Schacht/David Conlon
March 19-23: David Conlon

----------------------------
AUDIENCE:

The course is addressed to graduate students and postdocs of Mathematics or Computer Science, who are interested in extremal combinatorics, the theory of random graphs, probabilistic methods and related fields.

--------------------------
FORMAT:

A typical day will consist of a morning lecture (9:00-12:00) and an exercise session in the afternoon (16:00-18:00).
The exercises are to be solved in small groups in the afternoon and will later be discussed in the exercise session.
The language of the course is English.
