Algebraic gems in discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science
The name "extremal combinatorics" covers many of the most significant discrete developments of recent (and less recent) years, and many of the most interesting open problems. We'll sample some of these, trying to emphasize the wide range of ideas, methods and extra-combinatorial machinery that come into play.
Basic combinatorics/discrete math, basic linear algebra, mathematical maturity
