Proof Methods in Combinatorics

Keith Frankston, Rutgers University

Location:  GSL
Date & time: Wednesday, 31 January 2018 at 12:10PM - 1:10PM

Abstract:  The container theorem allows us to analyze the independent sets of a hypergraph by collecting each independent set in a small number of containers. This technique has led to many breakthroughs in combinatorics and number theory. Unfortunately, we won't be talking about it today. Instead I'll be presenting proofs of a couple of results each of which display an interesting proof technique.
