Summer School 2023

Frontiers of Combinatorics - July 17 - July 28 


We are organizing an in-person summer school, with the first part held in IBS, Daejeon. The first part is given by Wojtek Samotij from Tel Aviv Univ, Israel, from July 17 to 21, on hypergraph containers, which is one of big breakthroughs in combinatorics in the past 10 years.
If you are interested, please register on the site. Please note that we are having only the first part at IBS and so book only the visit till July 21. 


Part 1 (July 17- July 21)

9:00-10:30 am (Beijing) / 10:00 - 11:30 am (Seoul)

Zoom number : 346 934 4087 Password :202307

Offline : Institute for Basic Science (IBS), Daejeon, Korea (Room: IBS Science  Culture Center (기초과학연구원 과학문화센터), S221 (2nd floor))

Title : The method of hypergraph containers

Speaker : Wojciech Samotij (Tel Aviv University, Israel)

Abstract : Since the late eighties, there has been considerable interest in analogues of classical results in extremal combinatorics and Ramsey theory relative to random graphs and other discrete structures. Results of this kind had been proved using mostly ad-hoc methods until about ten years ago, when three general, powerful methods were developed and used to solve many outstanding questions in the area. In this course, I will present one of these methods and show how to apply it to a number of 'real-life' problems.



Part 2 (July 24- July 28)

9:00- 10:30 am (Beijing) / 10:00 - 11:30 am (Seoul)

Zoom number : 346 934 4087 Password :202307

Offline : Dongmingzhu Building 212, Shandong University, Jinan, China

Title : Graph limits and flag algebras

Speaker : Andrzej Grzesik (Jagiellonian University, Poland)

Speaker :  The mini-course will be focused on the flag algebra method that changed the landscape of extremal combinatorics and was used to solve or make substantial progress on many longstanding open problems. We will begin with an intuitive introduction to limits of dense graph sequences and the notion of a graphon. Then we will learn how the flag algebra method works and how to apply it to different extremal graph theory questions.
