Seminar (Extremal Set Theory) (Summer Semester 2024)

This seminar is an introduction to extremal set theory - a fast-growing field of discrete mathematics that investigates questions of the following type: if we have a collection of sets satisfying certain restrictions, how large or how small can it be? For example, if any two sets in a collection of subsets of an n-element set intersect non-trivially, one can determine the largest number of sets in such a collection exactly. The seminar will be based on selected chapters of the book "Extremal Combinatorics" by Stasys Jukna and additional literature.

This course is organized on ILIAS. You can join the course here:
