Seminar (Algebraic Methods in Combinatorics) (Summer Semester 2019)

Algebraic methods in combinatorics cover a wide range of topics and techniques from abstract and linear algebra applicable to problems in combinatorics, discrete geometry, extremal set theory, and number theory. During this seminar we shall go through several such results. The basic text we shall follow will be the lecture notes by Prof. B. Sudakov.

Each participant is assigned a section in the notes and the date for the presentation. Participants are expected to attend all the meetings, actively listen and ask questions, provide feedback, and give a nice own presentation.
