Colloquium
Applications of Flag Algebras in Hypercubes and Permutations
Bernard Lidicky, The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Contact: Dwight Duffus, dwight@mathcs.emory.edu
Venue: Mathematics and Science Center, Room W303
Flag algebras provide a method, recently developed by Razborov, designed for attacking problems in extremal graph theory. There are recent applications of the method also in discrete geometry or permutation patterns. The aim of talk is to give a gentle introduction to the method and show some of its applications to hypercubes and permutations. The talk is based on joint work with J. Balogh, P. Hu, H. Liu, O. Pikhurko, B. Udvari, and J. Volec.
