PAlmetto Number Theory Series XXIV
Misceallenous, Misceallenous
Contact: David Zureick-Brown, dzb@mathcs.emory.edu
Venue: Mathematics and Science Center, Room W201
The Palmetto Number Theory Series (PANTS) is a series of number theory meetings held at colleges and universities in South Carolina, the Palmetto State, as well as neighboring states. The conference will last until Sunday afternoon. \\ The goal of the PANTS meetings is to provide an opportunity for number theorists in South Carolina, and more generally, in the Southeast, to hear about recent research in all areas of number theory, pure and applied. \\ See http://www.mathcs.emory.edu/pantsxxiv/ for more details.

Tiling with Arbitrary Tiles
Imre Leader, The University of Cambridge
Contact: Dwight Duffus, Dwight@mathcs.emory.edu
Venue: Mathematics and Science Center, Room W301
A {\it tile} is a finite subset $T$ of $\mathbb{Z}^n$. It may or may not tile $\mathbb{Z}^n$, in the sense of $\mathbb{Z}^n$ having a partition into copies of $T$. However, Chalcraft conjectured that every $T$A does tile $\mathbb{Z}^d$ for some $d$. In this talk, we will discuss some examples, and also a proof of the conjecture, recently obtained in joint work with Vytautas Gruslys and Ta Sheng Tan.

On Turan Problems for Weakly Quasirandom 3-uniform Hypergraphs
Christian Reiher, University Hamburg
Contact: Vojtech Rodl, Rodl@mathcs.emory.edu
Venue: Mathematics and Science Center, Room W301
In recent work, we found a new proof of a conjecture due to Erdös and Sós stating that large weakly quasirandom 3-uniform hypergraphs with density greater than 1/4 contain four vertices spanning at least three hyperedges. This was proved earlier by Glebov, Kral, and Volec using flag algebras and computers. The new proof is based on the hypergraph regularity method and gave rise to further developments some of which are surveyed in this talk. This is joint work with Vojtech Rodl and Mathias Schacht.
