[DMANET] Oxford Combinatorics Meeting

One-Day Meeting in Combinatorics at Oxford

A One-Day Meeting in Combinatorics will be held in Oxford on Wednesday 17
March 2010. The meeting will take place in the Mathematical Institute,
with talks starting at 11am and coffee available beforehand from 10.30am.

The speakers are:

Mark Jerrum (QMUL)

gadgets and computational complexity

David Gamarnik (MIT)
A combinatorial approach to the interpolation method and scaling
limits in sparse random graphs

Benny Sudakov (UCLA)
Ramsey numbers of graphs and hypergraphs

Günter M. Ziegler (Berlin)
Some centrally-symmetric polytopes derived from perfect graphs

Adrian Bondy (Lyon)
