Regularity and Analytic Methods in Combinatorics

The school will cover three interlinked discrete mathematics topics with computer science applications, which all saw exciting developments in the last few years: the Regularity Method, Limits of Combinatorial Structures, and Property Testing.

The three main lecture course topics are:

• Regularity Method (David Conlon, Oxford) 

• Limits of Combinatorial Structures (Christian Borgs and Henry Cohn, Microsoft) 

• Property Testing (Asaf Shapira, Tel-Aviv).

These lecture courses will be supplemented by tutorial sessions. 

The school will also include three more generally focused talks given by:

Noga Alon (Tel Aviv)

Christian Borgs (Microsoft)

Ben Green (Oxford)

The school is collocated with the 25th British Combinatorial Conference.

 

All research students will be charged a registration fee of £150.  There will be no charge for subsistence costs.

All early career researchers will be charged a registration fee of £200.  There will be no charge for subsistence costs.

All other participants (e.g. those working in industry) will be charged a registration fee of £250 plus the full subsistence costs (£340) £590 in total.

All UK-based participants must pay their own travel costs.  For overseas-based participants, some support will be available to contribute towards travel costs.  

Fees are not payable until a place on the course is offered but will be due by 6 May 2015.

Diophantine equations

The course will give an overview of the existing methods for investigating integer and rational solutions to Diophantine equations. It will include both the algebraic, analytic and model theory aspects of the subject. The course will take the format of three 6-hour mini-courses, supported by exercise classes. The three mini-courses are:

1. Rational Points.

A. Rational points on curves. Michael Stoll (Bremen)

B. Higher-dimensional varieties. Alexei Skorobogatov (Imperial)

2. Integral Points.

A. Basic methods and solubility. Jennifer Park (McGill)

B. Analytic methods. Trevor Wooley (Bristol)

3. Elliptic and modular curves.

A. Elliptic curves. Tim and Vladimir Dokchitser

B. Modularity. Andrew Granville (Montreal/UCL)

 

All research students and early career researchers will be charged a registration fee of £150. There will be no charge for subsistence costs.

All other participants (e.g. those working in industry) will be charged a registration fee of £250 plus the full subsistence costs (£250), £500 in total.

All UK-based participants must pay their own travel costs.  For overseas-based participants, support will be available to contribute towards travel costs.  

Fees are not payable until a place on the course is offered but will be due by 15 August 2015.
