Workshop "ULTRA-COMBINATORICS", Application of ultrafilters in combinatorial number theory, and related topics

Jan 24 2013 - 00:00
Jan 25 2013 - 18:00
Venue: 

CRM - Centro di Ricerca Matematica "E. De Giorgi", Pisa (Italy)

Short description of the event: 

This workshop aims to bring together European researchers interested in the applications of ultrafilters in combinatorics of numbers, and related topics. The talks will present recent results in this area and provide an updated overview of the subject. The main goal of this meeting is to disseminate information about the various techniques related to the use of ultrafilters (including algebra in the space betaN and nonstandard analysis) and their potential to attack open problems in Ramsey theory and number theory.

Scientific Committee:
Imre Leader (Univ. Cambridge, UK); Dona Strauss (Univ. Leeds, UK)
Mauro Di Nasso (Univ. Pisa, Italy).

Organization:
CRM - Centro di Ricerca Matematica "E. De Giorgi"
