Manchester Building (Hall 2), Hebrew University Jerusalem
I will discuss some recent advances in combinatorics, among them the disproof of Hedetniemi conjecture by Shitov, the proof of the sensitivity conjecture by Huang, the progress on the Erdos-Rado sunflower conjecture by Alweiss, Lovett, Wu, and Zhang, and the progress on the expectation threshold conjecture by Frankston, Kahn, Narayanan, and Park.
