Combinatorics: Gil kalai (HU) "Algebraic-topological invariants of hypergraphs and extremal combinatorics"

Speaker: Gil Kalai, HU
Title: Algebraic-topological invariants of hypergraphs and extremal combinatorics
Abstract:
We will discuss some algebraic invariants of hypergraphs and some connection to algebraic topology. We will present some conjectural (rather speculative) relations with two central problems in extremal combinatorics: The Turan (4,3) conjecture and the Erdos-Rado sunflower conjecture.
