Workshop Model Theory and Combinatorics 29 January  2 February 2018, IHP
This workshop is part of the
trimester Model Theory,
Combinatorics and Valued fields, to be held at
the Institut Henri Poincaré, in
the amphitheater Hermite, 8 January  6 April 2018. It will concentrate on the combinatorial part of the programme: Additive combinatorics (approximate subgroups and variations); Around Szemerédi Regularity Lemma and Density Theorem; Pseudofinite structures (e.g., ultraproducts of finite structures); VapnikChervonenkis theory, applications, and NIP theories; Continuous model theory; Generalised stability theory and tame structures.
Scientific Committee
Emmanuel Breuillard (Münster/Orsay), Dugald MacPherson (Leeds), Sergei Starchenko (Notre Dame, chair), Frank Wagner (Lyon 1).
This meeting is
sponsored by the ASL and the NSF.
