DIMACS - Graduate Student Combinatorics Seminar

Title: Homogeneity, Amalgamation, and Classifying Homogeneous Structures of n Linear Orders

Speaker: Sam Braunfeld, Rutgers University

Date: Wednesday, February 3, 2016 12:10pm

Location: Graduate Student Lounge, 7th Floor, Hill Center, Rutgers University, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ


This talk will introduce homogeneous structures, which have an extremely transitive automorphism group, and Fraisse's theory connecting them to amalgamation classes, which are classes of finite structures satisfying a simple combinatorial property. Remaining time will be spent discussing recent results in the direction of classifying the homogeneous structures of n linear orders.
