### 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

Abstract:

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.
