  • Topics of the Lectures:
    • In these lectures, we give an introduction to discrete geometry. Our goal is to reach some key results in the field by combining methods from linear algebra, topology, and probability.
       

      Lecture 1: Introduction of basic concepts and the Erdos-Szekeres polygon problem

      Lecture 2: Incidence problems

      Lecture 3: Geometric selection theorems and intersection patterns of convex sets

      Lecture 4: Counting k-sets and other open problems
