This workshop is organized as a special event "Winter School for Combinatorics".

  • Date: February 21-22 (Thu-Fri), 2019
  • Venue: Room 1503 KIAS, Seoul

  • 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

      • Schedule 
        Feb 21, 2 pm ~ Feb 22, 3 pm (detailed schedule will be announced later)
