Graduate colloquium (Aspen Central 018, F 2-3p, N. Dobrinen)

The colloquium is intended for student reports concerning their current research, and for faculty and visitors' lectures on introductory topics. The colloquium is regularly followed by a tea.

May 30 Gabor Lippner (Harvard University)
Measurable graph theory

Abstract: Studying graphs whose vertex set is a measure space poses new and exciting challenges that connect analysis and discrete mathematics. In this talk I will give an introduction to the topic, mention recent developments, and outline connections to property testing and constant query complexity algorithms.
