Special Year on Graph Theory and Combinatorial Optimization
Mini-symposium on Extremal Graph Theory
March 13 to 16, 2000
Extremal graph theory and extremal hypergraph theory are core areas of combinatorics. Extremal graph theory was basically started by Turán and was influenced greatly by the results of Paul Erdös: in fact, it was among his favorite fields. Both areas, especially the theory of hypergraphs, have developed considerably since the publication of Bollobás' excellent monograph "Extremal graph theory" (1978).
In this miniseries we are going to review the basics of Turán theory and point out connections to coding theory and other fields. Several open problems will be discussed during the lectures and in the afternoon seminars.
