Mathematics Colloquium

Graphs, Vectors and Integers

Speaker: Noga Alon, Tel Aviv University and Institute for Advanced Study

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 1302

Date: Monday, October 19, 2015, 3:45 p.m.


The study of Cayley graphs of finite groups is related to the investigation of pseudo-random graphs and to problems in Combinatorial Number Theory, Geometry and Information Theory. I will discuss this topic, describing the motivation and focusing on several results that illustrate the interplay between Graph Theory, Geometry and Number Theory.
