Alexander Fink: Minicourse: Algebraic geometry for matroids

I anticipate discussing topics such as my work with Speyer on constructing the Tutte polynomial from torus orbits on a Grassmannian, the "Hodge package" techniques used by Adiprasito, Huh and Katz to prove their log-concavity result, and hyperfields and their Grassmannians. More precise schedules will be posted as the lectures draw nearer. This minicourse will take place on:  Monday 22 October - 10:00 am to 12:00 pm Wednesday 24 October - 10:00 am to 12:00 pm Monday 12 November - 10:00 am to 12:00 pm Wednesday 14 November - 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Fall School: Order and Geometry (September 14 - 17, 2018)

The school is addressed to advanced undergraduate and graduate students of Mathematics or Computer Science with interest in Discrete Mathematics and in particular in Partially Ordered Sets and Discrete Geometry. Basic knowledge in discrete mathematics is assumed. The fall school consists of four introductory courses. Each course consists of lectures and exercises.

Geometric Graph Workshop 2018 (GG-Week)

This is a research workshop where we discuss various problem in groups. The workshop series started as the European Workshop on Pseudotriangulations, and it has been held in different locations. It has broadened its subject area to geometric graphs in general.

Location: Haus Tornow am See, 50 km from Berlin

Berlin-Poznań-Hamburg Seminar on Combinatorics and Algorithms

This seminar was started by Prof. Michał Karoński from the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań and by Prof. Hans Jürgen Prömel (at the time) from Humboldt University of Berlin in the mid 1990's. The event alternates between Berlin, Poznań and (more recently) Hamburg, covering a wide variety of topics in extremal and probabilistic combinatorics, algorithmic discrete mathematics, as well as related fields. This year it takes place on June 8 and 9 at the Free University of Berlin.
