### Mini Course: "Edge colouring of multigraphs and the Tashkinov trees method"

Schedule: Introduction: Mon Oct 25 14:15-15:15 Lecture 1: Tues Oct 26 14:00-15:30 Lecture 2: Thurs Oct 28 8:30-10:00 Lecture 3: Thurs Oct 28 10:30-12:00 Lecture 4: Fri Oct 29 10:30-12:00 Program: In this course we will study edge colouring in multigraphs, with an emphasis on the method of Tashkinov trees . A sophisticated generalization of the method of alternating paths, this technique was introduced by Tashkinov to address questions such as the Goldberg-Seymour problem. In particular we will see the theorem of Tashkinov that forms the foundation of the method, and how to apply it to obtain some of the many important results for multigraph edge colouring for which it has been used. Moreover, these applications typically come with efficient algorithms, since the proof of Tashkinov's Theorem is algorithmic. All are welcome to attend. No prior knowledge of edge colouring will be assumed. Detailed description of the program . If you are planning to participate, please send a note to: i.brunke@fu-berlin.de .

### Problem-Solving Workshop at Kloster Chorin

We will work together on selected problems of Geometric Algorithms in small groups. The location will be the Infirmarium of Kloster Chorin , northeast of Berlin. The purpose of the workshop is to develop problem-solving skills by working on problems in small teams. The problems will be elementary in the sense that they don't require much prior knowledge.

Location: Infirmarium, Kloster Chorin, Amt Chorin 11a, 16230 Chorin

### 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.

Location: Gutshof Sauen 70 km SE of Berlin

### 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.

Location: Freie Universität Berlin Institut für Mathematik Arnimallee 3 (Room 001) 14195 Berlin
