Measurability, Ergodic Theory and Combinatorics

8-12 July 2019

Organisers: Miklós Abért, Tim Austin, András Máthé and Oleg Pikhurko

There are a number of deep and fruitful connections between combinatorics on one side and limits of discrete structures, descriptive set theory, orbit equivalence, measured group theory and ergodic theory on the other side. The aim of this exploratory workshop is to overview such known interactions and identify new promising directions.

Confirmed Speakers

Talks

Talks will be by invitation only.

Registration

The registration fee is £125 (including lunches Mon-Fri, and dinners Mon-Thurs) or £50 (including lunches only). It is waived for invited speakers, Warwick participants, and mathematicians who are retired or are on a career break. Please register here and, if you have to pay the fee, call Ruth Penny at +44-2476528317 to pay by a card, with 6 June 2019 being the deadline for both.

Accommodation

If you are interested in booking accommodation on the campus, please contact Ruth Penny as early as possible (as hotels on the campus are usually in very high demand that time of year). Alternatively, you can book accommodation yourself (with Coventry, Kenilworth, and Leamington Spa being the most convenient towns for getting to the campus by public transport).

Funding

Thanks to an LMS grant, we have some funding for

  • research students (of any nationality) that study in the UK, and
  • one participant from any country listed here (under Priorities 1-5).

In order to apply, please email your CV and up to 3 of your best papers to Oleg Pikhurko by 1 April 2019. If you do not have any preprints, then instead please arrange that one recommendation letter (e.g. by your PhD advisor) is emailed directly to Oleg Pikhurko by 1 April 2019. Funding decisions will be made shortly after the deadline.

Venue

All talks, coffee breaks and lunches will be in the Zeeman Building that hosts Warwick's Mathematics Institute. Directions to the Institute can be found here.

Queries

For practical queries (accommodation, registration, etc), please contact Ruth Penny. For scientific and funding queries, please contact Oleg Pikhurko.
