Geometric,Topological and Computational Aspects of High-Dimensional Combinatorics


September 1, 2017- July 1, 2018


Organizers: Alexander Lubotzky and Tali Kaufman


Combinatorics in general and the theory of expander graphs, in particular, have been fruitful areas of interaction of pure and applied mathematics. In recent years a "high dimensional" theory has emerged. This theory, aside from its intellectual interest, also has great potential for various applications in mathematics and computer science. This theory calls for a collaboration of experts in combinatorics, topology, geometry, group theory and computer science. We propose to organize a program that will bring together people from these areas in order to create a community of scholars who can collaborate on these new challenges.
