Geometric, Topological and Computational Aspects of High-Dimensional Combinatorics

Group Conference

Event date: April 22 - April 26, 2018

    Alexander Lubotzky (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem )



    Combinatorics in general and the theory of expander graphs in particular, have been fruitful areas of interaction between 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.
