Andrey Kupavskii "Random restrictions and forbidden intersections"
|Big Seminar Zoom|
Random restrictions is a powerful tool that played a central role in the breakthrough result by Alweiss et al. on the famous Erdos-Rado sunflower conjecture. In this talk, I will describe a new approach to getting a junta-type approximation for families of sets based on random restrictions. Such approximations have several exciting consequences, and I will present a couple of them. The first one is an upper bound on the size of regular k-uniform intersecting families similar to the one obtained by Ellis, Kalai and Narayanan for intersecting families under a much stronger restriction of being transitive. The second one is significant progress on the t-intersection (and the Erdos-Sos forbidden one intersection) problem for permutations. Improving and simplifying previous results, we show that the largest family of permutations [n] -> [n] avoiding pairs of permutations with intersection exactly t-1, has size at most (n-t)!, for t polynomial in n. Previously, this was only known for fixed t.

Upcoming talk on Big Seminar:
We are the Laboratory of Combinatorial and Geometric Structures at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. On this website, you can learn about Lab activities and members, as well as related events and useful materials like past and future workshops, talks, and video lectures. The lab aims to initiate collaboration and exchange between foreign and Russian researchers who work on different theoretical questions in the fields of Combinatorics, Discrete and Computational Geometry, and Theoretical Сomputer Science, and it was formed in December 2019.
Former head of the laboratory: Prof. János Pach
Head: Dr. Andrey Kupavskii
Vice-head: Dr. Alexandr Polyanskii
