M2027: Ramsey Theory in Splash! 2008 (Nov. 22 - 23, 2008)
Ramsey theory asks when certain simple structures are guaranteed to be found in large complicated ones. For example, if you color the integers red and blue, will there be any long arithmetic progressions of just one color? If there are a lot of people at a party, will some large number of them all know one another, or all not know one another? We'll look at some questions like this mathematically, with an emphasis on interaction and mathematical exploration.
