Math 223D - Fall 2017 "Borel Graph combinatorics"


Instructor: Andrew Marks

Meetings: MWF from 12-12:50pm in MS 5117.

We'll survey the theory of Borel graph combinatorics. Topics will include:

We will partially follow the survey paper "Descriptive graph combinatorics" by Kechris and Marks: http://math.ucla.edu/~marks/papers/combinatorics16.pdf

Prerequisites: Basic analysis/descriptive set theory: standard Borel spaces/standard probability spaces, Borel sets and functions, and Baire category. A good reference for these topics is Kechris's book: Classical Descriptive Set Theory
