DIAMANT Symposium May 2016

On 26 and 27 May 2016 the DIAMANT Symposium will be held at Hotel Van der Valk, Veenendaal, The Netherlands. The venue is at walking distance from railway station Veenendaal-de Klomp.

Invited speakers include: Manjul Bhargava (Princeton University), Damaris Schindler (IAS Princeton), Jens Vygen (University of Bonn), and Jerry Wang (Princeton U).

The Diamant symposium includes a special afternoon (Friday afternoon), featuring Manjul Bhargava and Jerry Wang, about the probability that a random monic polynomial has squarefree discriminant.

Dion Gijswijt and Jordan Ellenberg independently substantially improve capset bound
25-5-2016

A capset in a finite dimensional vector space over the field with 3 elements is a subset that contains no 3-term arithmetic progressions. Dion Gijswijt (TU Delft) and Jordan Ellenberg have independently obtained a bound on the size of a capset that for the first time improves substantially on the trivial bound 3^n. Read more in Terence Tao's blog about these developments.
