An Improved Exponential-time Algorithm for k CNF Satisfiability
In recent years new and important connections have emerged between discrete subgroups of Lie groups, automorphic forms and arithmetic on the one hand, and questions in discrete mathematics, combinatorics, and graph theory on the other. One of the first examples of this interaction was the explicit construction of expanders (regular graphs with a high degree of connectedness) via Kazhdan's property T or via Selberg's theorem (lambda1 is greater than 3/16).

During the academic year 2006-07, the School of Mathematics will have a special program on algebraic geometry. We don't want to focus on any single aspect, but rather aim to have many flavors of algebraic geometry and its applications represented, including (not exhaustive list) cohomology theories, motives, moduli spaces, Shimura varieties, complex or p-adic analytic methods and singularities.
During the 2007-08 academic year, Roman Bezrukavnikov of MIT will lead a special program on algebraic geometry and physics in representation theory.
The activity in Combinatorics and Theoretical Computer Science at the Institute for Advanced Study will resume on Monday, September 29.
It will take place on Mondays, and will include:
The Combinatorics and Complexity Theory Seminar - Mondays 11 am, starting September 29.
A mini-course on Computational Pseudo-Randomness- Mondays 2 pm, starting October 6
Mini Conference December 10-12th
During term I of the year, School faculty member Jean Bourgain and Van Vu of Rutgers University will lead a program on arithmetic combinatorics. The following is preliminary information about the program.
