"Uncollapsed Hrushovski constructions"
Hrushovski constructions have been used to construct many counterexamples in model theory, and also have interactions with combinatorics. In their uncollapsed, infinite rank form, they are very similar to the classical Fraisse limits. I will go through the basic properties of uncollapsed Hrushovski constructions, following David Evan's note "An introduction to ampleness".
