*The PhD Student Research Seminar is an opportunity to share your research progress with your fellow students. Hopefully we will each be more aware of the various research areas in our department, and maybe even find connections that we did not notice before. Works-in-progress and technical presentations are welcome and encouraged. Let's share and get to know our peers! Also there will be cookies.*

"The Pre-Duality Theorem"

We'll see the Pre-Duality Theorem, which says that a necessary condition for a topological structure M' to yield a duality on an algebraic structure M is for the data of M' to satisfy the commutativity/invariance properties seen last week. We'll chug along through the proof as far as we can go.

"Pseudo-finite sets and dimension, Part 3"

In the third part of this reading group, I will discuss the analogy between Szemeredi-Trotter theorem and certain instances of modularity for stable theories. Building on this analogy, I will explain how to derive Elekes-Szabo theorem from Szemeredi-Trotter inequalities, using the group configuration theorem.
