About the Project
This project will be supervised by Dr Ivan Tomasic.
Everybody is talking about Tao’s algebraic regularity lemma. In every area of mathematical research, from (algebraic) combinatorics, model theory (logic), number theory and algebraic geometry, researchers are finding new and inventive ways of using it and finding new instances and analogues of it.
In short, Tao’s regularity lemma is a variant of the celebrated Szemeredi’s regularity lemma (which is a result for arbitrary graphs) that works for graphs that can be defined over the so-called pseudofinite fields (or uniformly over finite fields). It says that such a graph can be decomposed into pieces roughly about the same size so that the edges between those pieces behave almost randomly.
