**Hungarian Combinatorics**

Ungar Building Room 402

**Abstract:**

One of the largest branches of combinatorics is the so called "Hungarian style" combinatorics made famous by Hungarian mathematicians such as Paul Erdos. This area of study includes extremal combinatorics (whose questions ask how large a certain structure can be before a certain event occurs) and probabilistic combinatorics (which uses probabilistic methods to show that solutions exist without giving explicit constructions). In this talk I will explore several topics of study in Hungarian combinatorics such as Ramsey theory, extremal graph theory, and forbidden configurations.
