Course/Module description:
Combinatorial geometry is a field that studies combinatorial problems that have some geometric aspect. It was pioneered and developed by Paul Erdos, starting at the beginning of the 20th century. While such problems are often easy to state, some of them are very difficult, have a deep underlying theory, and remain (or have remained) open for many decades.

In the seminar, we will learn fundamental results in the field (such as the Szemeredi-Trotter theorem), some more recent developments, and introduce some of the tools available to attack problems in the field.
