Misha Lavrov Carnegie Mellon University Title: Ramsey Theorems About Coloring Lattices Abstract: Though Ramsey theory could be summarized as "a bunch of consequences of the Pigeonhole Principle", the thing that really makes Ramsey theory a field rather than a collection of theorems is the large web of reductions that tie different problems together. This talk will explore a part of this web by looking at a few Ramsey results about highdimensional lattices. We will also prove a theorem about tictactoe.
