Carnegie Mellon University
Title: Amenability and Ramsey Theory

Abstract: In this talk, we'll define what it means for a countably infinite group to be amenable. We'll connect this phenomenon to solving seemingly unrelated finite "puzzles." Along the way, we'll need to make a pit-stop to talk about the Hahn-Banach theorem and linear alternatives.
