Title: Hindman's Theorem Again

Abstract: In this talk, I will revisit Hindman's theorem, which we all remember from about a month ago, from a combinatorial point of view. I will prove a few finite and infinite variants of Hindman's theorem, and end with a proof of the theorem that is too set-theoretical for my taste, and probably too combinatorial for set theorists. I will also briefly touch upon the question of whether the natural numbers begin with 0 or 1.
