Title: Fraisse Structures and Randomness

Abstract: In this talk, we'll explore a number of cool structures called Fraisse structures. Roughly speaking, these structures are exactly those structures which are uniquely determined by their finite components. Time permitting, we will also see how in some settings, random constructions almost surely yield Fraisse structures.
