Colloquium: Tuesday, May 14, 2019. Speaker: Ron Holzman (Technion). Title: “On partitions of a box into sub-boxes”.

Place: Room 614 in the Education & Sciences Building

Time: 14:00


We prove two theorems on the minimum number of sub-boxes in a partition of a box satisfying certain constraints. One is an old joint result with Alon, Bohman and Kleitman, the other is new. The proofs use tricks from probability and linear algebra, respectively.

Tea will be served before the talk (at 13:50).
