Features and technical details
This volume collects together research and survey papers written by invited speakers of the conference celebrating the 70th birthday of LÃ¡szlÃ³ LovÃ¡sz. The topics covered include classical subjects such as extremal graph theory, coding theory, design theory, applications of linear algebra and combinatorial optimization, as well as recent trends such as extensions of graph limits, online or statistical versions of classical combinatorial problems, and new methods of derandomization. LÃ¡szlÃ³ LovÃ¡sz is one of the pioneers in the interplay between discrete and continuous mathematics, and is a master at establishing unexpected connections, âbuilding bridgesâ between seemingly distant fields. His invariably elegant and powerful ideas have produced new subfields in many areas, and his outstanding scientific work has defined and shaped many research directions in the last 50 years. The 14 contributions presented in this volume, all of which are connected to LÃ¡szlÃ³ LovÃ¡sz's areas of research, offer an excellent overview of the state of the art of combinatorics and related topics and will be of interest to experienced specialists as well as young researchers.
