Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Breaking symmetries of infinite graphs Other events...
Abstract:

Symmetry breaking involves colouring the elements of a combinatorial structure so that the resulting structure has no nontrivial symmetries. In this talk I'll give an introduction to symmetry breaking, with a particular focus on infinite graphs. I'll also discuss a number of research directions that are opening up. Along the way I'll highlight some of the interesting open questions and conjectures that are being worked upon.

Many of these problems relate to very deep problems in group theory, but I'll try to make the group theory as accessible as possible.
