Abstract: Combinatorics is a fundamental discipline of modern mathematics which studies discrete objects and their properties. This minisymposium we propose will focus on the subfield of extremal and probabilistic combinatorics, which has witnessed an exciting development over the past decades, and also has many striking practical applications in mathematical optimization, computer science, statistical physics and voting society. We aim to bring the top researchers to the minisymposium, where they will present the recent progress, discuss open challenges, exchange research ideas, and initiate new collaborations. We expect a minisymposium of this nature to have a lasting impact on the future of the subject.
