What is ... Hindman's theorem?

This page hosts information on Peter Krautzberger's talk "What is.. Hindman's theorem?" at the WhatIsSeminar.

Abstract

In the talk I will introduce Hindman's theorem, a result in (infinite) Ramsey theory important for both its content and its historical role. If time allows it, I will try to sketch the proof due to Galvin and Glazer using ultrafilters.

Comments

Very interesting and engaging talk. Nicely done! --Nathan
