Ramanujan Mathematical Society is holding its 26th annual
meeting at Allahabad during 27th September - 5th October, 2011. There
will be two workshops and followed by a conference. Workshops will be
held at Harish-Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad (during the period

will be held at the university of Allahabad (during 2-5 October, 2011).

There will be two workshops on (1) Additive Combinatorics (2) Recent
trends in Probability Theory.
(1) Additive Combinatorics organized by G. Prakash and R.
Aim of the workshop: The famous celebrated result of Szemeredi
a subset of positive integers having a positive upper density contains
arbitrarily long arithmetic progressions. This particular result of
Szemeredi has various proofs including the one using combinatorics by
Szemeredi, one using analysis and combinatorics by Gowers and one using
ergodic theory by Furstenberg. In this workshop we shall try to cover
three proofs and indicate the recent developments in the subject.
Preliminary workshop: During 20th September to 26th September,
2011, Harish-Chandra Research Institute organizes a preliminary workshop on
the above topics to cover the basics. Interested people can apply. Limited
fund is available to cover the selected participants' travel during the
workshop period. This workshop is supported by HRI under the XIth plan
project "Special years in mathematics."
Speakers for the both parts of the workshop:
Sukumar Das Adhikari (HRI, Allahabad)
R. Balasubramanian (IMSc, Chennai)
- Siddhartha Bhattacharya (TIFR, Mumbai)
- S.G. Dani (TIFR, Mumbai)
