Weak convergence of finite graphs, integrated density of states and a Cheeger type inequalitySep 03 2005May 23 2006In \cite{Elek} we proved that the limit of a weakly convergent sequence of finite graphs can be viewed as a graphing or a continuous field of infinite graphs. Thus one can associate a type $II_1$-von Neumann algebra to such graph sequences. We show that ... More

Sunflowers and $L$-intersecting familiesJan 19 2016Let $f(k,r,s)$ stand for the least number so that if $\cal F$ is an arbitrary $k$-uniform, $L$-intersecting set system, where $|L|=s$, and $\cal F$ has more than $f(k,r,s)$ elements, then $\cal F$ contains a sunflower with $r$ petals. We give an upper ... More

Eighty-three sublattices and planarityJan 03 2019Jul 02 2019Let $L$ be a finite $n$-element lattice. We prove that if $L$ has at least $83\cdot 2^{n-8}$ sublattices, then $L$ is planar. For $n>8$, this result is sharp since there is a non-planar lattice with exactly $83\cdot 2^{n-8}-1$ sublattices.

Extremal Kähler metricsMay 19 2014This paper is a survey of some recent progress on the study of Calabi's extremal K\"ahler metrics. We first discuss the Yau-Tian-Donaldson conjecture relating the existence of extremal metrics to an algebro-geometric stability notion and we give some ... More

Alternation acyclic tournamentsApr 24 2017Apr 16 2019We define a tournament to be alternation acyclic if it does not contain a cycle in which descents and ascents alternate. Using a result by Athanasiadis on hyperplane arrangements, we show that these tournaments are counted by the median Genocchi numbers. ... More
