Szemeredi-Trotter theorem in general finite fields

Ali Mohammadi (Sydney)

Wednesday 2 November 2016, 12:00–13:00 in Carslaw 535A.

Please join us for lunch after the talk!

Abstract: We say a point is incident to a line if it lies on that line. Let \(F\) be a finite field, not necessarily of prime order. We seek to establish non-trivial upper bounds on the number of incidences between sets of points and lines in the plane \(F \times F\). In this talk I will discuss the best-known results and some improvements.
