Research Area: Topological Semigroups
I
study the algebraic structure of the StoneCech compactification of a
discrete semigroup and its applications to Ramsey Theory. The latter
field is a branch of combinatorics which deals with structures that are
guaranteed to be present in one cell of a finite partition of specified
sets, or often in any suitably large subset thereof.
