Title:  Combinatorial Nullstellensatz and its Applications

Abstract:   The Combinatorial Nullstellensatz is a statement about zeroes of a multi-variable polynomial over a field. It has seen a remarkable number of applications to number theory, enumerative combinatorics, and graph theory. Roughly speaking, it gives quantitative information on how a polynomial of a certain degree cannot vanish over a large enough set of values.

In this talk I will briefly explain the statement of this theorem, and then illustrate through examples a general technique for using it to prove a variety of powerful results.
