Let X be a finite collection of sets. Given n>1 what is the maximal number of ways disjoint union of n sets (elements from X) is again a set in X? I will show you how to find good bounds of this quantity in terms of n and the cardinality of X.
Before the talk, at 3:10pm, there will be tea and cookies in Wean 6220.
