*Fri*4PM-5PM (Room 3433, Bldg. E6-1)The limits of converging sequences of graphs are natural objects from extremal graph theory that are also representable as measure-theoretic objects (graphons) or as algebraic objects (flag algebra homomorphisms). I will give an introduction to this theory via a geometric relative: its adaptation from graphs to a combinatorial encoding of planar point sets. This is based on joint work with Alfredo Hubard, Rémi de Joannis de Verclos, Jean-Sébastien Sereni and Jan Volec (http://drops.dagstuhl.de/opus/volltexte/2015/5126/). The talk will not assume any specific knowledge.
