Title:

The expansion
problem and its ramifications

Abstract:

The expansion
problem asks if a given mathematical structure can
be expanded by adding to it a fixed number of
additional relations in
such way that the expanded structure captures in
some precise way every
other such expansion. The series of lectures will
survey this problems as
it shows up in different areas of mathematics such
as Logic, Topological Dynamics and Ergodic Theory.
