      [SNAP-2021-006-EN] Goldbring, Isaac (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2021-06-25)
      Given a set X, ultrafilters determine which subsets of X should be considered as large. We illustrate the use of ultrafilter methods in combinatorics by discussing two cornerstone results in Ramsey theory, namely ...
