We explore environments in which rigid structural information can be deduced from rather soft combinatorial hypotheses. There will be a particular focus on finite and quantitative questions, although an important aspect of the workshop will be to explore connections with corresponding infinite and qualitative questions in ergodic theory, where as a general rule more is known. Topics include (but are not be limited to) the following.
- Freiman's theorem concerning the structure of sets with small doubling;
- The Gowers Inverse Conjecture, concerning the structure of sets containing many parallelepipeds;
- Finite versions of Ratner's theorem, concerning the structure of finite unipotent orbits in dynamical systems.
