# Online talk: Alexey Pokrovskiy (non-standard day & time!)

We’re really excited to have Alexey Pokrovskiy speak on his fantastic recent result on Rota’s Basis Conjecture this upcoming week. This talk has been moved to be a part of the Tutte Colloquium at Waterloo and so will be held at a different day and time than usual. Here are the full details.

##### Friday, September 25,1pm ET (6pm BST, 5am Tue NZST)Alexey Pokrovskiy, Birkbeck, University of LondonRota’s Basis Conjecture holds asymptoticallyYoutube

Abstract:
Rota’s Basis Conjecture is a well known problem, that states that for any collection of $n$ bases in a rank $n$ matroid, it is possible to decompose all the elements into $n$ disjoint rainbow bases. Here an asymptotic version of this is will be discussed – that it is possible to find $n – o(n)$ disjoint rainbow independent sets of size $n – o(n)$.
