Supporting material:

Scans of what I wrote during the lecture are here:

Chapter 1: Introduction to the structure theorem

Chapter 2: Necklaces and the grid theorem

Chapter 3: The crossing theorem and graph renditions

Chapter 4: The flat mesh theorem

Chapter 5: Societies and vorticial renditions

Chapter 6: Gluing flat regions together

Chapter 7: Filing cabinets

Overview (only pictures)

There are now also lecture notes. Many thanks to Raphael Jacobs, who TeXed them, and Florian Gut and Paul Knappe for correcting them.

As well as the graph minors papers of Robertson and Seymour, parts of the lecture will be closely based on the following papers:

A generalisation of the grid theorem by Jim Geelen and Benson Joeris

A new proof of the flat wall theorem by Paul Wollan

Videos of a lecture course by Jim Geelen on the same topic can be found here.
