Thesis Title:  Ramsey property of posets and related structures

Abstract:
We study several classes of finite posets with linear ordering.
We examine these classes according to the Ramsey and the
ordering property. As application we give several new extremely
amenable groups of automorphism of countable structures and
compute several new universal minimal flows
for such groups. The technique that we develop is also
useful for studying classes of structures related to posets,
such as pseudometric spaces and quasi orderings.
