I will give a brief introduction to block intersection polynomials, and
then discuss their application to the study of strongly regular graphs,
in particular describing recent joint work with Gary Greaves on
new upper bounds for the clique numbers of strongly regular graphs
in terms of their parameters. No previous knowledge of strongly
regular graphs will be assumed.
