Seminaire de Mathematiques Superieures 2012: Probabilistic Combinatorics June 25, 2012 - July 06, 2012
Parent Program: --
Location: Seminaire D' Etudes Superieures, Montreal, Canada
Organizers Louigi Addario-Berry* (McGill University), Luc Devroye (McGill University), Bruce Reed (McGill University)
Description One of the cornerstones of the probabilistic approach to solving combinatorial problems is the following guiding principle: information about global structure can be obtained through local analysis. This principle is ubiquitous in probabilistic combinatorics. It arises in problems ranging from graph colouring, to Markov chain mixing times, to Szemerédi's regularity lemma and its applications, to the theory of influences. The 2012 Séminaire de Mathématiques Supérieures brings together experts in probabilistic combinatorics from around the world, to explain cutting edge research which in one way or another exhibits this principle.

  1. In addition to the nomination at MSRI, a separate application via the SMS Homepage is required to participate in this workshop.
  2. Participation is subject to selection by the organizers, see Description of the SMS.
  3. MSRI can only support students from US institutions.
  4. Due to the small number of students supported by MSRI, only one student per institution will be accepted.
