Graduate seminar: topics in discrete probability. Tel Aviv university, Fall 2015

Thursday 4 - 6 pm
Room: Schreiber 209

We will study some contemporary papers in discrete probability. In an attempt to be diverse we will study papers dealing with Markov chains and mixing, percolation, combinatorics, geometric group theory and even some computer science (efficient sampling). Below is a list of papers we plan to discuss - ideally each student will give a 2 hour talk on one of the papers. On the first meeting I will provide an introduction and survey of some of the papers and discuss some organizational matters.
