(Pre-)Doc-Course:
Probabilistic and Enumerative Combinatorics


October 4 - November 26
FU Berlin and TU Berlin



TOPICS and LECTURES:

  1. The Probabilistic Method - An Introduction (Tibor Szabo)
  2. Differential Equation Methods for Stochastic Processes (Peter Keevash, Tom Bohman)
  3. Analytic Combinatorics, a Calculus of Discrete Structures (Philippe Flajolet)
  4. Combinatorics in Statistical Physics (Martin Loebl)

PROGRAM:

AUDIENCE:

The course is addressed to graduate students and postdocs of Mathematics or Computer Science, who are interested in the theory of random graphs, probabilistic methods, analytic combinatorics and related fields.


FORMAT:

Lectures will be given on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in the morning (9:00am to 11:00am) and and exercise sessions in the afternoon (4:00pm to 6:00 pm) on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The exercises will be solved in small groups and discussed at a problem session in the afternoon. The language of the course is English. Participants are strongly encouraged visit other mathematical seminars and lectures in Berlin on the other days.
