(Pre-)Doc-Course 2010
Probabilistic and Enumerative Combinatorics
October 4 -- November 26
FU Berlin and TU Berlin


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


Lectures: Tue, Wed, Thu, 09:00--11:00
Exercises: Wed, Thu, 16:00-18:00

October 4-8: Tibor Szabo, at FU Berlin
October 11-15: Peter Keevash, at FU Berlin
October 18-29: Tom Bohman, at FU Berlin
November 1-12: Philippe Flajolet, at TU Berlin
November 15-26: Martin Loebl, at TU Berlin


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.


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 6:00pm) 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.


Please send a short curriculum vitae to Margrit Barrett
indicating which weeks of the course you would like to attend.


There are several other lectures and seminars taking place in Berlin,
which might be of interest to the visiting students.
