Speaker: Nathan Linial (Hebrew Univ. of Jerusalem, Israel)
The probabilistic method has revolutionized modern combinatorics. Can this revolution be exported to other areas? An interesting possibility is to investigate topological structures from the perspective of the probabilistic method. In this talk I will discuss several recent papers where we attempt to do this. We are considering (i) Simplicial complexes and (ii) Curves on 2-dimensional manifolds.
The works I will discuss are joint with Roy Meshulam, Tah Nowik, Mishael Rosenthal and Lior Aronshtam.
The talk is self-contained and requires no particular background in topology.
