Further detail
In Spring 2019 we will be covering selected topics from `The Probabilisitic Method’, by Alon and Spencer. We will meeting on Mondays at 4pm in Lecture Theatre C. We will cover the following topics: Dependent Random Choice, Janson’s inequality, Clique number of random graphs, Chromatic number of random graphs, Rödl Nibble, Independence number of triangle-free graphs, Quasirandom graphs, Containers and list colouring. 0 upcoming talks and ## Probabilistic existence of expander graphsNicolas Sanhueza Matamala University of Birmingham ().
