[Discrete-math-seminar] Combinatorics Wednesday research seminar and Friday seminar
rellis at math.iit.edu
Mon Mar 19 23:06:59 CST 2007
Dear all (DAM seminar list),
There are 3 upcoming combinatorics seminars.
Friday 3:15pm Mar 23 DAM Seminar, Joshua Cooper, room TBA
Joshua Cooper, USC Palmetto Asst. Prof., is visiting Friday 2pm-Monday
afternoon, and will give talks Friday at 3:15pm and on Monday, time to be
determined. Friday's talk will be "Random Linear Extensions of Grids"
(see http://math.iit.edu/academics/abstracts/Cooper2.html). I am hoping
he will tell us about the "chump number" (the maximum cost of unneeded
accessories a chump will buy on a new car given a certain linear extension
of a preference grid). He _will_ be telling us about the jump number.
Regardless, Josh is an excellent speaker, and I hope you will all join us.
Wednesday 11am Mar 21, DAM Research Seminar, E1 241
Either Sanjiv Kapoor will speak on his research, or I will give part 2 of
"The 2-batch liar game over a general bounded channel", continuing from
Monday Mar 26 time TBA room TBA, AM Colloquium, Joshua Cooper
Josh will give a colloquium talk on "Quasirandom Permutations" (abstract:
http://math.iit.edu/academics/abstracts/Cooper1.html), which relates to
discrepancy theory, permutation statistics, discrete harmonic analysis,
and numerical integration.
If you are interested in scheduling a research discussion with Josh,
please contact me soon. For definiteness, let's make the time slots as
Friday March 23
Monday March 26
Hope you can join us -- I will follow up with room assignemnts for the
Friday and Monday talks later.
