||Noga Alon, Joel Spencer
The Probabilistic Method, Wiley, 2008.
||A basic knowledge of combinatorics and probability theory.
||Grades will be based on homework take-home assignments (70% of points),
and the final exam (30% of points).
The main objective of the course is to study a number of various probabilistic techniques used in
combinatorics, number theory, and computer science.
A number of problems will be assigned once a week (typically on Thursday evening). These
problems will be graded.
The final in-class exam will be comprehensive but will consist of the problems which will be either identical or very similar to
that we will be solving in the class or assigned for homework assignments.
|| If you have any question or comments please e-mail me.
You are also welcome to just drop by at my office at
any time (it might happen that I am not there, so perhaps
it is a good idea to call me first), or
make an appointment, preferably by e-mail.
| Next class:
||There will be no class on January 9th, so we will meet only on January 16th.
