LMS-EPSRC Short Instructional Course - Random Graphs, Geometry & Asymptotic Structures

Aug 19 2013 - 00:00
Aug 23 2013 - 23:59

University of Birmingham, UK

Short description of the event: 

The objectives of this course are two-fold:

1. to provide an introduction to recent developments and techniques for classical problems in the theory of random graphs;

2. to cover geometric and topological aspects of the theory of random graphs and introduce participants to the diversity and the depth of the combinatorial, probabilistic and analytical methods that have been invented in this context.

The three main lecture course topics are:

 Long paths and hamiltonicity in random graphs (M. Krivelevich, Tel Aviv University)
 Random graphs from restricted classes (K. Panagiotou, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität)
 Random geometric graphs (M. D. Penrose, University of Bath)

There will also be a special guest lecture:
 Random planar graphs (C. McDiarmid, University of Oxford)

These lecture courses will be supplemented by tutorial sessions.

Application Form: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3CDNQ6L

Research students, post-docs and those working in industry are invited to apply.

Application Deadline: Monday 8 July 2013.

Numbers will be limited and those interested are advised to make an early application.

*All applicants will be contacted within two weeks after the deadline; information about individual applications will not be available before then*
*In the event of over-subscription preference will be given to UK-based research students*


All research students registered at a UK university will be charged a registration fee of £100. There will be no charge for subsistence costs.

UK-based postdocs will be charged a registration fee of £250, plus half the subsistence costs (£150) £400 in total.

All others (overseas students and postdocs, those working in industry) will be charged a registration fee of £250 plus the full subsistence costs (£300) £550 in total.

All participants must pay their own travel costs (for EPSRC funded students, this should be covered by their DTA).

Fees are not payable until a place on the course is offered but will be due by Friday 9 August.
