Title: Entropy and enumeration
|Speaker:||Jorn van der Pol|
|Affiliation:||University of Waterloo|
Abstract: The information-theoretic concept of entropy is closely related to enumeration; there are many situations in which entropy can be used to obtain surprisingly short and strong bounds on cardinalities of sets. In this talk, I will discuss some of the properties of entropy as well as a number of applications.
