Title: Applications of the entropy method

Speaker: Michelle Delcourt
Affiliation: University of Waterloo
Room: MC 6486

Abstract: In the second talk of our reading group on entropy and counting. Following Galvin's survey, we will focus on Friedgut and Kahn's determination of the maximum number of copies of a fixed graph that can appear in another graph on a fixed number of edges.  If time permits, we also will examine Radhakrishnan's proof of Bregman's theorem on the maximum permanent of a 0-1 matrix with fixed row sums.
