8. february, kl. 11:40, í Oddi O-106 Fyrirlesari: Anders Claesson, Háskóli Íslands. Titill: Permutations with few inversions Ágrip: We consider permutations of [n] with at most n inversions; this is what we mean by permutation with few inversions. In particular, we present a curious generating function for permutations of [n] with exactly n inversion. Furthermore, […]

Málstofa 12 september, kl. 10:50 (athugið óvenjulega tímasetningu!) Fyrirlesari: Gordon Slade (University of British Columbia)Titill: Self-avoiding walk, spin systems, and renormalisationÁgrip: The subject of critical phenomena in statistical mechanics is a rich source of interesting and difficult mathematical problems that touch oncombinatorics, probability, and mathematical physics. Self-avoiding walks and lattice spin systems provide fundamental examples. This

Postdoctoral position in mathematics at the University of Iceland

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the University of Iceland financed by The Icelandic Research Fund. The research project is called: „Scaling limits of random enriched trees“ and is in the field of probabilistic combinatorics. The project includes studying scaling limits of random graphs, statistical mechanical models on random planar maps and related
