Dr Jason Miller – Random Trees

Tonight’s talk will be given by Dr Jason Miller

Speaker: Dr Jason Miller
Title: Random Trees
A tree is a graph without any cycles. Since there are only a finite number of trees with n vertices, one can imagine picking such a tree at random just like one can pick a card from a deck at random. It turns out that random trees have many applications and are ubiquitous in modern probability theory. In this talk, I will describe some of the basics of random trees and how they are related to some very exciting recent mathematical developments.

The talk will take place at 8:30PM on Monday 6 November in the Winstanley Lecture Theatre. As usual there will be free port and juice served before the talk at 8:15PM. This talk is for members only, but there will be a chance to sign up for TMS life membership for £2.50.
