Description

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Workshop in Analytic and Probabilistic Combinatorics" workshop in Banff from October 23 to October 28, 2016.


Combinatorics is a young area in mathematics that has connections to almost all older fields, such as probability theory, analysis, algebra, number theory and geometry. Therefore, combinatorialists try to apply the existing strong theorems of these other fields in their research. However, no combinatorialist can master all the tools of all of these other fields. Our workshop tries to facilitate the learning of these tools by bringing together two separate groups of researchers, those who call themselves Analytic Combinatorialists, and those who call themselves Probabilistic Combinatorialists.


The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
