Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 106
A classical theorem of Johansson from 1996 asserts that \(\chi(G)=O(\Delta/\ln\Delta)\) for triangle-free graphs \(G\) of maximum degree \(\Delta\). Johansson's original proof of this result was quite intricate and involved iterated applications of the Lov\'asz Local Lemma. Recently, Molloy has... read more

In stratified survey sampling, one divides a population into homogeneous subgroups and then draws samples from each subgroup independently. Stratification often permits accurate computation of statistics from a sample much smaller than required otherwise. One can stratify Markov chain Monte Carlo (... read more

Martingale optimal transport (MOT), a version of the optimal transport (OT) with an additional martingale constraint on transport’s dynamics, is an optimisation problem motivated by, and contributing to model-independent pricing problems in quantitative finance. Compared to the OT, numerical... read more
