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

The study of equitable coloring began with a conjecture of Erdos in 1964, and it was formally introduced by Meyer in 1973. An equitable \(k\)-coloring of a graph \(G\) is a proper \(k\)-coloring of \(G\) such that the sizes of the color classes differ by at most one. In 2003, Kostochka, Pelsmajer,... read more
