Conference on Graphs and Analysis

Institute for Advanced Study and Center for Computational Intractability at Princeton University
Princeton, New Jersey

Workshop Agenda


Laszlo Lovasz, Balazs Szegedy, Kati Vesztergombi and Avi Wigderson

One of the unexpecting emerging interactions between seemingly distant areas in mathematics is between graph theory and analysis. One such link is the theory of continuous limits of discrete structures. This theory has applications in computer science, probability theory, the theory of quasirandomness, number theory, statistical physics, and elsewhere. Further examples of interactions include the theory of measurable graphs, connections with ergodic theory, function norms related to graphs, analytic methods in extremal graph theory, and differential equations on graphs.

The conference will focus on connections between graph theory and analysis. It is open to other areas of, and ideas about, this interaction. Only a small number of tutorials and state-of-art lectures will be organized in advance (2-3 a day), the rest of the time will be reserved for ad hoc presentations and informal discussions.
