# Seminars

The Theoretical Computer Science and Discrete Mathematics Seminars will take place every Monday at 11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. and every Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. at the Institute for Advanced Study. The lectures will be held in S-101, the seminar room in Simonyi Hall, unless stated otherwise.

If you are interested in attending future seminars and are not already on our mailing list from previous years, please send an e-mail to Andrea Lass and ask to be added.

## Upcoming Seminar Titles Include:

### Stability and Testability

### Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar I

"Games against Nature" [Papadimitriou '85] are two-player games of perfect information, in which one player's moves are made randomly. Estimating the value of such games (i.e., winning probability under optimal play by the strategic player) is an...

### Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar II

A polynomial with nonnegative coefficients is strongly log-concave if it and all of its derivatives are log-concave as functions on the positive orthant. This rich class of polynomials includes many interesting examples, such as homogeneous real...

### Stability and Testability

### Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar I

Establishing inequalities among graph densities is a central pursuit in extremal graph theory. One way to certify the nonnegativity of a graph density expression is to write it as a sum of squares or as a rational sum of squares. In this talk, we...
