A classical construction in topology associates to a space X and prime p, a new "localized" space Xp whose homotopy and homology groups are obtained from those of X by inverting p. In this talk, I will discuss a symplectic analog of this...

Random sampling a subgraph of a graph is an important algorithmic technique.  Solving some problems on the (smaller) subgraph is naturally faster, and can give either a useful approximate answer, or sometimes even give a result that can be quickly...
