Program Description

This program is focused on deep, research-oriented teaching of Combinatorial Geometry, Game Theory, Discrete Analysis, Random Graphs, Analysis of Complex Networks and other relevant fields.

The program stars with a bunch of courses that we call “re-indroductional”. These are needed to equate students’ basic knowledge in algebra, probability and basic discrete mathematics. We will rely on that basic tools during the next three semesters to build a solid picture of modern combinatorics, with a slight emphasis on graph (and network) theory and geometry. Every semester we will also have at least one course by an invited lecturer.
