Random Shapes Tutorials

Part of the Long Program Random Shapes
March 13 - 16, 2007


We will offer tutorials in the first week of the program, giving an introduction to the relevant problems as well as to the relevant concepts from mathematics, physics and computer science. The goal is to familiarize participants with the issues and techniques involved in random structures, and to create a common language among researchers coming from different fields. Registration for these tutorials is free, to encourage broad participation.
