IMA Special Year on Discrete Structures

Professor Prasad Tetali is an organizer of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) Special Year on Discrete Structures. The Annual Thematic Program "Discrete Structures: Analysis and Applications" will focus on the frontier topics of discrete mathematics and its applications as well as the overlapping areas of probability and analysis.

Program workshops will span frontier topics of research in discrete mathematics (including combinatorics and optimization) and probability throughout the year. In the fall term, the program will focus on probabilistic, extremal, geometric, and enumerative aspects of combinatorics and convex and other nonlinear programming aspects of optimization. During the spring term, the focus will shift to theoretic, geometric, functional, and analytical aspects of probability and analysis.

The following workshops are scheduled:
