Has your mathematics become mundane? Are you suffering through a mid-Masters crisis? If so (or even if not), come along and witness the wonder of the mysterious probabilistic method at work. Guaranteed* to reignite your passion for mathematics.
In this talk, we shall see some random number of applications of the probabilistic method in various fields. No prior knowledge** of combinatorics is assumed, and only very basic probability will be used.
* Or your money back.
**Indeed, for maximum dramatic effect, it is hoped no such knowledge exists.
