Phase transitions of Random Constraint Satisfaction Problems - 1

Presented by: 
Allan Sly Princeton University
Date: 
Monday 16th July 2018 - 11:15 to 12:15
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
Random constraint satisfaction problems encode many interesting questions in the study of random graphs such as the chromatic and independence numbers. Ideas from statistical physics provide a detailed description of phase transitions and properties of these models. We will discuss the one step replica symmetry breaking transition that many such models undergo and the Satisfiability Threshold for the random K-SAT model.
