Statistics Seminars: Finitely dependent colouring

Presented by Alexander Holroyd, University of Washington

25 June 2018 14:00 in CM301

Do local constraints demand global coordination? I'll address a
particularly simple formulation of this question: can the vertices of a
graph be assigned random colours in a stationary way, so that neighboring
colours always differ, but without long-range dependence? The quest to
answer this has led to the discovery of beautiful yet mysterious new
stochastic processes that seemingly have no right to exist.
