Combinatorics seminar: Chaim Even Zohar (UC Davis) "Patterns in Random Permutations"

Every k entries in a permutation can have one of k! different relative orders, called patterns.  How many times does each pattern occur in a large random permutation?  The distribution of this vector of pattern densities was studied by Janson, Nakamura, and Zeilberger (2015). We use representations of the symmetric group, and the theory of U-statistics to further analyze this distribution.  The talk will include some relevant background on these tools, and applications to nonparametric statistics.
