CS Theory -- Erdős Lecture: Igor Pak (UCLA) "Counting Young tableaux"--CANCELLED

Lecturer: 

Igor Pak (UCLA)

The number of standard Young tableaux of skew shape is a mesmerizing special case of the number of linear extensions of posets, that is important for applications in representation theory and algebraic geometry.  In this case there is a determinant formula, but finding their asymptotics is a difficult challenge.  I will survey some of the many beautiful result on the subject, explain some surprising product formulas, connections to Selberg integral, lozenge tilings and certain particle systems.
