Probability Seminar presents "Combinatorial anti-concentration inequalities"

Topic: 
Combinatorial anti-concentration inequalities
Monday, November 4, 2019 - 4:00pm
Venue: 
Sequoia Hall Room 200
Speaker: 
Matthew Kwan (Stanford Math)
Abstract / Description: 

Consider a degree-d polynomial f(ξ1, . . . , ξn) of independent Bernoulli random variables. What can be said about the concentration of f on any single value? This generalises the classical Littlewood–Offord problem, which asks the same question for linear polynomials. In this talk we discuss a few recent results in this area, focusing on combinatorial aspects.

This is joint work with Jacob Fox and Lisa Sauermann.
