Abstract:
Large networks abound in modern life. There is also an
exciting, emerging theoretical development. This is centered
around "graph limit theory" with applications in combinatorics
(extremal graph theory, Szemeredi regularity...), probability
(exchangeability, limit theory for random graphs,...), and
statistics (failure of maximum likelihood, estimation without
normalizing constants,...). I will give an introduction to these
subjects, trying to keep a balance between theory and the real
world. Much of this is joint work with Sourav Chatterjee.
