MIT Probability Seminar

Monday, September 21, 2020 at 4:15am to 5:15am

Virtual Event

Featured Speaker: Eitan Bachmat (Ben-Gurion University)

Title: On maximal (weight) increasing subsequences

Abstract:

We will discuss the connection between the first order asymptotics of maximal weight increasing subsequences and comparison of natural (and implemented) airplane boarding policies.

We then consider the behavior of weight fluctuations of maximal weight increasing subsequences by viewing them as discrete versions of maximal proper time curves in various space-time domains.
