ABSTRACT:

Has your mathematics become mundane? Are you suffering through a

mid-Masters crisis? If so (or even if not), come along and witness the

wonder of the mysterious probabilistic method at work. Guaranteed* to

reignite your passion for mathematics.

In this talk, we shall see some random number of applications of the

probabilistic method in various fields. No prior knowledge** of

combinatorics is assumed, and only very basic probability will be used.

*Or your money back.

**Indeed, for maximum dramatic effect, it is hoped no such knowledge

exists.
