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.
