Venue: Department of Mathematics, LH-1
In the seqries of 4 lectures, we will cover some aspects of the Littlewood-Offord problem. This problem concerns the anti-concentration phenomenon of sums of independent random variables and has applications to invertibility of random matrices and statistics of real zeros of random polynomials. The subject overlaps probability, combinatorics, additive combinatorics and some algebra.
