  Matthew Kahle (Ohio State, TU Berlin)
  J. Andrew Newman (TU Berlin)
  Yuval Peled (NYU Courant Institute)

Scope:
——

Stochastic topology began in the mid-twentieth century with the study
of random graphs, that is, random 1-dimensional spaces. More recently,
several models of random high-dimensional simplicial complexes have been
introduced. Some of the most important questions in stochastic topology
have to do with establishing thresholds for various topological properties
within these models. This course will begin with an overview of the
standard combinatorial and geometric models, and then we will explore
some of the techniques that have been used to study them.

The block course is organized within the third Berlin Thematic Einstein
Semester on the “Geometric and Topological Structure of Materials”,
devoted to recent developments in the field of computational materials science.
