Alan Sokal (New York University and University College, London)

will speak on

Some wonderful conjectures (but almost no theorems) at the boundary between analysis, combinatorics and probability

at 12 noon on Tuesday 20 July

in Maths Lecture Room 2.

Abstract: I discuss some analytic and combinatorial properties of the entire function $F(x,y) = um imits_{n=0}^ nfty rac{x^n}{n!} y^{n(n-1)/2}$. This function (or formal power series) arises in numerous problems in enumerative combinatorics, notably in the enumeration of connected graphs.

All welcome
