Hitting the Forest with the Trees

Keith Frankston - Rutgers University

Location:  Hill 701 (GSL)
Date & time: Wednesday, 13 March 2019 at 12:15PM - 1:15PM

Abstract: Cayley's formula states that the number of labeled spanning trees of K_n is n^{n-2}. How many of those spanning trees contain a fixed forest? Can you generate a uniformly random spanning tree algorithmically? Can you generate a uniformly random spanning tree containing a fixed forest? We will answer some subset of these questions; come to the talk to find out which ones!
