MAS581, 2010 Fall, KAIST
Topics in Mathematics: Analytic Combinatorics
This course is a gentle introduction to Analytic Combinatorics. We will start with generating functions, which describe the enumerative information of combinatorial structures in terms of power series as formal algebraic objects. We will study how certain combinatorial structures can naturally be decomposed into smaller building blocks and how such decompositions can be interpreted as functional operations of generating functions. Next we will view generating functions as analytic functions that map the complex plane into itself and study their analytic properties, e.g. singularity and singular expansions, from which we will extract asymptotic estimates of counting sequences. Finally we will study how this approach can be applied to various classes of maps and graphs on surfaces, in particular planar graphs.
