Random trees and moduli of curvesColloquium
|Speaker:||Andrei Okounkov, UC Berkeley|
|Start time:||Mon, Mar 12 2001, 4:10PM|
I will explain how some basic theory of random trees can be useful for some rather advanced algebro-geomertic computations, namely, to prove Kontsevich's formula for intersection numbers on the moduli spaces of curves.
