Séminaire Probabilités et Statistiques
Towards the Van Hemmen and Palmer approach to Ulam's problem
mai 2024
Intervenant : Shannon Starr
Institution : The University of Alabama at Birmingham
Heure : 15h30 - 16h30
Lieu : 3L15

I will describe van Hemmen and Palmer's old explanation of the failure of Sherrington and Kirkpatrick's original solution to their model. It involves indeterminacy of the classical moment problem. Then I will try to suggest that for the theoretical physicists they might be aided by knowing moments of the generalized Ulam problem*, which we have started to calculate. *That is the problem of determining how many increasing subsequences there are of a certain length in a random permutation.
