Seminar: Analysis of a Growth Process for Plane Trees

Date: July 7, 2017

This week I am giving a two-part talk series in Mark Ward’s informal seminar on Analytic Combinatorics at Purdue University.

Abstract. We consider a growth process generating a special subclass of plane trees and carry out the asymptotic analysis of parameters related to this process (like the age of a given tree or the speed of the process itself). And instead of doing the computationally hard parts of the analysis by hand, I will demonstrate how to use a core module in SageMath to to deal with computing asymptotic expansions and even carry out singularity analysis for us.

The material for my seminar talks (lecture notes, SageMath worksheet) can be found on my Talks page.
