  • Tutorial

    On Friday the October 27th, two tutorial will take place which are held by two experts in the field of Analytic Combinatorics: Michele Soria (University of Paris 6) and Bernhard Gittenberger (Vienna University of Technology). The first tutorial will focus on enumerative aspects, the second on analytic aspects. The target audience for the tutorials are graduate students, PhD students and postdocs (but interested researcher are welcome to join as well!).

    A (rough) program is as follows:

    • 9:00 – 12:00, Tutorial 1:

      Speaker: Michele Soria
      Topic: Analytic Combinatorics: Combinatorial Methods and Applications

    • 14:00 – 17:00, Tutorial 2:

      Speaker: Bernhard Gittenberger
      Topic: Analytic Combinatorics: Complex-analytic Methods and Applications

  • Workshop

    The workshop will take place on October 28th and October 29th after the tutorial. The majority of talks will be 50mins followed by 10mins for questions/discussion.

    • List of Speakers (in alphabetical order):

      1. Axel Bacher (University of Paris 13)

Tutorial and Workshop on Analytic and Enumerative Aspects of Combinatorics – First Announcement

  • Description:

    This is the second joint meeting between this project and the participants of the ANR-MOST project: http://metaconc.stat.sinica.edu.tw/.The first took place in Paris from September 1st to September 2nd, 2016. The purpose of this meeting is to present recent research results of the participants of the two projects and discuss further joint collaborations. The meeting will start with a one-day tutorial which will be mainly geared towards students. Moreover, the meeting will be open to Taiwan’s local research community in Combinatorics (both students and researchers are welcome!).
  • Date:

    Friday, October 27, 2017 to Sunday, October 29, 2017
  • Place:

    Department of Applied Mathematics, National Chiao Tung University (NCTU)
  • Program:

    1. October 27, 2017: Tutorial given by Michele Soria (Pierre and Marie Curie University) and Bernhard Gittenberger (Technical University of Vienna)
    2. October 28-29, 2017: Workshop with approximately 10 talks
  • Accommodation:

    On-campus accommodation is limited; it’s more convenient but doesn’t include breakfast (however, there are many restaurants at NCTU’s campus). Off-campus accommodation, if further away from the campus, requires either a long walk or commuting by taxi (Hsinchu’s public transport system is less convenient). All off-campus places listed below can also be found on tripadvisor.

    On-campus guest houses:

    1. Guest house II $1,000/night; $200+ for double occupancy
    2. Guest house III, $1,500 NTD/night; $200+ for double occupancy


    1. Landis Inn Chuhu, $3,300 NTD/night, complimentary breakfast; 5-minute walk to NCTU (ca. 350m from the main gate)
    2. Berkeley Hotel $1,800 NTD/night, complimentary breakfast, 20-minute (pleasant) walk to NCTU via the campus of the neighboring Tsing-Hua University

One Day Workshop on Analytic and Enumerative Combinatorics

  • Description:

    Analytic and Enumerative Combinatorics are two closely related subareas of Combinatorics that share many common problems but pursue different goals (asymptotic solutions in the former and exact solutions in the latter). This workshop brings together national and international experts from both fields. The main aim of the workshop is to serve as a platform for presenting recent research trends and stimulating possible future joint research collaborations.
  • Fri., April 22, 2016
  • Room 223, Science Building I, National Chiao Tung University
  • Program:

    9:30-10:00: Registration

    10:00-10:10: Opening Remarks

    10:10-11:00: Helmut Prodinger (Stellenbosch University)
    Old and new results about the register function of binary trees and Batcher’s odd-even merge

    11:10-12:00: Sen-Peng Eu (National Taiwan Normal University)
    Toric g-polynomials of hook lattice matroid polytopes

    12:00-14:00: Lunch Break

    14:00-14:50: Hsien-Kuei Hwang (Academia Sinica)
    Limiting curves of Stirling ratios with applications

    15:00-15:50: Yeong-Nan Yeh (Academia Sinica)
    Some topics in enumerative combinatorics

    15:50-16:10: Tea Break
