9780470170205: The Probabilistic Method

Praise for the Second Edition:

"Serious researchers in combinatorics or algorithm design will wish to read the book in its entirety...the book may also be enjoyed on a lighter level since the different chapters are largely independent and so it is possible to pick out gems in one's own area..."
Formal Aspects of Computing

This Third Edition of The Probabilistic Method reflects the most recent developments in the field while maintaining the standard of excellence that established this book as the leading reference on probabilistic methods in combinatorics. Maintaining its clear writing style, illustrative examples, and practical exercises, this new edition emphasizes methodology, enabling readers to use probabilistic techniques for solving problems in such fields as theoretical computer science, mathematics, and statistical physics.

The book begins with a description of tools applied in probabilistic arguments, including basic techniques that use expectation and variance as well as the more recent applications of martingales and correlation inequalities. Next, the authors examine where probabilistic techniques have been applied successfully, exploring such topics as discrepancy and random graphs, circuit complexity, computational geometry, and derandomization of randomized algorithms. Sections labeled "The Probabilistic Lens" offer additional insights into the application of the probabilistic approach, and the appendix has been updated to include methodologies for finding lower bounds for Large Deviations.

The Third Edition also features:

  • A new chapter on graph property testing, which is a current topic that incorporates combinatorial, probabilistic, and algorithmic techniques

  • An elementary approach using probabilistic techniques to the powerful Szemerédi Regularity Lemma and its applications

  • New sections devoted to percolation and liar games

  • A new chapter that provides a modern treatment of the Erdös-Rényi phase transition in the Random Graph Process

Written by two leading authorities in the field, The Probabilistic Method, Third Edition is an ideal reference for researchers in combinatorics and algorithm design who would like to better understand the use of probabilistic methods. The book's numerous exercises and examples also make it an excellent textbook for graduate-level courses in mathematics and computer science.

From the Publisher:

One of the most powerful and popular tools used in combinatorics is the probabilistic method. Describes current algorithmic techniques, applying both the classical method and the modern tools it uses. Along with a detailed description of the techniques used in probabilistic arguments, it includes basic methods which utilize expectation and variance plus recent applications of martingales and correlation inequalities. Examines discrepancy and random graphs and covers such topics as theoretical computer science, computational geometry, derandomization of randomized algorithms and more. A study of various topics using successful probabilistic techniques is included along with an Open Problems Appendix by Paul Erdos, the founder of the probabilistic method.
