New paper on arXiv: Exponential random graphs behave like mixtures of stochastic block models

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in academic papers whose opening paragraphs describe the increasing interest in the (increasingly common) field of network theory. From mathematicians to sociologists, many a great scientist have written introductory paragraphs on this interesting explosion. For example: Chatterjee and Diaconis (2013): Bhamidi, Bresler and Sly (2011): Yan, … More New paper on arXiv: Exponential random graphs behave like mixtures of stochastic block models

New paper on arXiv: Indistinguishable sceneries on the Boolean hypercube

I’m happy to say that fellow student Uri Grupel and I uploaded a paper to the arXiv recently under the title “Indistinguishable sceneries on the Boolean hypercube” (https://arxiv.org/abs/1701.07667). We had great fun working on it, and most of the theorems are actually pretty simple and do not use heavy mathematical machinery, so I’d like to … More New paper on arXiv: Indistinguishable sceneries on the Boolean hypercube

This is certainly easy enough for all those twice blessed prokaryotes; twice blessed, first, for their asexual reproduction via mitosis, obliviating … More The Perfect Match
