Combinatorial Problems Raised
by Statistical Mechanics

Theme semester in recent Advances in Combinatorics

February 19-23, 2007

Mireille Bousquet-Mélou (Bordeaux)
Tony Guttmann (Melbourne)
Pierre Leroux (UQAM)
Alan Sokal (New York)

This workshop will include expository talks as well as presentations on current research on combinatorial problems raised by statistical mechanics. Topics of interest include: enumerative problems related to the classical models of statistical mechanics, algebraic methods related to functional equations, Mayer's theory and graph weights, Potts model on graphs, planar maps and 2-dimensional quantum gravity, Feynman diagrams, etc.

The meeting will be held at the CRM.

This workshop is preceeded by the School in Statistical Mechanics and Combinatorics.
