报告题目:

Title: On the universality of the FKT algorithm


报告摘要:

Abstract: I will describe our current work on the classification program on
Counting problems. These include most of Sum of product type 
Computation, including spin systems, graph homomorphsism, constraint
Satisfaction problems. We discuss how universal the algorithm of
FKT for planar perfect matching, via holographic reductions,
Is for this program. I will describe a number of dichotomy theorems.
