Second third of my ICM 2018 paper – Three Puzzles on Mathematics, Computation and Games. Corrections and comments welcome
Update: Here is a combined version of all three parts: Three puzzles on mathematics computations and games. Thanks for the remarks and corrections. More corrections and comments welcome. Dear all, here is the draft of the second third of my paper … Continue reading
Two Delightful Major Simplifications
Arguably mathematics is getting harder, although some people claim that also in the old times parts of it were hard and known only to a few experts before major simplifications had changed matters. Let me report here about two recent remarkable simplifications … Continue reading

Analysis of Boolean Functions week 5 and 6
Lecture 7 First passage percolation 1) Models of percolation. We talked about percolation introduced by Broadbent and Hammersley in 1957. The basic model is a model of random subgraphs of a grid in ndimensional space. (Other graphs were considered later as … Continue reading

A Problem on Planar Percolation
Conjecture (Gady Kozma): Prove that the critical probability for planar percolation on a Cayley graph of the group is always an algebraic number. Gady mentioned this conjecture in his talk here about percolation on infinite Cayley graphs. (Update April 30: Today Gady mentioned … Continue reading
Noise Sensitivity Lecture and Tales
A lecture about Noise sensitivity Several of my recent research projects are related to noise, and noise was also a topic of a recent somewhat philosophical post. My oldest and perhaps most respectable noiserelated project was the work with Itai Benjamini and Oded … Continue reading
