Description:

The last years have witnessed an increasing interaction among the disciplines of discrete mathematics, computer science and statistical physics on combinatorial problems over random structures and related algorithmic issues.
Motivated by the rate of progress in such an interdisciplinary area of research, the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics will organize a School on "Statistical Physics, Probability Theory and Computational Complexity", from 26 August to 4 September 2002. The School will be followed by a topical Conference on "Typical-Case Complexity, Randomness and Analysis of Search Algorithms", from 5 to 7 September 2002.

The aim of both School and Conference is to encourage young, qualified mathematicians, computer scientists and theoretical physicists to broaden their horizons, learn new subjects and apply the sophisticated tools developed in mathematics and theoretical physics to the field of computer science.
