Probabilistic analysis of algorithms (Luc Devroye)
Research lab: CARP
My courses--Dear prospective students: read this
My baby is 308-690, Probabilistic Analysis of Algorithms and Data Structures, a graduate level course that is strongly recommended for all students who want to do graduate work under my supervision. For prospective students from outside McGill, please make sure that you have a solid background in probability, and that you are completely and totally in love with that subject. Offered in 2007-2008 as 690A.
The undergraduate version of 308-690 is 308-490, Introduction to the Probabilistic Analysis of Algorithms. For undergraduate students at McGill: this course or the undergraduate course in probability from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, and a passion for probability theory, are necessary conditions if you want to do graduate work with me. Offered in 2006-2007 as 490B, but not offerred in 2007-2008.
