Here is an advert for Christos Papadimitriou's talk at Liverpool next week.
...to my shame, I will not be there; I will be giving lectures at the 14th Estonia Winter School in Computer Science. This school is for research students mainly from Eastern Europe, and my lectures will be an intro to game theory and computational complexity, including an introduction to the complexity classes of total search problems introduced by Christos in the early 90s.
The school is located at Palmse Manor, a remarkably isolated-looking spot (based on checking google maps) about 80km east of Tallinn.
Why is mathematics possible?
