## Contents

Positive probability to prove existence

1st and 2nd moment method

Erdös-Renyi model

Threshold functions

Lovasz Local Lemma

correlation inequalities

## Qualification Goals

Students can

• derive basic properties of combinatorial structures with the help of probabilistic methods,
• recognize combinatorial structures in different contexts and analyze them with the help of probabilistic methods.

They deepen

• the practice of mathematical methods (development of mathematical intuition and its formal justification, training of the ability to abstract, proof methods),
• in the recitation classes, their oral communication skills through discussion and free speech in front of an audience.

## Prerequisites

Translation is missing. Here is the German original:

Empfohlen werden die Kompetenzen, die in den Modulen Elementare Stochastik und Diskrete Mathematik vermittelt werden.

## Applicability

Module imported from M.Sc. Business Mathematics.

It can be attended at FB12 in study program(s)

• B.Sc. Mathematics
• B.Sc. Business Mathematics
• M.Sc. Data Science
• M.Sc. Mathematics

## Please note:

This page describes a module according to the latest valid module guide in Winter semester 2018/19. Most rules valid for a module are not covered by the examination regulations and can therefore be updated on a semesterly basis. The following versions are available in the online module guide:

The module guide contains all modules, independent of the current event offer. Please compare the current course catalogue in Marvin.
