Approximate Enumeration of Polygons, Polymers and Link Diagrams

  • Start Date: 03/23/2018
  • End Date: 03/25/2018

University of British Columbia


This training workshop is directed towards graduate students and others interested in learning more about approximate enumeration methods for studying polygons, polymers and link diagrams.  A particular focus will be on developing improved sampling methods for studying statistical physics models of biopolymers.  Participants will use Jupyter and Python to learn via hands-on tutorials about data visualization and approximate enumeration methods.  There will also be a Knotplot tutorial.  A training workshop organized by the PIMS CRG in Applied Combinatorics
