If you have a question about this talk, please contact INI IT. NPCW01 - Non-positive curvature in action Erdos and Renyi introduced a model for studying random graphs of a given “density” and proved that there is a sharp threshold at which lower density random graphs are disconnected and higher density ones are connected. We will explain some new threshold theorems for random graphs and focus in particular on applications to geometric group theory: these concern divergence functions, which provide quantifications of non-positive curvature. Some of this talk will be on joint work with Hagen and Sisto; other parts are joint work with Hagen, Susse, and Falgas-Ravry.
