Course content:

We give a broad overview of the subject of Combinatorics and Probability on groups. The topics include random walks on finite groups, computational group theory, property testing, random generation, combinatorics of Cayley graphs, and selected topics on random combinatorial objects. We survey the results and include the most recent advances (some with proofs time depending, and some without).

Course notes:
