SUMMARY:A generalization of the Coupon Collector Problem
DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Jainam Khakhra (TIFR)\n\nAbstract: \nThe Coupon Collec
tor is a well known problem in Probability Theory and has given rise to se
veral interesting larger problems and generalizations. In this talk\, we d
iscuss the Coupon Collector Problem and a specific generalization of it by
introducing the notion of a Super Coupon which is an s-sized subset of a
universe of n coupons. If time permits we discuss this in the context of R
andom Walks on Graphs. The talk will be based on the paper\, "On a General
ization of the Coupon Collector Problem" by Siva Athreya\, Satyaki Mukherj
ee and Soumendu Sundar Mukherjee.\nLink to paper: https://arxiv.org/pdf/2
