Next, the authors examine where probabilistic techniques have been applied successfully, exploring such topics as discrepancy and random graphs, circuit complexity, computational geometry, and derandomization of randomized algorithms.
Linearity of expectation, the second moment method, the local lemma, correlation inequalities, martingales, large deviation inequalities, Janson and Talagrand inequalities and pseudo-randomness. Most of the topics covered in the course appear in the book listed below especially the probabilistic method one.
Other topics appear in recent probabilistic method.
Other References The Wikipedia page on the Probabilistic Method is not a bad place to start the link to the paper by Alon and Krivelevich is broken, and should be replaced by probabilistic method. Also published by Academic Press, New York, Probabilistic method early book on the probabilistic method, much shorter than Alon and Spencer.
Another way to use the probabilistic method is by calculating the expected value of some random variable.
If it can be shown that the random variable can take on a value less than the expected value, this proves that the random variable can also take on some value greater than the expected value.
The organizers wish to award n prizes at the end of the tournament. It would be embarrassing if there ended up being a team probabilistic method had probabilistic method won a prize despite beating all the teams that had won a prize.
