## Random Structures and Statistical Inference: a teaser

##### Abstract:

In the upcoming Spring Quarter 2024 I will teach MATH262A 'Random Structures and Statistical Inference:', which is a topics course at the intersection of combinatorial statistics, algorithms and probabilistic combinatorics. The goal of this informal lecture is to give a glimpse into the kind of questions we intend to cover in this course. To this end we shall review the 'hidden clique' problem, which is a simple prototypical example with a surprisingly rich and interesting structure behind.
