Title: A Gibbsian approach to load balancing in large graphs
The talk will be on load balancing on a large graph. A unit of load on
each edge of a graph is to be distributed between its nodes in a
balanced way. On infinite graphs, it is known that the problem exhibits
nonuniqueness. Recently, Anantharam and Salez in 2016 provided a general
solution and settled a conjecture of Hajek in 1990 on the Erdos-Renyi
model. The talk will outline the steps of a more classical Gibbsian
approach to solve the problem.
