The Friendship Paradox: on average, your friends have more friends than you do.

Dr. Jamie Radcliffe, University of Nebraska-Lincoln presents a seminar on the Friendship Paradox.

What Is The Friendship Paradox?

The Friendship paradox, first observed by Feld in 1991, is the fact that, on average, your friends have more friends than you do, and it's not because you're a mathematician.

About The Seminar

Dr. Radcliffe will discuss joint work with Josh Brown Kramer, applied mathematician at Nebraska Global, and Jon Cutler, Professor in Montclair State's Mathematics Department as they study applications of entropy to combinatorics and graph polynomials.
