**Title:** Covering of space by random sets

**Speaker: ** Prof. Rahul Roy, Theoretical Statistics and Mathematics Unit,

Indian Statistical Institute, Delhi

**Abstract:** At random points of the integer lattice we place boxes of random
sizes. The question we ask is under what conditions the entire space is
covered. Also if instead of the entire lattice, our underlying space is a
subset of it, then what can we say about the coverage properties.
