Big’MC seminar

Two very interesting talks at the Big’ MC seminar on Thursday:

Phylogenetic models and MCMC methods for the reconstruction of language history by Robin Ryder

Uniform and non-uniform random generators by Régis Lebrun

which are both on topics close to my interest, evolution of languages (I’ll be a philologist in another life!) and uniform random generators.
