TITLE
Reverse Engineering the Preferential Attachment Random Graph Process

ABSTRACT
I will discuss a probabilistic approach to finding and proving asymptotic distributions for complex processes using distributional fixed point equations and couplings. The approach will be applied to "reverse engineer" new rules for the preferential attachment random graph process that lead to different asymptotic degree distributions. Additional bonus material and other surprises will be included.
