Title: Markov models on trees: Variants of the reconstruction problem
 
 
Abstract: 
 
I will consider the so-called `reconstruction problem': how accurately
 
can one guess the state at the root of a Markov chain on a finite tree,
 
given the states at the leaves? I will introduce variants of this problem
 
that arise naturally in connection with applications in molecular
 
evolution, and discuss recent results and open problems. Based
 
on joint works with Andoni, Daskalakis, Hassidim, Mossel and
 
Sly.
