**Lectures on Noise Sensitivity and Percolation**

by Christophe Garban, Jeffrey E. Steif

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 150

**Description**:

The goal of this set of lectures is to combine two seemingly unrelated topics: (1) The study of Boolean functions, a field particularly active in computer science; (2) Some models in statistical physics, mostly percolation.
