DESCRIPTION:U-statistics form a large class of random variables that appea
r in many contexts. I will focus on some simple and some less obvious appl
ications to patterns in random permutations and random strings\, and gener
al results useful in these applications (and sometimes motivated by them).
This will include some less common versions of U-statistics (asymmetric U
-statistics and U-statistics based on an m-dependent sequence)\, and some
new results on renewal theory for U-statistics.\nSpeakers:\nSvante Janson
