Noise sensitivity and dynamical percolation

Reading group, spring semester 2014

We'll be working from the lecture notes by Jeff Steif and Christophe Garban. Feel free to come and see me (4W1.13) at any point to discuss what exactly you should include - some chapters are long and might need pruning, whereas some are short and you could do some of the exercises or take some stuff from other chapters.
