Parking Cars on a One-way Street
The classical parking problem asks for all sequences of length n that allow n cars to park on a one-way street without any of the cars having to exit the street. It is well known that parking functions are the unique solution to this problem. Parking functions first arose from the concept of storage in computer science and are very central in enumerative and algebraic combinatorics. In this talk, we will look at some recent variations and generalizations of the parking problem, and highlight some recent results in this regard.
