Paul Vitányi is one of the world's most distinguished researchers in the area of Kolmogorov complexity. His research deserves broad attention. To honor Paul and his research, CWI has invited three of the world's most important researchers in theoretical computer science: Andrew Yao (Turing award 2000), Ming Li (coauthor of 'Introduction to Kolmogorov Complexity and its Applications) and Leonid Levin (co-inventor of NP-completeness). Paul's research is the central theme of this afternoon.
