Abstract:

For the past decade I have been working on a project with Robin Pemantle to systematize coefficient extraction from multivariate generating functions. I will give a sketchy overview of results so far and then concentrate on recent work on higher order terms. Emphasis is placed on concrete computation and interesting examples.
