Abstract: How to produce a process that looks like an unbiased coin flipping? This is clearly a question of multi-disciplinary importance. Without access to 'true randomness', relying on algebraic constructions is a common substitute. Even simple algebraic processes may offer indeed a great deal of complexity and are expected to display various randomness features.' In the lecture Prof Bourgain discusses some new developments in the underlying mathematics that explain some of these phenomena.
