Abstract: 
Structures are shown to emerge in large random networks, under variable
constraints, when examined at large scale. They are automatically created
by the coalescence of nodes into a small number of equivalence classes,
which must cooperate to create structure in order to satisfy the constraints.
The structures change gradually as constraints vary within a phase, and
change sharply at phase transitions.

This talk is based on joint work with Richard Kenyon, Kui Ren and Lorenzo Sadun.
