The Stochastic Centre in Gothenburg was founded in 1996 to promote research in all areas of probability and statistics. It arranges international workshops, as of now it has held 42 of them, and hosts visitor programs and individual guest researchers, from all around the world.
Important centre research includes high-dimensional data analysis, medical and biological statistics, discrete probability, population models, extreme values, kinetic theory, abstract optimization, and spatial statistics. Projects are often conducted in close collaboration with scientists from other disciplines and from industry.
Chairman of the board Holger Rootzén
Director Rebecka Jörnsten
Financed by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, now through the project “Big data and big systems”, earlier by the Swedish Research Council and the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research

Stochastics for big data and big systems – bridging local and global
This project will develop general mathematics and statistics for understanding and modeling complex structures in time, space and networks. We will explore connectivity and phase transition for very large systems, develop theory which shows how normal behaviour changes and becomes extreme, provide methods to understand the effects which small and local perturbations have on systems, and solve difficult and important optimization problems.
