The probability group conducts research in theoretical probability. Some of the areas which are covered by the group are: interacting particle systems and percolation, statistical mechanics, stochastic partial differential equations, mixing rates for Markov chains, ergodic theory, stochastic optimization, stochastic geometry and point processes.

## Seminar

We participate in the joint Analysis and Probability Seminar on Tuesdays, 15:15-16:15, room MV:L14. It is announced on the Calendar of Mathematical Sciences.## Group Members
