Research area Probability Theory

Probability theory research group

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.


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.
