Probability Theory, August 4 – 5

Organizer: Amir Dembo.

Many-body random systems are of fundamental importance in statistical mechanics. They model diverse phenomena, such as phase transitions, turbulent fluids or even traffic flow. Probabilists seek to answer central questions concerning such systems, selecting and analysing models that are simple enough that they may be analysed in a rigorous mathematical fashion, yet rich enough to capture important physical features. A guiding theme is universality: discovering and analysing mathematical structures that describe basic shared aspects of seemingly very different natural phenomena.
