Discrete structures and related methods from stochastic analysis (DSSA)

Workshop (spring school) at Technion, Haifa, Israel, on 04 – 08 March 2013.           

Organized by Leonid Mytnik (Haifa) and Achim Klenke (Mainz).

Topics

·        Population models and related processes (e.g., fragmentation, coalescents, measure-valued processes, random trees)

·        Branching random walks and Gaussian free field

·        Random geometric structures

Focus group: Young researchers (PhD students, postdocs).
