Reading seminar on integrable probability in Spring 2017

In the Spring 2017 me and Axel Saenz will continue with the Integrable Probability Reading Seminar. This time the topic will be “From random tilings to Kardar-Parisi-Zhang universality.” In terms of content, this is not a continuation of the Fall’s seminar. In the Spring, the seminar’s aim is to give a user-friendly introduction to modern and rapidly developing topics in probability theory with connections to combinatorics, algebra, representation theory on one side, and statistical physics and many other applications on the other side.

PCMI Summer session 2017 "Random matrices"

[Sunday, June 25, 2017 to Saturday, July 15, 2017]

A three-week program which brought together numerous leading experts in random matrices and related fields. For me personally this program has started a very exciting collaboration on probabilistic understanding of combinatorial summation identities.

SouthEastern Probability Conference at Duke University

[Monday, May 15, 2017 to Wednesday, May 17, 2017]

From the conference website:

This special edition of the Southeast Probability Conference will focus on interacting particle systems, random graphs, stochastic growth models, and their applications in biology, ecology, and statistical physics. It is also an occasion to honor the contributions of Professor Rick Durrett on the occasion of his 65th birthday.
