Particle systems in random environments

Short description

One of the central research topics in probability is understanding the interplay between
random processes and random environments. The school will focus on widely popular
models, such as random walks, the contact process, the voter model and branching
random walks in random (dynamical) environments and/or graphs.

Location and dates

The school will take place from Monday 26th August (9 am) to Friday 30th August
(1 pm)
at the Goethe-Universität Frankfurt.
