The general theme of this summer is "Random Walks and Simulation." There will be a few introductory lectures on random walks delivered by Davar Khoshnevisan. After these, the participants work individually or in groups, and deliver lectures on their works/reading. To encourage questions, remarks, and possible suggestions for further research directions, all lectures are informal in style.
Topics Random walks are intimately related to the study of a number of fundamental phenomenon in statistical physics, polymer chemistry, electrostatics, mathematical finance, and a number of diverse areas in pure and applied mathematics. All theoretical and applied area of research related to random walks can be explored. The participants will receive help in choosing an area that best suits their interests and backgrounds.
