ZiF Summer School 2019

Randomness in physics and mathematics: From Stochastic Processes to Networks

12 - 24 August 2019
Convenors: Gernot Akemann (Bielefeld, GER), Friedrich Götze (Bielefeld, GER)

This international summer school is building on two previous ZiF summer schools, bringing together international PhD students and young postdocs from various areas in mathematics, mathematical and theoretical physics. We aim at about 40 participants to take part in two intense weeks of eight interdisciplinary lecture series. These will be presented by eight distinguished scientists. The school will include exercise sessions lead by the lecturers and offer the opportunity for all participants to present their own work in short contributions. The topics will include the theory of stochastic processes, complex networks, and integrable spin chains, using advanced mathematical and physics inspired tools as random matrices, partitions, replicas, and Coulomb gases. The two previous events at ZiF in 2013 and 2016 have been very successful. In view of the educational cycle of graduate students we think that a three year rhythm is ideal for this kind of programme.
