Applied Probability Discussion Group
Location: Warren Weaver Hall 1314
Time: Mondays 11am-12:30pm
Contact: Miranda Holmes-Cerfon
This is an informal discussion group for all those interested in applied probability and/or computational statistical mechanics. Each meeting is led by one participant, who will either
(i) present a paper or sequence of papers on a topic related to their research;
(ii) discuss the current state of their research;
(iii) practice a more formal presentation.
To keep this informal we will try to avoid using the projector (except for practice presentations)
and we strongly encourage questions and discussion.
We will meet roughly every 2 weeks.
For past schedules see here.
