    TITLE Branching in Innsbruck
    SPEAKER(S) check website
    TIME 23 September -  26 September 2019
    ABSTRACT The goal of this conference is to bring together young and senior researchers working in the field of branching processes, with a special focus on branching random walks and branching Brownian motion. We aim to create a stimulating atmosphere for the exchange of ideas and to foster new collaborations. There will be plenty of time for discussions.

    TITLE Spring School
    SPEAKER(S) check website
    TIME 25 February - 1 March 2019
    LOCATION building S2 07, Hochschulstraße 6, 64289 Darmstadt
    ABSTRACT Stochastic geometry is a classical topic in probability theory and has seen interesting developments in past years. The aim of this school is to introduce PhD students and young post-docs to some aspects of this development. The core of the school are two mini courses, each consisting of five 90-minute lectures:

    Zakhar Kabluchko (Münster) (Abstract)
    Joseph Yukich (Lehigh) (Abstract+Lecture notes).


    Research Seminar & Colloquium


    TITLE How Complex is a Random Picture
    SPEAKER Frank Aurzada (TU Darmstadt)
    TIME Thursday, 13 June 2019, 5:00 pm
    LOCATION Campus Technik, HSB4
    ABSTRACT We study the amount of information that is contained in "random pictures“, by which we mean the sample sets of a Boolean model. The talk will explain the concept of a Boolean model, which includes a model for a "completely random distribution of points in the plane". Then we shall study different concepts making the term "amount of information“ mathematically precise.

    The presented results are based on a joint work with Mikhail Lifshits (St. Petersburg).

    TITLE Branching random walks and the Fisher-KPP equation
    SPEAKER Alexander Drewitz
    TIME 24 January 2019, 5:00 pm
    LOCATION Universität zu Köln, Vortrag im Kolloquium
    ABSTRACT Branching random walks and branching Brownian motion are stochastic processes which have been receiving a lot of attention during the last couple of decades. They appear in a variety of more applied sciences (such as biology, statistical mechanics, and computer science) and exhibit deep connections to partial differential equations.

    We will provide a survey of some classical results and discuss the interesting effects of extensions to spatially heterogeneous branching rates.

    TITLE Large deviations and distances in the spatial preferential attachment model
    SPEAKER Dr. Christian Mönch (Universität Mannheim)
    TIME Thursday, 21 June 2018, 4:15 pm
    LOCATION Campus Technik, Seminarraum Mathematik 734 (Mathematik)
    ABSTRACT Preferential attachment models are self-reinforced growth models for complex networks. Recently, there has been much interest in developing PA models for networks embeded into some underlying geometric space. For one such model, proposed by Jacob and Mörters, I will discuss a Large Deviation principle for empirical vertex neighbourhoods and the asymptotics of the distance of two typical vertices in the giant component. The talk is based on joint work with Christian Hirsch (Aalborg).
