Inn'formal Probability Seminar

This seminar is organized by Ecaterina Sava-Huss and Alexander Glazman.

The idea is to discuss recent exciting research developments in the field of Probability (in a broad sense). Some talks are given by speakers invited from other universities but this is also a place for everybody in Innsbruck to share with each other their recent results - or just something cool that we have read. The seminar is very informal and there is always a lot of discussions during the talks (so they tend to last a little longer…).

Each talk will start by an introductory part (~30min), where the speakers will explain some basic concept in their research and the motivation behind.

Please write to Sasha ( if you want to be on the mailing list.

Speakers Summer Term 2024

Time and place: Tuesdays 13:45-15:15, SR 609 (civil engineer building).  Sometimes, the probability seminar will be replaced by the mathematical monthly colloquium, which is dedicated to a broader audience. The colloquium takes place Wednesdays.
