INHOMOGENEOUS RANDOM SYSTEMS
Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 January 2010 (Schedule)
The aim of this annual workshop, in conjunction with the "Rencontres de Physique Statistique", is to bring together mathematicians and physicists working on disordered or random systems, and to discuss recent developments on themes of common interest. Each of the two days is devoted to a specific topic:
Tuesday 26 January: Gradient models.
Moderator: Roman Kotecký (Praha and Warwick)
We have in mind a class of models (like random interfaces, microscopic theory of nonlinear elasticity, gradient free field, etc) where the fact that the interaction is a function of a gradient of the corresponding fields (zero mass from the point of view of the field theory) plays an important role. The topic is providing a contact between probability and analysis.
Speakers: S. Adams (Warwick), M. Biskup (Los Angeles), B. Duplantier (Saclay), N. Kurt (Berlin), C. Le Bris (Marne la Vallée), S. Luckhaus (Leipzig), J. Miller (Stanford).
Titles and abstracts
Wednesday 27 January: Stochastic geometry and statistical mechanics.
Moderator: Geoffrey Grimmett (Cambridge)
Sandpiles, percolation, magnetism, quantum gravity, and a host of other physical problems have benefited from collaboration between physicists and probabilists. The two theories have often developed in synchrony, if not always in unison, with remarkable progress that almost invariably uncovers new problems of importance. A well-defined community has emerged from this union. Today's target is bring together some of its principal exponents, with emphasis on the conjunction of probability and geometry.
Speakers: T. Bodineau (Paris), F. Camia (Amsterdam), A. Járai (Bath), J.L. Lebowitz (Rutgers), O. Riordan (Oxford), S. Smirnov (Genève), B. Tóth (Budapest).
