TOPICS IN MODERN STOCHASTIC ANALYSIS
September 21 and 22, 2000

The Fields Institute will be hosting a workshop on "Topics in Modern Stochastic Analysis" in celebration of Donald A. Dawson's contribution to Canadian mathematics and in particular to Probability Theory.

Topics

The focus of the workshop will be on recent developments in measure-valued processes and stochastic partial differential equations and their applications.

AMS Meeting: Following the workshop, Dr. Dawson will be speaking during the American Mathematical Society Special Session on Probability being held at the University of Toronto, Sept. 23 and 24, 2000.
