Workshop on Interactions between Probability and Functional
Analysis


ORGANIZERS: C.K. Fong, Wojciech Jaworski, Matthias Neufang

OVERVIEW
The aim of the workshop is to bring together mathematicians exploring
the interconnections of probability and functional analysis from
various perspectives. This comprises areas such as the following:
 probability in Banach space theory;
 probability in operator space theory;
 noncommutative probability;
 free probability;
 random walks on groups.

 Marek Bozejko (University of Wroclaw)
 Miklos Csörgö (Carleton University)
 Thierry Giordano (University of Ottawa) *
 Marius Junge (University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign);
 Vadim Kaimanovich (Jacobs University Bremen)
 Arunava Mukherjea (University of South Florida)
 Vladimir Pestov (University of Ottawa)
