Workshop on Interactions between Probability and Functional Analysis

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


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;
- non-commutative probability;
- free probability;
- random walks on groups.

LIST OF INVITED SPEAKERS (60 minute lecture):

- Marek Bozejko (University of Wroclaw)
- Miklos Csörgö (Carleton University)
- Thierry Giordano (University of Ottawa) *
- Marius Junge (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign);
- Vadim Kaimanovich (Jacobs University Bremen)
- Arunava Mukherjea (University of South Florida)
- Vladimir Pestov (University of Ottawa)
- Roland Speicher (Queen's University)
- Nicole Tomczak-Jaegermann (University of Alberta).
* to be confirmed

In addition, there will be several 30 minute presentations.
