Symposium in honour of Donald A. Dawson's work,
on the occasion of his 70th birthday

School of Mathematics & Statistics, Carleton University,
All Talks to take place at:
HP4351 Macphail Room, School of Mathematics and Statistics, Carleton University

Organizers: Miklós Csörgo, Antal A. Járai and Yiqiang Q. Zhao ( Carleton University)

Sponsored by:

Laboratory for Research in
and Probability

Registration on site Fee $40 CDN, waived for students & PDF's|

Theme: Probability and Stochastic Processes;

  • Measure-Valued Processes
  • Applications of Probability to Statistical Physics, Genetics, Finance and Communications
  • Stochastic Networks
  • Large Deviation Theory
  • Stochastic Differential Equations
  • Stochastic Partial Differential Equations
  • Population and Evolutionary Models
  • Stochastic Analysis
  • Hierarchical Mean-Field Analysis

This is for a four-day symposium in probability and stochastic processes, focusing on the areas: population and evolutionary models, stochastic analysis, measure-valued processes, hierarchical mean-field analysis and stochastic networks. The symposium is part of our ongoing series of workshops at Carleton University, organized with annually varying themes in diverse areas of probability and stochastic processes. Prior to the symposium, the LRSP is organizing a theme term in the Winter and Spring of 2007 focusing on Spatial Structure and Interaction in Stochastics, which will culminate in this final symposium honouring Don Dawson's work.

Dr. Donald Dawson will deliver a one-hour keynote speech, and 28 further speakers will give 40-45 minute lectures.
