Outline of Scientific Activities

The program will be divided into three parts each concentrated around a week long workshop. The first part of the program (January February) will be around stochastic processes and random walks . The second part is related to the heat transport and Fourier law (March-April), and the third part is about instabilities in the Hamiltonian systems (roughly May-June).

Postdoctoral Fellows and Program Visitors

We will support a number of Fields postdocs for the duration of the program, as well as offer support towards a visitors' program, including visiting Ph.D. students

All scientific events are open to the mathematical sciences community. Visitors who are interested in office space or funding are requested to apply by filling out the application form. Additional support is available (pending NSF funding) to support junior US visitors to this program. Fields scientific programs are devoted to research in the mathematical sciences, and enhanced graduate and post-doctoral training opportunities. Part of the mandate of the Institute is to broaden and enlarge the community, and to encourage the participation of women and members of visible minority groups in our scientific programs.
