Workshop on

Phase Transitions


Particle Systems

24-26 June 2019

Systems with many interacting stochastic particles play a key role in the mathematical modeling of several processes and phenomena in sciences and technology. Such systems may be of different types and, depending on the model, they contain moving or static particles, have interactions with each other or with a surrounding medium, show different behaviour depending on the value of some parameters, etc. Also the mathematical questions that can be posed and answered are quite diverse, for example one can look for links between microscopic and macroscopic descriptions of the same phenomenon, convergence of scaled quantities, emerging spatial structures, properties like percolation, crystallization or condensation, dependencies of the global behaviour on parameters, and more. The aim of the workshop is to give an overview on recent developments on dynamic and static problems involving several interacting components.

The scientific program is composed of two minicourses taught by two world-class experts and eight research talks by distinguished invited speakers. We particularly encourage young academics to present their research during a poster session, which will also be an integral part of the workshop.


Minicourse speakers

  • David Dereudre (Université Lille 1)
    "Gibbs point processes"
  • Kavita Ramanan (Brown University)
    "Scaling Limits of Interacting Particle Systems"
